With time, the cartilage will have more calcium in it&the floppiness will disappear. See ur pediatrician. ...Read more

The causes of tinnitus are many, and the treatment needs to be individualized, you likely have some noise induced hearing loss with tinnitus, and this may respond to medications like Neurontin (gabapentin) or a benzodiazepine. Other techniques like tinnitus retraining therapy may help where an audiologist finds the frequency of your noise and tries to eliminate it.
An excellent website for sufferers of tinnitus is from the american tinnitus association

the techniques listed by the other doctors are correct that tinnitus is worse when the ambient noise level is low and playing background music or white noise may make it less noticeable, but each case may have a unique cause and the more you can describe when it occurs and relate it to things like blood pressure or exercise or straining, the more likely the doctor will be able to make it better.
