About BECLOMETHASONE+CLOTRIMAZOLE+NEOMYCIN

BECLOMETHASONE+CLOTRIMAZOLE+NEOMYCIN is used to treat ear infections. An ear infection occurs when microbes like bacteria and fungi infect the outer and middle ear (air-filled space behind the eardrum). Symptoms include ear pain, fever, irritability, drainage of fluid from the ear, and hearing loss. 

BECLOMETHASONE+CLOTRIMAZOLE+NEOMYCIN contains Clotrimazole (antifungal), Neomycin (antibiotic) and Beclomethasone (corticosteroid). Clotrimazole stops the growth of fungi by causing damage to the fungal cell membrane. Neomycin prevents the synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. Beclomethasone blocks prostaglandins (chemical messenger) production, which makes the affected area red, swollen and itchy. It prevents inflammation and allergy.

Your doctor will advise the appropriate dose based on your condition. BECLOMETHASONE+CLOTRIMAZOLE+NEOMYCIN is for otic (ear) use only. BECLOMETHASONE+CLOTRIMAZOLE+NEOMYCIN may cause common side effects like ear discomfort and itching or irritation in the ear. These side effects do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, please consult your doctor.

Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding before using BECLOMETHASONE+CLOTRIMAZOLE+NEOMYCIN.

Patients Concern

Disease/Condition Glossary

Fungal ear infection: When a fungus infiltrates and damages the ear canal, which extends from the ear hole to the eardrum, it causes a fungal ear infection, also known as otomycosis (the external auditory canal). People in tropical and subtropical regions typically experience it during hot, humid weather. Pain, itching, inflammation, swelling, redness, hearing problems, ear discharge, a ringing sensation, and a feeling of fullness in the ear are among the symptoms.

Bacterial ear infection: When bacteria infect the middle or outer ear, bacterial ear infection results. Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenza are the most frequently encountered bacterial strains that cause ear infections. Ear pain, including sharp, sudden pain or dullness, constant pain, ear fullness, ear drainage, and muffled hearing, are among the symptoms.
