A few days ago, I noticed some discharge in my ears. I consulted a doctor, and I was diagnosed to have a small hole in my eardrum. He gave me Durataz injection (Piperacillin and Tazobactam). Now there is no discharge.
How to treat the hole in my eardrum without surgery?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Thanks for the briefing regarding the problem in concern. I had a detailed look at the picture you have sent (attachments removed to protect the patient’s identity).
The tympanic membrane (eardrum) perforations may close spontaneously under certain specific conditions. Smaller the size of the hole, the higher the chance of closure. The wet and actively discharging ear will not close spontaneously. An intact mastoid system and eustachian tube ventilation have a higher chance of closure.
If you have small perforation, and if it is dry without any discharge and underlying comorbidities, and also, if your ear does not get infected in between, there is a possibility that your eardrum will close spontaneously. We can wait for eight to ten weeks for the perforation to close on its own.
I hope this answers your query.
