  • Consult an ENT regularly for early detection of any ear problems.

Special Advise

  • Do not touch the tip of the dropper as it may contaminate the contents. 
  • Do not place the tip directly into the ear while instilling the drop. If the dropper touches the ear, immediately squeeze two to three drops onto the tissue and wipe the dropper’s tip with saltwater. 
  • Discard any unused medicine after the completion of the course of therapy or within 4 weeks after opening the bottle.
  • The loosened wax comes out on its own in most cases. However, if it doesn’t come out or any wax remains, do not try to use any objects to remove the wax.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Impacted earwax: Earwax (also called cerumen) helps protect the ear from injury, infection, entry of water, or foreign materials. However, too much wax can build up in the ear due to secretions from the ear glands and dead skin cells, leading to impacted earwax. This condition can lead to ear pain, itching, ringing in the ears, dizziness, or loss of hearing. It occurs due to inflammation, injury, infection to the ear, bone deformities in the ear, or skin diseases. It may also occur due to frequent use of earphones, cotton swabs, or other objects in the ear that can push earwax deeper, causing a blockage in the ear.
