Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Prematurity may be the cause for hearing loss.

Has BERA test been done?

And what is its inperpretation?

If there is sensory hearing problem, the treatment is cochlear implant only.

In this type of hearing problem, hearing is not improved by using the drugs or medication.

I advise you to consult an ENT specialist and audiologist for further advise on implant.

Coming to homeopathy, i am not an authentic person to comment on its effectivity in treating this type of problems, but in general this type of hearing impairment may not be treated with medication of any alternative medicine.

Hope I have answered your query.
