Labyrinthitis (cont.)

Prevention

The only causes of labyrinthitis that you can try to avoid are accidents or trauma to your ear.

Outlook

  • For most causes of simple labyrinthitis, you likely will recover within a matter of days or weeks.
  • Some people may experience symptoms for weeks or months.
  • Others may have periodic recurrences.
