See your doctor: The presence of a hole in your eardrum will help your ear to drain. If it burst due to infection, you still need antibiotics to treat the infection.

Discharge: Ear drum rupture usually is caused by an acute ear infection. Commonly, a bloody and/or purulent discharge occurs that may be accompanied by pain. An ear exam by your physician should be able to tell you if your ear drum is ruptured.
