This is Dr. David

you should see a doctor right away at the ER or hospital or urgent care center

they can look inside of your ears to check for ear wax or fluid in your ear or infection in your inner ear which can cause ringing in your ears.

you might need a course of antibiotics if you have an infection in your inner ear causing swelling and inflammation.

you might need to have your ear wax cleaned out.

you might need sinus or cold medications if you have sinus congestion which can block fluid in your inner ear.

do you have a doctor or urgent care center close to you where you can go?
