Can The Drug Reco Chloramphenicol Soften Ear Wax?
Hello, I want to ask if the recycled chloramphenicol ear drops can be used to soften hardened earwax? If possible, how can I use it, thanks?
Thank you for the question.
Basically ear wax or serumen is a form of defense of our body in protecting the ear from infection and foreign objects. This serum serves to cleanse and lubricate the ear canal so that it is free from dust, bacteria, and foreign particles that enter the ear. The normal amount of the urine does not need to be cleaned often because the cerumen will move from the ear canal to the outside of the ear. However, there are several conditions that can cause the cerumen to harden and obstruct the ear canal (serumen prop), such as excessive production, dirt that is too hard and dry, narrow canals, and the habit of inserting the ear canal bendake.
To be able to treat serumen prop, you can drip drops containing sodium bicarbonate, olive oil, glycerin, or a liquid containing hydrogen peroxide 2-3 times a day for 3-7 days to soften hardened earwax, so that earwax can come out by itself.Then, after soft earwax, spray warm water into the ear canal gently, tilt the head and pull the earlobe. You can also use a special tool to clean the ears and scrape the serumen prop from the ear.
The drug that you mentioned is a class of antibiotics used to treat ear infections but cannot be used to soften ear wax.
If you have treated a child's ear with ear drops but there has been no improvement for more than 7 days and the cerumen has been very hardened, you should not do any manipulation of the ear such as scraping it, you better go directly to the ENT specialist to perform ear cleaning with an instrument specifically, because if left unchecked will cause infection or cause hearing loss. Also, don't forget to avoid prying ears with cotton buds, because there is a risk that you will put dirt in and leave cotton fibers in your ears.
I hope this helps :)
