If I have otitis, can I use earphones?
A person exposed to loud noises for a long period of time, for example, every day, can lose hearing permanently. This means that your hearing will not be as good as it once was. That is why construction workers and factory workers should wear hearing protection. In addition, lawn mowers and power tools, such as chainsaws, can be loud enough to affect a person’s ability to hear high-pitched noises. These types of noises can also cause a person to have constant tinnitus.
In the best of cases, this hearing dysfunction can be corrected with specific treatments. But in other cases, people have to learn to live with it. We are going to explain below, with the help of experts in hearing aids and hearing prostheses, which are the most frequent ear discomforts.
Otitis is one of the most common pathologies that can affect the ear and requires medical attention. It is usually cured by applying ear drops or antibiotics such as amoxicillin, which will take effect in 7 to 10 days and the pain will start to subside.
The coexistence with vertigo is another of the most annoying situations that occur in the ear. Vertigo is due to an alteration of the vestibular system that results in a consequent loss of balance and the sensation that everything is moving around. The duration of vertigo usually ranges from a few hours to a few days and in 85% of the cases it is caused by hearing problems.
Ear plugged by hearing aids
