      Tinnitus Since:
      Initial 2012. Massive spike 4/2015
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Noisey Lifestyle. Increase from infection.
      I've asked question in doctors corner but i'm also curious of other people opinions. Personal experience with antibiotics or maybe even this infection. Basically i took microbial test with ear puss/wax and got following results:


      S means its susceptible to that antibiotic. Im little anxious about taking fluroquinolones as staph develops resistance to it pretty fast. My ear drum is in perfect shape (so says doctors when examining it under microscope).

      Im kinda wishing that oxacillin/benzylpenicillin would work but im not sure if 0.12/0.25 is good resistance or bad compared to lets say vancomycin that has value of 1.

      since my life turned to hell after infection in right ear that was treated with ofloxal and clarithomycin (fortunately T volume is 10 times lower than it was in its worst) im worried to not take ototoxic meds even if they only chance of 1-5% to make my life worse again. On the other hand I have no idea how bright idea it is to go around with staph in my ear.

      Wow. I wish I had some advice to offer. Perhaps Dr Nagler might be able to offer some. He would know more about the medicines and their effects.
