Vosol HC (acetic acid / hydrocortisone) for Otitis Externa: “It is the only thing that works for my chronic otitis externa. My only complaint is the $200.00 price increase. Yes, last summer I could purchase it for $36.00, at this time I must pay $228.00 for a 10 ml bottle.”

Vosol HC (acetic acid / hydrocortisone) for Otitis Externa: “I am extremely disappointed in the discontinuance of this product. It is the ONLY thing that helps me with itchy and inflamed ears. I am a hearing aid wearer, and have lots of issues with my ears. PLEASE bring this product back! I used this PRN and not every day.”

For Otitis Externa: “It gets worse before it gets better?? I'm at the worse part right now, hoping it gets better. Went to the doctor because of what I thought was a clogged ear. She said my ear wasn't clogged but infected and prescribed these drops. My outer ear is now red, swollen and crusty. My ear constantly leaks. It's terrible.”

Vosol HC (acetic acid / hydrocortisone) for Otitis Externa: “OK, but I liked Cortisporin better. If you need the cortisone to reduce swelling & related pain. If it's just the itchiness, try a 50/50 mix of isopropyl alcohol and white vinegar. The vinegar gets you the acidic antibacterial/antifungal effect, and the alcohol speeds drying and evaporation.”

For Otitis Externa: “After putting 2 drops of acetic acid/hydrocortisone ear drops, the ear hurts for half an hour. I am going to call my doctor to change to another eardrop.”
