The external ear, that is the auricle and the auditory canal should be thoroughly cleansed and dried. Four (4) to 5 drops of Oticin HC Ear Drops should be instilled into the affected ear 3 or 4 times daily. For infants and small children, 3 drops are suggested because of the smaller capacity of the ear canal. The patient should lie with the affected ear upward to instill the drops and this position maintained for 5 minutes to facilitate penetration of the drops into the ear canal. Repeat, if necessary for the opposite affected ear. If preferred, a gauze ear plug or a wick may be inserted into the ear canal prior to applying Oticin HC Ear 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 Oticin HC Ear Drops. The patient should be instructed to add a few drops of Oticin HC Ear Drops to the wick every four hours, and to remove the wick after 24 hours. Five (5) drops of Oticin HC Ear Drops should be instilled 3 or 4 times daily thereafter. When using a gauze ear plug, the external ear canal is first treated with drops of Oticin HC Ear Drops. Next, the gauze is inserted into the ear canal to contain the medication. The gauze ear plug or the expanded wick are easily removed using fingers, forceps, or tweezers.
This product may be used in the unaffected ear 3 times daily as a preventative.
