      Hi,

      I have had tinnitus for 4 months now and have not taken any treatment at all. I have been t scared to put anything in my ears or do anything that could possibly make my tinnitus worse.

      I have been told by my ENT ,that I was only able to see 2 weeks ago, that I have a 'small' ear infection. He said there is also a ear wax build up. He offerd to do micro suction but I was to scared of the noise so I said no. Then he gave me ear drops and antibiotic spray Otomize and then I left.

      I dont want to take Otomize because I have read it can make tinitus worse. My tinnitus has actually got slighty worse on its own recently and I have been worrying a lot. I dont know what to do and Im really scared.

      Please Help?

      I got tinnitus by putting a sharp object in my ear. Ive been told there is no peroration, apparently.

      Yeah neomycin - stay the fuck away from it.

      Go to another ent for checking up on you - there might not be even infection anymore.

      Are you aware that antibiotics are fairly new treatment option - less than 100 years old.

      You can always count on infections to "go away" but it isn't always the smartest thing to do. Go and see a doctor, dont be an idiot that tries to self diagnose since you cant see insides of your ear.
