Perforated eardrum.. Need advice?
GemmaAbbey21 posted:
Hi everyone..

I got water in my ear 2 weeks ago, and my ear has been blocked since then, I can't hear very well out of left ear.. I went to see 3 doctors. The first said to use "Otomize ear spray"... Second said to use sodium bicarbonate and the third informed me that I actually have a perforated ear drum. She said it was a small hole that will heal in a month or so if I keep it dry..

My biggest worry is, would the use of otomize ear spray as well as the sodium bicarbonate drops have damaged my hearing?! I used them for 5 days...

Any advice welcome, thanks a lot for any input!!
