Hello and hope you are doing well.

Perception of abnormal ear or head noises is termed as TINNITUS. Persistent tinnitus usually indicates the presence of sensory hearing loss. Intermittent periods of mild, high-pitched tinnitus lasting for several minutes are common in normal hearing persons. Since your problem has been of a recent origin associated with an infection, it may be a temporary phenomenon. Please re consult your doctor if the infection has not resolved, he may prescribe alternate antibiotics.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
