Traumatic perforations heal by themselves! Only you should keep the ears dry, no ear drops also.If very small perforations are present the edge of the perforation has to be made raw and a paper patch on it can heal the hole. If not healing now a days endoscopic ear surgeries are done which do not require major hospital and also the cost is less. Visit an ENT FIRST.
