Benefits of Desol Ear Drop

In Softening of earwax

Desol Ear Drop is a liquid solution which helps to soften, disperse and sometimes dissolve ear wax. Although ear wax drops can be an effective, self-sufficient treatment for ear wax, they are more often used before some other form of treatment for ear wax such as ear syringing or ear irrigation. This medicine is absorbed by ear wax, aiding in thinning and softening it in the process. It also lubricates the inner layers of skin lining the ear canal, enabling its movement towards the entrance of the ear canal. This helps in getting rid of the earwax without pain and discomfort.

The major benefit of this medicine is that it is an easily available form of self-care treatment. However, it is best to consult a doctor to get maximum benefit. Besides, it is also a very effective, yet inexpensive way of preventing excessive ear wax.

Side effects of Desol Ear Drop

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them

How to use Desol Ear Drop

This medicine is for external use only. Take it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Hold the dropper close to the ear without touching it. Gently squeeze the dropper and place the medicine inside ear.

How Desol Ear Drop works

Desol Ear Drop is a combination of four medicines: Benzocaine, Chlorbutol, Paradichlorobenzene and Turpentine Oil. Benzocaine is a local anesthetic. It works by blocking pain signals from the nerves to brain which decreases sensation of pain. Chlorbutol is a preservative. Paradichlorobenzene is an ear wax softener which dissolves the ear wax while exerting antibacterial and antifungal actions. Turpentine Oil is a lubricant.
