8 yearboy with hearing loss

Hi Sumaira,

Sorry to see you boy is not well. Sickness in children is always distressing.

Happy to give you information on this but please be aware that The Health Success Site is nutritional advice and specific information here applies particularly to Herbalife products (that we do not supply yet in Pakistan). See your doctor for medical advice.

That said, a ruptured ear drum will normally heal within 6 to 8 weeks and the hearing loss associated with it will recover as it heals. Provided there is no infection there should not need to be any specific treatment for this and it should heal itself.

There should not be any long lasting side effects from the rupture.

A ruptured eardrum will be the cause of the hearing loss but it also makes your middle ear vulnerable to infections or other injury. You need to be careful to avoid getting infection in the ear.

Keep the ear dry (no swimming) and use a shower cap when in the shower to avoid getting water in the ear.
Have him be careful if he blows his nose as the pressure can damage the ear.
Cold air can be a problem so keep ear protected.

If you do these things it should heal fine.

If you start to get infection or increasing pain then get to the doctor immediately. If you get an infection or complication then they may (in very few cases) need to do a small surgery to repair it though even this is not a complicated procedure.

God willing all will be well with your boy if he just takes care of the ear over the next few weeks.

Warren
