Have you ever been to a really loud concert only to leave the venue with ringing ears and deafened hearing? Or have you ever developed a bad cold or sinus infection and wake up one morning with no hearing in one of your ears? Though often terrifying, instances like these are common side effects of temporary hearing loss.
Temporary hearing loss is when an individual experiences a ringing sound or muted hearing in one or both ears. Though these effects typically only last for a short period of time, they can be damaging to you hearing in the long run.
Though there are many different things that can cause temporary hearing loss, below are three of most common and how to prevent them:
You can prevent temporary hearing loss due to loud noises by being vigilant about wearing earplugs in loud working environments or during loud extracurricular activities, choosing seats away from speakers at concerts, and turning down the music in your headphones.
When this buildup occurs, the easiest way to restore hearing to normal is to visit your local healthcare provider, who can quickly and easily flush or remove the wax from your ear. You can also attempt at-home methods and remedies.
The best way to prevent this from happening or resolve the issue, is to visit the doctor and start a dose of antibiotics. These medical professionals can also prescribe ear drops to help clear the passageway or use a different technique to help remove fluid buildup.
