Inner Ear Inflammation And Treatment
Got vertigo about 2 weeks ago from inner ear inflammation. How long can it take for vertigo to go away? I'm better than 1 week ago & balance is better
Two weeks: Irritation of the balance system will result in vertigo, nausea, even vomiting with balance problems. The system needs time to recover and re-regulate. This usually takes about 10 days to two weeks. Medications may make recovery faster, but some make it slower and cause persistent symptoms. Rest and good health habits improve rate of recovery. ...Read more
The inner ear refers to that part of the ear where mechanical sound energy is transferred to electrical signals that are then sent through nerves to the brain. It also refers to the part of the ear that assists in the regulation of balance. The inner ear includes the cochlea (hearing) and ...Read more
My doctor told me I have labrythitis and told me to take mecklizine as well as xanax (alprazolam).. How does the Xanax (alprazolam) help with inner ear inflammation?
It doesn't: Xanax (alprazolam) is really just a "band-aid" to help you deal with the symptoms from the labyrinthitis but it has no effect on inflammation. There are a number of natural herbs/vitamins that can help with inflammation and symptoms, so speak to your doctor. Consider vitamin c, magnesium, ginger, zinc, etc. ...Read more
Depends: The answer depends on the severity of the infection and the bacteria or virus causing it. If truly with an accompanying inner ear issue, an antihistamine or decongestant medication, even one such as "antivert" (meclizine) may help with symptoms of dizziness, etc. And once treated with antibx if needed and meds as above, you should get better in a few days. If not, then see ENT dr. Good luck. ...Read more

Inner ear eczema & otitis, ointment, drops (tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) & burosol) are temp fixes. It's been going on for more than a year now. Need alternate suggestion?
Eczema of ear : You have to be patient with this condition. It takes a long time for this to heal. I usually write for triamcinalone cream 0.1 % and tell my patients to put it liberally on a qtip and twirl it in the ear canal and rub some on the flat part of the concha of the ear. It is a prescription so ask you family doctor for it. In two weeks you will be better. Only use for 2 wks then once a week after. ...Read more
Have inflammed inner ear nerve. How long for prednisone to start relieving symptoms (tinnitus, hearing loss)? On 100mg, 90 mg then 4 more days tampering by 20mg. Today took dose 2, feel the same.
Vestibular Neuritis: I assume a full work up has been done including MRI of brain and inner ear to rule out other cause of Tinnitus and hearing loss, if that's the case it depends how soon the treatment has been started, if it has been started early in course all symptoms should be resolved soon, if not mild hearing loss could persists. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have been diagnosed with an inner ear disturbance at a distisorder clinic my symptoms are feeling out of balance dizzy nauseated at times fatigued they recommended physical therapy there has to be something else that can help me ?
Diagnosis: If appropriate objective vestibular function tests have documented an inner disorder, then physical therapy by a therapist trained in vestibular rehabilitation can be very helpful. Usually inner disorders resolve in time. Depending on who made the diagnosis, ent vs. Neurologist, there may be more specific therapy. If an ENT made the diagnosis, then a consultation with that person may help. ...Read more
No: Strep pyogenes or b-hemolytic streptococcus is not a common cause of acute ear infections today. Before the use of antibiotics it was a serious disease leaving a large perforation in the ear drum. However, if a culture of pus from the ear canal demonstrates this bacterial organism it can be treated with a penicillin derivative. Culture needs to be made before treatment is started. ...Read more

Diagnosed with ear inflammation and tiny hole in my eardrum. doc gave me moxyvit and desoren. I read in cases of perforated ear drum desoren isnt good?
Ear Drops: I have no personal experience with these medications. Anytime you believe a medication may cause harm, was prescribed in error or are not sure about the medication or what it is treating you should talk with the doctor who prescribed it. Doctors are diligent and always have the patients best interest in mind but during a busy day it is possible to fail to consider contraindications to the med. ...Read more

Im ear pain with discharge take treatment not improved diagnosis? Fungal otitis media please need treatment
Update from my last question, I meant to say that I have inflammation in the ear canal and it's covered by some yellowish crusty stuff, is this a case of otitis media?, its been going on for 3 days, is it serious?
Otitis Externa: Inflammation of the canal is more likely otitis externa and it can have a discharge. Bacterial ear infxn needs to be treated with abx which will require a trip to a doctor. Externa can be serious in patients with diabetes or immunosuppression. Drainage for 3 days should be treated seriously. Likely you'll get a rx for abx drops +/- pills and perhaps a wik in the canal if bad. Hope this helps! ...Read more
