Hi

Thanks for the query

Please do not use any ear drops unless examined and prescribed by the doctor.

Candibiotic is used when there is fungal infection. Please do not use the same if there is otitis media (middle ear infection) or otitis externa (infection of the outer ear), it can worsen your problems.

My sincere advice to you is to avoid water or any sort of drops into the ear. Consult your doctor for a complete examination of the ear and further management. Clean the pus when it is seen outside the ear.

Finally, do not use cotton plugs for your ear, it will lead to stasis of the secretions and further worsening of the problems..

Hope I have answered your query; I will be available for the follow-up queries.

Hello, I have been prescribed Otocomb Otic for what seems like an ear infection, which I am prone to. Since using the drops yesterday, I have been unable to hear clearly from the ear the drops went into, which is my left. I thought it might clear overnight but it has not. Any suggestions? Should I go back to my doctor?
