Can you bathe with a perforated ear drum?
As someone that has had BOTH of my eardrums reconstructed with skin grafts, I can tell you that yes you can bathe but you really want to take all precautions to NOT get water in your ear. It hurts. A lot. Put cotton balls in your ears and wear a shower cap.

Answer . Hi, In my opinion, probably not. Tinnitus is usually related to some type of nerve activity either caused by damage to the inner ear or within the brain itself. I've dealt with Tinnitus for several years now and it's a real annoyance. Better off seeing a specialist to get the cause… diagnosed as there may be a treatment for your specific type of Tinnitus. Hope this helps, Cubby (MORE)
Sometimes i hear my heartbeat through my ear drums. I dont know if this is normal or not, but it could be the cause of the pulse/drum sound your hearing.
The eardrum sends sounds entering the ear canal through the air as sound pressure variations to the cochlea of the inner ear.
I dont know what the ear drum does that is what i am finding out now
By blood! rjaja's answer: damage to ears prevent hearing by making your ear deaf because of loud noises or cold wind.things almost obove the sound of a lawnmower could damage your hearing such as loud band instruments,rock music to the max volume,etcetera, etcetera,blah blah blah.you know what i mea…n.

i works in a weird way it has to bee used very ggod or it will break
The dog will yelp when he opens his mouth. Barking will be limited. Eating will be limited and yelping will occur when trying to eat.
Sounds entering the ear canal through the air as sound pressure variations are collected by the eardrum and are sent to the cochlea of the inner ear.
when you hit the front skin, the pressure will make the resonant skin move ( just like the ear drum!)
Hearing a drumming or thumping sound in your ear is calledpulsatile tinnitus. It can be caused by increased blood flow,turbulent blood flow, or intracranial hypertension.
There are no bone in the eardrum (tympanic membrane). The three auditory ossicles (little bones) are located in themiddle ear. They are the only bones in the ear.
Many many things. Very loud music, cold/infections/viruses etc. Personally mine burst due to a ear infection/virus, because of fluid behind my ear building up. Its completely painless and nothing to worry about but there is a small amount of discharge fluid.
inside your ear canal there is a flap of extremely thin skin, if a sound gets too loud (and in some cases when it is too high pitched) it vibrates so much that it can start to get small holes in it. As there is liquid in your cochlea, that can, sometimes in extreme conditions, leak out through the e…ar canal. This can be extremely painful. (MORE)
The thin, semitransparent, oval-shaped membrane that separates the middle ear from the external ear. Also called tympanic membrane , tympanum.
Yes, I have a scab on my ear drum from an infection I had back in November, it is now April. My ear doctor will have to peel it off
You CAN become permanently deaf in that ear, for one, but depending on the extend of the injury your eardrum can heal itself within a matter of weeks. Mild to severe hearing loss during that period can occur. You may feel nauseated and dizzy, as there's parts in your inner ear which regulate balance… as well. If it happened due to an inner or middle ear infection, there might be pus or blood coming from your ear as well. In any case, if you think you might have busted your ear drum, consult your doctor for further evaluation and medication if needed. (MORE)
you know those little easy rip edges on cereal bags with the little holes that make it easy to rip it off?? well that is perforated... so perforation is like the process of poking the little holes to make it easy rip ... like a coupon or a cereal bag or ... my water bill.
eardrums can be damaged by improperly diving from large hights, other stupid things like putting a cottonbud or a ear spoon to far down your ears can also harm them. listening to very loud music can weeken your eardrums but it takes a huge noise to rupture your eardrums.
The use of the ear drum is that the ear drum is the part of your ear mainly used for hearing.
The ear drum (aka: Tympanic Membrane) has several functions. It helps protect our middle ear space from debris and foreign objects, it connects to the middle ear bones (ossicles) in order to transmit vibrations that enter the ear canal to the middle ear bones. The ossicles are connected to the …fluid-filled inner ear organ (the cochlea). The sound wave vibrations that travel through the tympanic membrane to the ossicles vibrate the inner ear fluid; which helps transmit sound to our brain. The ear drum is sensitive and can break or perforate due to: Penetration due to a foreign object (ex:Que-Tips jammed too far in the ear canal), bugs and other pests can chew through it (this is why it is GOOD not to clean out wax intentionally; our body makes wax to protect the ear drum), or it can rupture due to fluid in the middle ear space building up from infection (this is why "tubes" are sometimes placed in ear drums of people with recurrent ear infections to help even out the pressure from the fluid to protect the ear drum). I have observed people with perforated or absent ear drums, and they can still hear, albeit not as well if they did have one, but as long as the middle ear bones are intact, they will still be able to vibrate to sound waves and thus the person can indeed hear. These patients must be careful because they are more prone to infection without the protection of their ear drum. (MORE)
If you pop your ear drum there would be a great deal of pain. Also there tends to be a liquid that would run out of the ear. Also you would not be able to hear from that ear unitl the ear drum healed.
Some wax might come out of your ear when you lie down, and there might be crust inside your ear
Actually your eardrum does not have electric current and in which it only uses sound so if you get an electric shock it does not harm your ear drums.
It could be an unrelated infection or another perforation or just an earache. Best to let a physician diagnose it hands-on.
After surgery on a perforated ear drum, you shouldn't fly until thedoctor tells you that it is safe. Flying causes changes in airpressure, which can cause discomfort or pain in your ear, as wellas temporary hearing loss. This happens particularly when the planedescends.
Your ear drum senses vibrations, those vibrations are sounds you hear. If we did not have our ear drums sound would simple float through it. If you bust your ear drum you will lose your hearing. Does that answer you question?
Depends on how you hit your ear. Most of the time, nothing will happen. But if you hit your ear just "right", you might force air into the ear canal hard enough to pop the ear drum. Not something to experiment with.
Frogs can hear using big round ears on the sides of their head called a tympanum . Tympanum means drum. The size and distance between the ears depends on the wavelength and frequency of a male frogs call. On some frogs, the ear is very hard to see! frogs have special ears that are connected to th…eir lungs. When they hear noises, not only does the eardrum vibrate, but the lung does too! Scientists think that this special pressure system is what keeps frogs from hurting themselves with their noisy calls! (MORE)
Sound waves make your eardrum vibrate, that is why we heard sound because the sound wave vibrates and allows us to hear sounds. :)
you have an ear infection. go ask your parents to take you to the doctors to get it checked out
Calendula, arnica, hepar sulphur and silicea are some homeopathic remedies that are used in the case of a perforated ear drum. Hypericum is also recommended for pain,and arnica esp in the case of a rupture due to an injury. If there is draining, pulsatillia is often indicated. (Pulsatilla should not… be used during pregnancy, as it stimulates the break down of mucous, and therefore would soften the mucous plug before it would naturally happen at the onset of labor.)Homeopathic remedies stimulate your body's healing responses; in effect encouraging it to do what it is meant to do. There are no side effects to these remedies; they can be used in conjunction with other medications, except steroids, which will render them useless. To determine what remedy is best suited to your individual case, you must take into account a number of factors and, after analysis, choose the remedy which best matches your situation. (MORE)
The OSHA ceiling limit for noise is 130 dB. A scream can exceed that limit and cause permanent hearing loss by damaging the cilia in the cochlea. It may cause that loss without damaging the ear drum.
Yes, then these vibrations are turned into electrical signals that are sent to the brain.
It's the high sound pressure deviation we measure as sound pressure level (SPL) at our eardrums. The threshold of pain is known in acoustics as the lowest strength of a stimulus that is perceived by the ear as painful. Because of the different sensitivity of the hearing of people it cannot be given …an accurate value. You can find the following rounded values for threshold of pain in various audio articles and books: 140 dBSPL equivalent to 200 Pa 137.5 dBSPL equivalent to 150 Pa 134 dBSPL equivalent to 100 Pa 130 dBSPL equivalent to 63 Pa 120 dBSPL equivalent to 20 Pa Sound pressure levels more than 140 dB will burst your eardrums.

