Many ear, nose, and throat conditions, including ear infections, dizziness, rhinitis, and tonsillitis, go away on their own or with self-care. However, when your condition keeps coming back or lingers for a few weeks, it might be time to see an ENT specialist.
You should see an ENT specialist if you have:
Chronic ear infections, especially in children
Experience constant ringing in your ears
Experience hoarseness lasting longer than two weeks
Have a severe sore throat or a sore throat that lasts longer than a week
Notice a lump on or around your neck
Ongoing nasal congestion
Recurring sinus pain or sinus infections
Sudden or persistent hearing loss
