What Happens If You Let Water In Your Ear When You Have A Hole In Your Eardrum
Water in the ear: Sometimes, nothing happens. Often, it is uncomfortable since water does not feel good when it's in the middle ear. It's kind of like water going up your nose. Sometimes, the bacteria in water that contaminates the ear can infect the ear. Then, the infected ear will drain and often be uncomfortable. That will require antibiotic ear drops. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes.: Popping can come from a variety of sources - a small bubble bursting, the eustachian tube moving, or debris / or a hair moving in the canal. None of these would be much affected by a hole in the eardrum. ...Read more
Depends: Technically you have many holes in your head, as spaces where important structures enter your brain. If a hole does not penetrate the dura, the linings which surround the cerebrospinal fluid, then nothing happens to the fluid, but if a hole enters the dura, it is exposed, will leak out and risks an infection as well as other consequences related to leaking of the fluid. ...Read more
Not a good idea: The reason is that you want to know what the cause is and treat the underlying condition. As you do that the pain will subside and you will know that it has healed.

What do you recommend if I have a middle ear infection in each ear. They were completely that good or bad?
I know you aren't suppose to blow your nose when you have a ruptured ear drum, but what if you do it with a ear plug in & hear a pop but can hear stil?

Over 90% will heal spontaneously. ...Read more

Theres a rumor going around that parasites can hatch in your ears and get into your brain is this true how would you know if they was in your ear?
Ear parasites: The person who told you this probably already has something destroying their brain. You can get mites in the ear canal, but they do not get into the brain. Occasionally Ascaris will get into the inner ear from the GI tract, but does not get into the brain. Do not worry about this, it is nonsense. ...Read more
