Hello doctor,

For the last two days, I have a ringing sound in my right ear. I have not been exposed to loud music but for the last week are so I had itching and the day before the ringing started and my right ear was blocked. So I cleared it with hydrogen peroxide but the ringing is not going away now.

I visited an ENT doctor and he has given me a prescription and asked to wait for six days and then get a PTA and impedance done. I have a slight headache in my forehead and some tightness like feeling under the right ear. I also have an impacted wisdom tooth. I have attached the prescription.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

What doctor has prescribed you is correct. Audiometry will see if you have any associated hearing loss and tympanometry will see if there is any middle ear infection that is causing hearing loss. (though the prescription is not attached).

Wisdom tooth will cause radiating pain or fullness in the ears but not tinnitus. Please do not use hydrogen peroxide drops unless prescribed by an ENT specialist because it is used to remove wax in ears. If your external ear is clear then there is no point in using the drops.

Pressure in the head can be there if you have sinusitis, so do you have any cold or cough right now? because that can also cause a middle ear infection.

Thank you doctor,

I do have a cold and probably all the time I have headaches.

The doctor has prescribed me Neurobion, Wysolone 10 and Ortrivin nasal drops.
