We also got the prescribed, apparently off-label, after our kid started complaining and crying before/during/after treatment (3rd application) I did a search with this same question.
Maxitrol contains Neomycin. "Neomycin can induce permanent sensorineural hearing loss due to cochlear damage, mainly destruction of hair cells in the organ of Corti. The risk is greater with prolonged use. Therapy should be limited to 10 consecutive days. Patients being treated with eardrops containing neomycin should be under close clinical observation. Neomycin and polymyxin B sulfates and hydrocortisone otic suspension should not be used in any patient with a perforated tympanic membrane. Discontinue promptly if sensitization or irritation occurs."
