Question: 

Does
pouring water into a fasting person's ear for medical purposes break their
fast?


Answer: 

There is a difference of opinion amongst the scholars in regards to the fast being invalidated by pouring water into the ears. The preferred view is that the fast will not be invalidated. However, there is more caution in considering the fast to be invalid.

کان میں پانی جانے سے روزہ نہیں جاتا عمدا دالنے کے مفسد ہونے میں اختلاف ہے عدم فساد راجح اور فساد احوط ہے احسن الفتاوی ص ۴۲۱ ج ۴ 

Based on the above, the fast will not be invalidated when water is poured in the ears for medical reasons.
