Can I use lotemax in the ear? I know you can use other eye drops for the ear.I need something for my ear and cannot find it now.I have slight inflammation in my ear and in the past I have been prescribed eye drops for my ear, I don't know if Lotemax is one that is for ear too.
Lotemax belongs to a group of medications known as corticosteroids, or simply "steroids" for short. Steroids can have many different effects in the body, including anti-inflammatory effects.
However, long-term use of steroids can cause bothersome and sometimes serious side effects, and this limits the usefulness of many steroids. Because Lotemax is an eye drop, its effects are generally limited to the eye.
However for a more professional opinion/answer seek medical advice or you could also speak to your pharmacist, hope this helps?
