There are no natural treatments with bacteria-killing abilities that can do this. ...Read more

If the problem is too severe, then a more formal operation to fix and support the eardrum could be done. An ear tube may still be required. There are some centers that are doing a balloon procedure on the eustachian tube. ...Read more

If he's getting more pain or discharge from the ear or fevers, he needs to go in. Tell him if he loses his hearing, you'll just have to talk louder. Good luck! ...Read more