I do not have any piercings, though am considering getting my earlobes pierced. Many of my friends have pierced ears and got their ears pierced at either Jollys , Clairs , Accessorise or at a doctors surgery . I suggest if any of your friends have pierced ears that you ask them where they got… them pierced. (MORE)
sound travelling down the ear canal hits the eardrum, which vibrates ... just like a drum!
Ear surgery for a perforated eardrum is only performed in rare cases where it does not heal on its own
The surgeon scratches the undersurface of the eardrum, stimulating the skin to heal and the eardrum to close
The sound vibrations vibrate the eardrum.Then the vibrating eardrum makes the three tiny bones vibrate and then something else vibrates and then the nerve sends message to brain.
no, some animals have ear drums in different parts of their body like legs or sides of their body.
Three small bones, commonly referred to as the "Hammer", "Anvil" and "Stirrup", conduct the vibration of the eardrum to the oval window.
This is the same as asking if you can hear under water and yes, you can hear under water.
the ear helps to hear by reciving the sound waves which makes the eardrum vibrate at the same time sendind signals to the brain for interpretation.
Well, it'd hurt a bit. Your hearing on that side would be degraded for a while. But then it would most probably heal up and you'd be pretty much back to normal.
burst of major sound to the ear, shaking and rupturing the ear drum causing extreme pain and possible loss of hearing.
extremely loud noise can break your ear drums. sticking things in your ears. hard hits to the head. anything loud or physical trauma to your head can cause the ear drums to be broken.
it's an organ which is a group of body tissue all together which has a function. For example the heart is an organ and that pumps blood around the body.
The sound pressure wave is travelling down the ear canal, hits the area of the eardrum, which vibrates ... just like a drum! Sound pressure p = force F divided by area A.
because they could be sencing danger sted of hearing danger becausethen he knows hes safe
Sometimes, if you force air into them hard enough, they can popleaving you deaf or with serious head injuries
