What's your diagnosis?
I'll post the correct answer in a couple of days!
If anyone has an idea, there's still time.
I'll post the correct answer in another three days.
Eardrum (tympanic membrane) perforation.
It can be a result of otitis media, trauma (e.g. when trying to clean the ear) or loud noise (e.g. an explosion). Eardrum perforation leads to conductive hearing loss. It may heel in few weeks up to several months. Some cases require intervention.
