Introduction

Milbeta Ear Drop belongs to a group of medicines called steroids. It is used to relieve swelling, itchiness, and redness of ears that may be caused due to infection. It reduces inflammation by stopping the release of substances that cause the inflammation.

Never use Milbeta Ear Drop if the seal is broken before you use it for the first time. You should shake the bottle well before each use. You should not discontinue using the medicine unless your doctor tells you so. Stopping the medication before time may allow the bacteria to continue their growth, which may result in the return of the infection.

It may cause irritation in the ear and bitter taste in your mouth. However, these side effects are usually temporary and resolve with time. Do not use the medicine on your ear if you have a perforated or ruptured eardrum. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should consult with their doctors before using this medicine.
