About DEXOREN DROPS 5ML

DEXOREN DROPS 5ML belongs to the class of combination medications called ‘antibiotics', and 'steroids' used for the treatment of the bacterial eye or ear infections. It is used to treat eye infections such as conjunctivitis (inflammation of the conjunctiva) and ear infections such as otitis media (middle ear infections) in children with ear tubes and otitis externa (outer ear infections) in adults and children.

Chloramphenicol is an antibiotic that acts by interfering with the formation of essential proteins required for bacterial growth.

It works by inhibiting the chemicals such as prostaglandins that cause inflammation.
