Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We are also concerned about your child's condition. You need to know, ruptured eardrum is a condition that is often found in infants and children. This is because the immune system is still low, children and babies are vulnerable to infections, especially in the airways.
In fact, there is a channel that connects the nasal cavity with the middle ear cavity. If the infection is not treated immediately, the infection can spread to the middle ear, causing accumulation of pus, pushing the eardrum, and then causing the eardrum to rupture, so that the fluid can flow out.
This condition tends to recur in these children in the future because unfortunately, a torn eardrum cannot naturally recover. Surgery should be done to close the eardrum, called a tympanoplasty, and that is not a top priority for children your age. The focus is more on preventing the infection from occurring, and if it has been continued, how to deal with it as soon as possible.
For this reason, we recommend that you check your child with the ENT doctor, so that he can receive a thorough examination of his condition and find out whether the condition is correct as we say or there are other conditions that he experienced. You can also ask the ENT doctor, what are taboos and suggestions to do for your child. Meanwhile, keep your child away from sick people, dust, cigarette smoke and pollution, avoid sick people, meet their nutritional needs, keep an immunization schedule, and see a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
