Medicine related to functioning the nerve also advised and have had for 3 months continuously but no improvement.Her right ear is ok. Then ENT specialist told it is irreversible....Now already more 6 months has passed. Is there any treatment now to improve it ?

There is no medicine to reverse sensori-neural hearing loss. However, there are surgical options available for single sided deafness. Discuss this option with her ENT to see if she is a candidate. In addition, an audiologist can determine if a CROS hearing aid would help her. These technologies allow the "better" ear to listen for the "poorer" ear.
