... year old now he is holding his head behind his ear crying
Yes. Clotrimazole solution can be used to treat fungal ear infections. Two to three drops of the solution should be put in the ear two to three times daily. Treatment should be continued for at least two weeks after the symptoms of the infection have cleared up.
It probably feels uncomfortable for your son. Warm the dropper bottle up in your hands before using the solution and get your son to lie down whilst you instil them. If it is too difficult speak to your doctor.
Hi, my 4 year old had tubes placed in both ears and adenoids removed about 2 weeks ago, he was prescribed antibiotic (zithromax) and ear drops antibiotic to both ears, a week ago they did a culture it turns out that he has a yeast infection she prescribed Clotrimazole Topical solution and it says for external use only, I just want to make sure is safe to put this in his ears. I got the drops today I called the doctors office they never called me back, they closed early for the holiday weekend. Did you use this treatment for your son and Did it work?
