I have been diagnosed with Otitis Media and been perscribed ear drops and antibiotics, my eardum later burst and there had been a discharge. Is it still safe to use the ear drops i was prescribed with a perforated ear drum?
Any help would be great!
How are you feeling after your eardrum burst? if there's a drainage or discharge of fluid then you should feel better. that should give you a relief from pain. i would say to hold off on the drops and wait for the antibiotics to work.
