I was given this medicine for an ear infection along with an oral antibiotic. The dr. knew about the hole in my ear drum and my concerns. After 1 use of ear drops(3 drops), I had intense pain in my affected ear. I then read info and it stated to not use in ear drums with holes. It is still hurting after several hours. Have I caused permanent damage and will I be okay.
You need to be checked out by a Dr, there is no way anyone online can tell. Pain is a signal that something is wrong, and based on the facts you've posted here, something is very wrong.
