Hearing loss due to coughing. Had flu. Done ABR, MRI. Suggest something

I had flu beginning of year. I had a severe cough which caused a temporary hearing loss. My hearing has improved but I still have decreased hearing in my right ear, I keep having to put finger in ear to unplug it. Have seen ENT doctor, had auditory exams, ABR and MRI. Doctor put in tube that caused it to plug up more. I feel there is something going on in my right upper area of the nostril or sinus. This has been going on for over three months. Please, tell me What do you suggest?

Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
When cough started in the beginning ,it was due to allergic sinusitis ,that's why eustachean tube involved and hence there was hearing impairment.
Usually in this type of cases times are the biggest healer.
Any way now please don't insert finger in ear at any cost.
Only use antihistamine drugs and in my opinion you will recover within a short period.
Only wax remover drug in ear you can use.
Good luck.
