A ruptured eardrum can cause a white, slightly bloody, or yellow discharge from the ear. Dry crusted material on a child's pillow is often a sign of a ruptured eardrum. The eardrum may also bleed.
Causes of a ruptured eardrum include:
- Foreign object in the ear canal
- Injury from a blow to the head, foreign object, very loud noises, or sudden pressure changes (such as in airplanes)
- Inserting cotton-tipped swabs or other small objects into the ear
- skin irritations in the ear canal
Natural therapy is the best curative way for this problem.
Follow these steps to get rid of it:
1. Get two spoons of lime juice.
2. Add one spoon of pure honey and small salt.
3. Mix together.
4. Apply to the affected ear until it clears.
