Re: burst eardrum HELP
Hey there, Poor liitle man! Now that the ear drum has actually burst, the worst of the pain should be over.... unless the other eardrum is on its way to bursting too, which can happen. The worst of the pain is usually when the ear drum is swollen and the pus that is built up behind it puts pressure on the delicate membrane. Once it has actually burst, the pain subsides. I am not sure how old your little boy is, however if the pain is bad and he over 18 months old, give him a dose of Neurofen then give him a dose of Panadaol 2 hours later. Repeat the Neurofen 2 hours after that . This will reduce his pain significantly and is safe as the pain medications have different actions. It will not overdose him.Only do  this for 3 dosese of each then stick with one or the other on 4 - 6 hourly doses.  The antibiotics will also help fight the infection and once this happens he will be well on the road to recovery. It should not affect the planned grommits...if anything it should spur the decision to have them put in sooner rather than later. The ear drum does actually heal over if the infection is treated. The membrane will mend, however each burst will result in scarring which makes the membrane stiff. This results in hearing loss. By having the grommits inserted, it will prevent the continual bursting and the subsequent scarring.Many children are prone to ear infections but they do usually outgrow them as they get bigger as the Eustacian tubes grow and lengthen, getting rid of the bends that tend to harbour the infection. The grommits help prevent permanent hearing loss. Best wishes, hope your little boy feels better soon. ( PS: If he has a runny nose, encorage him to blow to empty it!)

Re: burst eardrum HELP
Apart from pain relief, and depending on the actual cause, massage behind the ears, gently of course. The massage will help promote blood flow which means more oxygen which in turn means quicker healing.  It will also help to drain fluids away from the ear canals and from around the drum.  You might want to wait until the pain meds kick in first though. Icey things (ice blocks, cubes) will help to numb the throat, which will dull some of the pain in the ears (they are connected after all).

HI, There is something called painstor for children it's over the counter and it's got codine in it.  If he's in huge amounts of pain this might help more...  Speak to pharamist. Good luck with him.

 Other than neurophen and panadol like nat said not sure there is anything you can give Patrick. I hope the antibotics kick in quickly and give hime some relief. You sure are having a bad time of late, also hope you are feeling better within yourself.
