How or why you think a childhood ear tube has anything to do with that is unclear. It should not.

How long can a hole in ear drum if left untreated before it can cause hearing lost? Can it make ears more sensitive esp loud noises ?
A hole in the ...: Ear drum produces hearing loss because it decreases the surface that sound can strike. Thus the larger the hole the more loss. This loss can be reversed by repairing the eardrum. Further loss can be caused by infections caused by germs passing through the hole. This may be identified by drainage. More infections = more chance of further damage. Some may be repairable and some permanent. See an ent. ...Read more

Possible: There is a communication between the middle ear and the back of the nasal cavity leading to the throat, named eustachian tube. Most commonly allergic inflmmation and secretions may block this important drainage duct with accumulation of fluid behind the eardrum, interfering with hearing. When drained, hearing returns. 'popping' during flights involve the opening/close of this tube. ...Read more
Blocked sinuses. Goes from left ear/nostril to the right. Could it be due to damage to the ear? Loud music?
Moderate allergy: Alternating congestion is simply moderate but not severe nasal congestion compounding the physiologic nasal cycle. Normally one nasal passage works while the other rests. The cycle switches sides ~every 15 minutes. Mild to moderate nasal congestion adds a little more blockage & makes one aware of the normal process. So this is more likely a typical allergy than permanent hearing loss. ...Read more

Can a fan a few feet from you to the left blowing air into your left ear cause ear damage?
(On lowest setting, breeze)
Not likely: Unless your fan is incredibly noisy, it's unlikely that the fan generates enough decibels to contribute to hearing loss. The air current itself, shouldn't create any danger to your ear, unless your fan is incredibly dirty and blowing around dangerous material/pathogens - and this wouldn't be an issue with the fan as so much the hygiene of the environment the fan is in. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How long after ears become completely blocked (due to cold) does fluid begin to build up? Can hearing loss be permanent? Could the eardrum burst?
Variable. No. Rare: Depends on the course of your disease. Sometimes no fluid builds up. Hearing loss is temporary.
