I got a hole in my eardrum due to a rollercoster ride this past weekend. Does anybody have anything like this happen to them? How long did it take to heal? Are there any lasting effects ? It does not hurt since it was due to injury and not infection but should I be taking antibiotics just for precaution? I try to have a earplug while showering so that water doesn't go in. any other tips or experiences? sucks I was planning white water rafting before the end of summer but I guess not.
