Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query.

1. No, first inform your doctor and get the ear examined.

2. Continue the Odimont and the Floresp.

3. Indiscriminate use of the steroid may flare up an infection.

4. Your doctor can decide after checking the ear. If the ear is normal, you can repeat the Cortimax dose. If there is an ear inflection or inflammation, medication to relieve the pain and infection should be started.

5. Start regular steam inhalation.

I hope that I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.

Regards.
