Yes: Rupture of the ear drums can occur from infection, foreign body, q-tip use and rarely blowing your nose too hard with the nostril closed. But you can not know this unless you have hearing loss, and perhaps bleeding from the ear. You need a diagnosis. See your physician or better yet and ENT doctor.
