I had my eardrum burst about 3 days ago. I'm on ciprodex and amox-clav. I still feel extreme pressure on my eardrum and I can't hear out of it. Is this normal or should I go back to the Dr. Thank you so much!

A eardrum burst due to trauma takes about 4-6 weeks to heal. Avoid entry of water in your ear while having bath. And keep the ear completely dry.
