I was diagnosed with labyrinthitis about six weeks ago. I am feeling mostly better and wondering if i can swim again? Also are all earplugs effective?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Labyrynthitis is commonly viral in origin and usually resolves in 6 weeks.
Ear plugs can prevent bacterial ear infections but not viral labyrynthitis.
