What is the treatment for allergic rhinitis?

Q: Three years back I had allergic rhinitis which caused the blockage of the Eustachian tube on my left side, diagnosed as bulbar myringitis. Since then I have lost 50 per cent of hearing and continue to suffer from tinnitus - a whistling sound in my left ear. What should I do to regain my hearing?

A:If the doctor told you that the tube is blocked, then it means that the mucoid discharge is trapped behind your tympanic membrane. You need to see a specialist who will do a test called tympanogram and treat accordingly. This condition is usually treated medically first, and if there is no relief, then surgically.
