OUTER EAR INFECTION (SWIMMER’S EAR) MIDDLE EAR INFECTION WITH TUBES

ILLUSTRATED GUIDE: Outer ear infection (swimmer’s ear)

Close
  • STEP 1: Wash hands
    The person giving CIPRODEX® Otic should wash his/her hands
    with soap and water.
  • STEP 2: Warm & shake bottle
    Hold the bottle of CIPRODEX® Otic in the hand for one or two
    minutes to warm the suspension, then shake well.
  • STEP 3:
    The person receiving CIPRODEX® Otic should lie on his/her side
    with the infected ear up. Patients should have 4 drops of
    CIPRODEX® Otic put into the infected ear. The tip of the bottle
    should not touch the fingers, the ear, or any other surfaces.
  • STEP 4:
    While the person receiving the drops lies on his/her side, the
    person giving the drops should gently pull the outer ear lobe
    upward and backward. This will allow the ear drops to flow down
    into the ear canal.
  • STEP 5:
    The person who received the ear drops should remain on his/her
    side for at least 60 seconds. Repeat Steps 2-5 for the other ear if both ears are infected.

  • STEP 4:

    times in a pumping motion. This will allow the drops to pass
    through the tube in the eardrum and into the middle ear.

    side for at least 60 seconds. Repeat Steps 2-5 for the other ear if both ears are infected.
