Hi!

It is important that you continue to follow through with your doctors treatment. Based on the onset and duration of treatment, together with the locality and severity of the viral infection, your hearing may not become worse. However, it is also important to monitor your hearing. Please consider visiting an Audiologist for a hearing assessment post treatment, as this would be in your best interest. Based on the Audiologists findings you would be advised accordingly, should there be any concerns.
