I have had my eardrum rupture twice. As a child, the only thing that helped me was a cardboard oatmeal container with a hole cut out for a lamp bulb to fit through. It was a low wattage bulb & the heat from the bulb & the concentrated heat caused my ear to drain & the pain to lessen. Peroxide is the one thing that you do NOT WANT TO DO! Peroxide eats away at any of the healing cells. This causes a scar tissue to build up. Please do research on this to back up what I am saying. A heating pad does also help since they no longer make cardboard oatmeal canisters.
