Rupture?: By popped do you mean rupture. An acute infection can cause the eardrum to rupture. This can be painful and is followed by drainage of the pus from the ear, which can then decrease the pain as the pressure is released. Happily, most of these heal on their own. If it doesn't, then you may need surgery to repair the hole.

A 36-year-old female asked:

Hi there If a person had gonarreah and had been apparently treated for it. Are there tests that can prove that there was ever a gonarreah infection in the first place without the person even knowing about having this infection?

Not for prior GC : Unless there are tests results for GC prior to treatment, there is not an available antibody test to show prior infection from GC. The RPR test can show prior infection evidence from syphilis. IGG Antibody results reveal prior infection and/ or immunity from many viral infections.
