Fungal ear infection
Hi, I developed a fungal ear infection. Unfortunately, it was first mistaken for a bacterial infection at first, and I was prescribed antibiotics by a general practitioner. Around the 8th day, ringing started in the ear and ear were completely blocked. After that, we went to an ENT specialist. The ENT cleared the debris from fungal infection and prescribed ear drops for 10 days after that. The infection has now healed and drops are discontinued. Unfortunately, the ringing still continues. Intensity and awareness of the ringing are slowly decreasing. Hearing test shows normal hearing in the ear. Will the ringing go away over time now that the infection has healed? How much time will it take? Never had an issue with ringing or exposure to loud noises before. Thank you for your advice.

Please upload prescriptions of both the GP and the ENT Surgeon and consult me directly as I can only prescribe you medicines in that mode.
