This answer was rated:

I started having a cold almost three weeks ago which developed from sneezing into a bad cough and now has subsequently cleared up. I also had a blocked ear for almost three weeks but it is now much improved. However, I often hear a ringing noise from it. I saw the doctor a couple of days ago who inspected my ear and said that everything appeared clear now and there was no longer any blockage. Why am I still receiving a ringing noise from my ear and how long does it take to clear up please?
Many thanks

I have tried Zyrtec as you suggested previously but there is still ringing in my left ear. Does it normally take some time to clear after my cold has gone and the ear blockage has subsided?

yes it will take some time!

Does it gradually improve or will it suddenly disappear? Sorry to bother you about it but it is extremely irritating.
