In brief: Time Heals

Most ear drum rupures will heal on their own.
The ones that do not , may need a surgical repair. Your doctor or an ENT should follow this. Do not put any ear drops in, unless prescribed.

In brief: Best to be seen

An eardrum rupture is usually a pinpoint perforation to let the infection out and most heal on their own with no problem. With a perforation though it is best to be seen.
..You may need antibiotic drops. The usual things i recommend for ear infections like garlic and willow oil cannot be used with a perforation. Chinese medicine can help and so can your doc.
