No need to worry

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Let me assure you that no harm will befall your child. Otogesic ear drop is for external application. So, overdose is unlikely. No specific precautions need to be taken. Just wipe off the excess amount and things should be fine.

Let me know if I could help further.
