Product introduction

Afqure Ear Drop is a medicine used in the treatment of fungal infections in the ear. It works by killing and inhibiting the growth of fungi in the ear. This relieves discomfort, itching, irritation, and pain in the ear.

Afqure Ear Drop is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. This medicine should be used regularly to get the most benefit from it. You can help the medicine work better by keeping the affected areas clean, making sure they are dry, and washing your hands before and after treating the infection.

How Afqure Ear Drop works

Afqure Ear Drop is a combination of two medicines: Lidocaine and Clotrimazole, which treats ear infections.

  • Put drops in the ear without touching the dropper to the ear. Stay on the side for 2 minutes or put a cotton plug in the ear.
  • Avoid contact with your eyes, nose, or mouth. Rinse it off with water if you accidentally get the drop in these areas.
  • Do not try to clean inside your ear with cotton buds. If you stick buds or other objects into your ear, they can further damage your ear. Just wipe the outside of your ear with a clean cloth or tissue if any discharge appears.
  • Do not use the medicine for a longer time without doctor consultation.
  • Make sure not to use the open bottle more than 4 weeks.
