Covid Ear: How can the corona virus affect your hearing?

Are you suffering from Covid ear? Let us give you a sneak peek into the symptoms of covid ear and guide you on how to deal with it.

Some common symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, cold, sore throat. As the variants are changing, so are the symptoms. Some non-respiratory symptoms have also been seen such as headache, loss of smell and taste, pain in the ribs and back. Some people's hearing ability is also affected by the virus and they sometimes hear the sound of ringing. Experts call this the Covid Ear

The coronavirus affects the lungs but it also affects our ears. Some people feel the symptoms of hearing loss due to the virus, while some people hear a ringing sound in the ears, which is called tinnitus. It is also known as the covid year.

According to experts, the inner tissue of our ear contains proteins that can be destroyed by the coronavirus. If the virus affects this tissue, it can disturb the balance of hearing.

These symptoms are seen in covid patients due to inflammation in the body and are quite common.

How long can this problem last?

The more severe the covid year, the more days it will take to recover from it. If the symptoms are mild, then the patient will recover in one to two weeks. If there is an imbalance or there is no hearing at all, then it may take a long time to get rid of its symptoms. If there are more severe symptoms, then definitely see a specialist ear doctor.

What can you do in this situation?

If you have got a covid year, then you can reduce the fever by taking over-the-counter medicines. In this situation, antipyretic medicines can also be taken.

Keep yourself hydrated If there is a pain in the throat and there is also a cough, then cough syrup and honey can be consumed. Give yourself maximum rest.

If these symptoms become more severe, seek medical help.
