Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Usually, there is a good chance of recovery of hearing loss
if it has been acute and due to a ear infection
. However, if the infection had been very severe and had caused damage to the nerve
in the inner ear
, then there is a possibilty that some amount of hearing loss can be permanent.
I would suggest that you wait for a month for the infection to completely subside and the inflamation / fluid collection to resolve completely. If the hearing loss is still persistent, then you need to see the ENT specialist
to have an audiogram to ascertain the degree of hearing loss. (An audiogram done now may not be reliable when the inflamation / fluid collection has not completely cleared).
Wish you all the best.
