Introduction

Chloro Ear Drop is an antibiotic that fights bacteria. It is instilled in the ear to treat infections of the ear caused by bacteria. It works by killing the bacteria that cause these problems.

Chloro Ear Drop helps to improve your symptoms and cure the underlying infection. Follow your doctor’s instructions precisely for administering this medicine in the ear. Wait for at least 5 minutes before applying any other medication to the same ear. It should be used regularly at evenly spaced time intervals as prescribed by your doctor. Do not skip any doses and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. Stopping the medicine too early may lead to the infection returning or worsening.

It is active against many types of bacteria. However, it will not work for other types of ear infections (e.g. viral) and therefore, should only be used if prescribed by your doctor. Unnecessary use of this antibiotic can lead to unpleasant side effects and a decrease in its effectiveness in the future.

The most common side effect seen after administration is temporary ear discomfort. Inform your doctor if this persists or if your condition worsens. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should consult their doctor before using it. This medicine should not be used for longer than one week.

How Chloro Ear Drop works

Chloro Ear Drop is an antibiotic which stops the growth of bacteria that cause ear infections. It does so by preventing synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. This does not directly kill the bacteria, but prevents them from increasing in numbers, and eventually clears up the ear infection.
