Cold & flu season leading to temporary hearing loss
Hearing loss is common when you have a cold or flu. Congestion from the illness can build up in the ear which makes it hard for the ear to work properly. Other symptoms from a cold can include dizziness and tinnitus.
It is important to check with your GP, if you believe your hearing hasn't returned to normal then you can book a free hearing test to ensure it hasn't impacted your hearing long term.
