Define "inner ear": Most use the term inner ear to indicate the ear nerve, which can suffer from viral infections. There is no regular treatment. The middle ear that suffers from bacterial and viral infections responds to a variety of antibiotics when necessary. Evaluation by a primary care provider is needed to select the specific cause and treatment.
