Regarding The Side Effects Of Ear Drops?
, I want to ask what is the function and effect of the drug phenol glycerol?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Phenol glycerol has an active composition phenol (carbolic acid) which is an antiseptic liquid. This drug is often used to clean the outer and middle ear area. Phenol itself works by denaturing protein, causing the breakdown of large dirt particles into smaller pieces and easier to clean. In addition to antiseptics, phenols also have other properties, namely:
Anti-pain (anesthetic properties)
Bactericidal (kills bacteria)
Immune system stimulants
Sclerosing agent (triggers the growth of scar tissue), and so on
Often, phenol in ear drops is used as an adjunct therapy for cases related to inflammation in the ear, for example cerumen impacta (earwax blockage), otitis externa (inflammation of the outer ear), otitis media (inflammation of the middle ear), and so on. . Phenol in a parenteral (injection) dish can also be used to provide an anesthetic effect on a painful ear, or it can also be used to minimize pain during an action or surgery around the ear.
Since phenol is not included in the class of free drugs, we are not authorized to explain in detail your question. Therefore, if you want to find out more, you should consult directly with an ENT specialist.
I hope this helps.
