Other Comments

If preferred, a gauze ear plug or wick may be inserted into the ear canal prior to applying chloroxylenol/pramoxine/zinc acetate otic drops. When using a wick, a few drops of sterile water should be applied directly to the wick following insertion to facilitate hydration. It should then be saturated with chloroxylenol/pramoxine/zinc acetate otic. The patient should be instructed to add a few drops of chloroxylenol/pramoxine/zinc acetate otic to the wick every four hours, and to remove the wick after 24 hours. Five (5) drops of chloroxylenol/pramoxine/zinc acetate otic should continue to be instilled 3 or 4 times daily thereafter. When using a gauze earplug, the external ear canal is first treated with drops of chloroxylenol/pramoxine/zinc acetate otic. Next, the gauze is inserted into the ear canal to contain medication. The gauze ear plug or the expanded wick is easily removed by fingers, forceps, or tweezers.
