Hi Doc

Further to my last email, do you think its advisable to keep a piece of cotton wool in my ear to prevent infections or any dust etc going into the ear while the ear drum is perforated?
Thanks

Dear Earing
You don't have too - just keep it dry - so put a blob of Prestick in your ear when you wash your hair etc. If it is sore you can use cotton wool to prevent cold air from irritating it.
