Rarely: Bell's palsy can often take a long time to resolve, and rarely can have permanent effects. In very rare cases, symptoms can be caused by a tumor, but you should consult an ENT doctor for this.

Yes: If you continue with symptoms beyond about a week despite over the counter medications like tylenol, (acetaminophen) rest, and hydration you should see your doctor again. Viral infections may sometimes turn into bacterial infections, requiring antibiotics. Sometimes allergies can mimic a sinus infection and need prescription medications to help.

Steroids: Some meniere's patients benefit from oral steroids and sometimes steroids injected behind the ear drum (transtympanic injection). You should also have a diet low in salt and avoid caffeine and alcohol. Consult your ENT doctor if you are having side effects from the medicines prescribed.
