Answer

In case of suppurative complications, perforated TM, or suspicion of mastoiditis, consultation with an otolaryngology (ENT) specialist is imperative.

The advice of the skilled ENT specialist is required to choose appropriate medication and to ensure successful treatment of chronic myringitis accompanied by perforation of the TM.
