Otobiotic Ear Drop


Overview

Introduction

Otobiotic Ear Drop is a combination medicine that is used to treat ear infections. It prevents the growth of the bacteria that cause infection in the ears. It also relieves the symptoms of inflammation such as redness, itchiness, and irritation.

Otobiotic Ear Drop is to be used as per the label instructions or as suggested by your doctor. This medicine must be applied only to the affected ear and use it regularly to get the most benefit. The course of the medicine should be completed even if you feel better. You must wash your hands before administering the medicine. Do not use it more than the recommended dose.

Generally, this is a safe medicine. However, it may cause mild and temporary irritation in the ear. Consult your doctor if any side effects persist or worry you. If you experience any allergic reaction (rashes, itching, swelling, shortness of breath, etc.), you must seek immediate medical help.

Before using it, tell your doctor if you have an underlying disease or are taking medicines for any health condition. The medicines that are used externally usually do not get affected by other medicines, however, you should let your doctor know if you are taking any medicines to ensure safety.

How Otobiotic Ear Drop works

Otobiotic Ear Drop is a combination of three medicines: Beclometasone, Neomycin and Clotrimazole which treat ear infections. Beclometasone is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the ear red, swollen and itchy. Neomycin is an antibiotic which stops the growth of bacteria while Clotrimazole is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi in the ear. Together, they treat your ear infection effectively.

FAQs

Q. Can I stop taking Otobiotic when I feel better?

No, do not stop taking Otobiotic and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cleared.

Usually, Otobiotic starts working soon after applying it. However, it may take some days to kill all the harmful bacteria and make you feel better.

Q. Is it safe to use Otobiotic?

Yes, Otobiotic is safe when used according to your doctor’s advice and for limited duration of time. However, in some patients it may cause some unwanted side effects like transient burning, itching and irritation at the application site. It may also cause other uncommon or rare side effects. If you experience any persistent problem due to the medication, inform your doctor as soon as possible.

Q. Can I stop taking Otobiotic when my symptoms are relieved?

No, do not stop taking Otobiotic and complete the full course of treatment, even if you feel better. Your symptoms may improve before the skin infection is completely cured.

Q. What are the precautions needed to be taken while using Otobiotic?

Otobiotic should not be used on the face. Do not use the medication for longer than the advised periods of time. Do not apply a bandage or dressing to the area being treated, as this will increase the absorption of the preparation and increase the risk of side effects. This medicine should only be used by the patient and never be given to other people even if their condition appears to be the same.

Q. How to use Otobiotic?

Follow the directions given by the healthcare provider on the medication. Apply the medication thinly and in sufficient quantity to cover the affected area completely.

Q. Can I overuse Otobiotic?

No, do not overuse Otobiotic for long periods or on large areas of skin. It can cause over-absorption of the medicine into the body which may further lead to thinning or weakening of the skin and other serious side effects. If you are experiencing increased severity of your symptoms, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.

Q. What is the storage condition for the Otobiotic?

Keep this medicine in the container or the pack it came in, tightly closed. Store it according to the instructions mentioned on the pack or label. Dispose of the unused medicine. Make sure it is not consumed by pets, children and other people.
