Dr. Shaym Puppala
Internal Medicine 25 years experience
Usually 1-2 days: Labyrinthitis is thought to be caused by a viral infection of part of the 8th cranial nerve.Symptoms include dizziness, impaired balance, nausea/vomiting.Symptoms generally are at worst for 1-2 days then improve, sometimes with a mild residual dizziness that can last weeks/months. For acute symptoms > few days or not improving over time, best to be reevaluated since may be a more serious problem.

Yes: There are good over the counter medications that help with the nausea, vomiting and dizziness of labyrinthitis but the labyrinthitis (inflammation of the labyrinth or balance canals) will just need tincture of time to improve.

Time: No cure, must let your body deal with the inflammation on its own. Sometimes steroids help, but only during or immediately after the onset of the labyrinthitis.
A 52-year-old member asked:

What do fluid tablets do to help labyrinthitis?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Dennis Diaz
ENT and Head and Neck Surgery 38 years experience
Not helpful: I am not aware of fluid tablets being helpful for labyrinthitis which is an infection or inflammation of the balance portion of the inner ear. Vast majority are viral infections. Fluid tablets are most often used in the management of meniere's disease which is believed to be due to a build up of fluid in the semicircular canals of the inner ear.
