Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

With this symptom of ringing in ears, the next step is to consult your doctor and evaluate your hearing. This is because sometimes such ringing in the ear is associated with hearing impairment which needs to be detected early. Also, your doctor can prescribe medications which can reduce the tinnitus if the ringing is disabling. In most cases, such type of ringing without any hearing loss will resolve by itself after 8 to 10 weeks.

Take care.
