Can hearing aids help?

I am experiencing ringing in my right ear for 2 weeks and when I consulted doctor, he said me I had a slight outside ear contamination and gave me a few drops for that and eustachian tube dysfunction as well. I had drops and it was alright, yet after a few days it began again. My doctor suggested me to consult an audiologist and I consulted a specialist at Westside Audiology Calgary. found my eustachian tube got plugged and it is almost closed now. What should I do? Will a hearing aid help me as he suggested?

The ringing in your right ear could be a form of tinnitus. That's when you can hear sound or noise not coming from an outside source within your head or ears.

Hearing aids is a popular method of treatment for tinnitus and although it doesn't necessarily provide a cure it does alleviate some of the problem by taking attention away from the sounds.

It's worth consulting more with an audiologist about but if you'd like to look into it for yourself, this is a great website http://www.nhc.com.au/how-hearing-works#6
