I was recently diagnosed with sudden sensorineural hearing loss and am on a course of steroids, both oral and injected in the ear. One week before my diagnosis, I began using a sauna daily: 20 - 25 mins at 194 degrees F. I asked my ENT if I could continue my sauna use and he said it should be fine, but reading this article suggests that my sauna use could be correlated with my hearing loss. I plan to discontinue my sauna use, while I'm undergoing treatment. Any thoughts on whether I'm being too conservative?
