Perforated ear drum: Please discuss this withyour ENT physician or go online to Healthtap prime to discuss with an ENT physician. Hearing is important. Also discuss use of decongestants like sudafed while flying and frequency (as you may need to take before take off and again before landing if flight > 4 hours) and use of antihistamine/ other meds to decrease swelling/ trauma. f/u/ w/ ENT today
