I agree with you, she probably perforated the eardrum. Is the yellow liquid that drains out clear or pussy? if it looks like pus she probably needs a follow up visit with another course of antibiotics ( maybe a swab sent to the lab too to determine if it is a resistant bacteria) Most perforated eardrums heal by themselves and only persistant or big perforations need physical repair. It will however be good to let your doctor have another look to see if she needs referral to an ENT specialist.
