How To Deal With Ringing Ears?
how to deal with ringing ears
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Ringing or also called tinnitius ear is most often caused by hearing loss due to noise (noise-induced hearing loss / NIHL), for example due to exposure to very loud sounds (such as hearing explosions, gun sounds), or exposure to loud sounds in a long period of time (for example hearing the sound of factory machinery, stone crushers, tractors or other heavy equipment without ear protection). Tinnitus can also be caused by several other possibilities, including:
ear plugs due to hardened earwax (cerumen prop)
tumor of the ear
side effects of certain drugs that are ototoxic
otosclerosis (hardening of the bones of the middle ear)
To find out the best treatment for ringing in the ears, you must first find the cause. In general, tinnitus caused by exposure to loud noise will disappear by itself in a few days if there is no exposure to loud noise again. If it is caused by something else or if the tinnitus does not improve on its own within a few days, then you should check with your ENT doctor for further evaluation and management.
If there is indeed a history of persistent loud noise exposure (for example, you work with a machine that produces loud sounds), make sure you use proper personal protective equipment, including wearing ear protectors to protect your hearing.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
