Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

My aunt is 30 years old. She has had an ear infection in her right ear for a week. So her doctor prescribed antibiotics Amoxicillin with Prednisolone. But her tinnitus is not going away. How long will it take for her tinnitus to go away if there is no pain in her ear?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and can understand your concern. Tinnitus, or ringing in the ears, can be a common symptom of an ear infection and can persist even after the infection is treated. The length of time it takes for tinnitus to go away can vary depending on a number of factors, including the severity of the infection, the duration of the tinnitus, and your aunt's individual health status. In some cases, the tinnitus may go away on its own within a few days to a few weeks, but in other cases, it may persist for several months or longer. It is important for your aunt to continue taking her antibiotics and Prednisolone as prescribed by her doctor, as these medications can help clear the infection and reduce inflammation in the ear, which may help alleviate tinnitus. It is also a good idea for her to avoid loud noises and protect her ears from further damage. If the tinnitus persists or becomes more severe, then there are several options for managing tinnitus, including sound therapy, counseling, and in some cases, medications. Hope this helps. Feel free to contact me for further queries. Thanks and take care.
