Torn eardrums can be caused by a lot of possibilities. In children, the cause of a torn eardrum is the most frequent ear infections and trauma (pricked by sharp objects penetrating the eardrum). Other causes include barotrauma (change of air pressure too quickly), head injuries and ear by accident, acoustic trauma (hearing the sounds are too loud).

Basically, a torn eardrum can heal by itself within 3 weeks. Even so, when a tear is too large, the RIP reaches the edge of the eardrum, or there is an infection in the ear, healing can happen very slowly or not even happen. In this condition, need surgery to close a tear in the eardrum. To know for sure whether the tear in the eardrum can heal your child yourself or require a specific action, you should consult in advance with the ENT Doctor.

For perforated eardrums and haven't really recovered, activities such as swim indeed should be avoided. When bathing a child, you also have to be very careful not to enter the bath water into the ear. You have to use earplugs (cotton coated with petroleum jelly) on the outside of your child's ears so that bath water does not enter the ear. We recommend that you do not dispense certain drugs to your children's ears without permission from their doctor. Do not scrape the ear with a cotton bud, or other objects.
