My Mother Has Ear Drum Rupture Does That Mean Anything Significant
Depends: This is very common in early childhood with ear infections or after tube extrusion & most infants/toddlers self heal over days/wks. Adolescents or adults may chart a different path. As the healing potential of the body slows, a perforation may become chronic & need a patch.This can be an involved surgery & considered after the ENT was convinced it was needed.Followup with your dr & discuss options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tympanic membrane rupture is also known as Perforated eardrum. Perforated eardrum is a tear in the ear drum. This can occur due to trauma, pressure trauma (a blast of air or water into the ear canal), or from an ear infection. Patients with a perforated eardrum may have reduced hearing and pain ...Read more
Sure, i've heard of ear drum rupture. But now that I have it, I want to know what is really happening in my body.?
Pressure release: When an ear infection's pus causes pressure to build up behind the ear drum, it can pop a hole in the ear drum to drain the pus. Sounds awful, but it isn't usually. It relieves the pain that the pressure causes and drains the pus, helping to clear the infection. Holes typically close very quickly (sometimes too fast and trap some remaining pus!) avoid water in your ear while it heals. See a doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Heal: See your doc to be sure the hole closes. Occasionally these need to be patched, but not usually. Sometimes antibiotics help clear the infection that caused them. If you are worried about the hole itself, think of someone with tubes in the ear. A surgeon put a hole in the eardrum and inserted a tube to keep it open to help prevent pus from building up. Your ruptured drum is similar! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Nothing genetic: I am not aware of any geneticly linked predisposition to ear drum rupture. The ear drum is tucked away in a strong bone protected from most outside events.

With any middle ear infection a rupture might occur & essentially all kids have them but not so many adults. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Hello sir, my mother can not hear properly because her tympanic membrane of both ear is damaged or ruptured fully.If you know any cure do tell me pleas?
Possibly: The same nerves that carry pain sensation are also responsible for itch. It's possible that the healing of damaged surface nerves is making it itch. It could also be dry skin in the ear canal because the fluid that is normally behind the ear drum can now get into the external ear canal. If it persists for more than 7-10 days, you should see a doctor to make sure there's no infection in the canal. ...Read more

No: It doesn't mean you have a tympanic membrane rupture because your ear is ringing, although it is possible. Ringing in the ear can occur from a variety of reasons. Medication effects and nerve related hearing loss are two of the more common underlying causes of tinnitus (ringing in the ears). ...Read more
