Ringing in ears 2 weeks after bad head cold/cough. Was prescribed Claritin (loratadine) for ear tube blocked from cold. How long will ringing last?

In brief: Mgt

If you feel otherwise well it may take a few weeks for an effusion to resolve.
If there is fever, reduced hearing or headache, please see your PCP.

In brief: Not uncommon

but if your ears are blocked, Claritin would not do much for you since it possesses no decongesting effect.
If you must , try an OTC nasal decongestant spray for no more than 5 days and see if this helps.
