My visit to the was both uneventful and a relief.
Though I discoverd I had a slightly deviated septum,
he told me that he didn't have any concerns about my ears even though my right ear tends to get blocked quite a bit due to congestion.
He stated that a lot of people have a slightly deviated septum, which is no cause to worry, so I was definitely relieved by that.
An allergy towards something,
can effect your hearing due to your body's excess mucus production.
And especially if you have a lot of mucus built up within your sinuses so keep this mind when you or your little one has to take a hearing test especially in school.
Our son took a hearing test in school and ended up not passing it due to the mucus built up in his ears.
He took the test in the fall season and with fall comes rain along with falling of the leaves. When leaves are damp and are not able to dry out, mold starts to build.
This also applies to older homes that are not well ventilated.
The school nurse advised us to have his test retaken by his pediatrician even though I knew he did not pass due to the mucus but she still insisted, which I understood.
I kept forgetting to schedule his appointment and didn’t get around to having him retake it until around the winter season. He passed the test with flying colors!
So please be aware that mucus can definitely impede hearing.
I make a point to clear his sinuses with his neti pot at least one or twice a month around the fall, spring and summer months when pollen count tends to be high.
