Burst eardrum Rss

My 22 month old woke up from her nap with blood coming out of her ear and doctors confirmed her eardrum had ruptured. She has ear infections in both ears. No symptoms. No fevers, nothing. Just a random there you go double ear infection burst eardrum.

She's on antibiotics and eardrops and pain relief.

Just wondering if anyone else has had an eardrum rupture in their child and what to expect.

Thanks.
Awww poor darling! My friends kids get ear infections all the time and her boy has suffered from burst ears drums on more than one occasion. They have been very painful for him too. Hope she gets better soon.
We have had one eardrum burst and for our son the pain before hand was most painful, once the eardrum burst it relieved the pressure. A couple of days on the antibiotics and she will be feeling great again

Thanks very much girls. It really took me by surprise. It is fairly terrifying to see blood coming out of your child's ear. She is very unsettled tonight, I'm just hoping that it does ease in the next few days.
Hope shes feeling better soon smile

My DD is 31months and had her 1st ruptured ear drum at 8months of age, since then her right ear drum has ruptured about 7 times. She hardly ever shown any signs of infection either, it wasn't til it ruptured that she'd become unsettled. She has just had her grommets put in, so hoping not to have any more. Have you been referred to a ent?

No we haven't. A few people have asked me that though. This is the first time she has ever had an ear infection, and of course the first time her eardrum has ruptured. Is it normal to go see a specialist in that circumstance??

That's a lot to deal with for your poor 31 month old sad Hope the grommets work well.
When we saw the specialist in December they told me she should have been referred after the 1st rupture, it wasn't til the last rupture in December that we were referred and that was by the childrens hospital themselves. Do you have a follow up appointment? Won't hurt to ask.

Yes we do have a follow up appointment so I will definitely ask then. Thanks very much

Dad burst his ear drum doing mk 1 over the south china sea in some form of fighter jet when he was in the RNZAF. He said it was very painful, so lots of sympathy for your mini chicklet. How did her night go anyway??


Pretty ordinary sad She was just uncomfortable I think. She is doing much better this morning though so hoping it just keeps getting better smile Thanks chick. And ow for your dad......
i just wanted to say i'm so sorry this happened to your lil girl. The poor thing, i hope she feel better real soon!

Can i just ask what causes a ruptured eardrum?

The day i broke up with normal was the first day of my magical life...
