The Use Of Ear Drops?
Good morning, I want to ask when I use ear drops then I leave it for 10 minutes then when I go back to the original position the medicine that I drops is coming out again, that’s right the drops should come out again should it go inside? Thanks, please answer
Hello Audi, thanks for asking.
The use of ear drops is intended for conditions of infection or cerumen blockage (earwax) that occur in the external ear cavity. Before using ear drops, first make sure the cause of ear problems. For example, ear pain, itchy ears, reduced hearing, and so on. Consult a doctor, so that the doctor can examine directly and provide a directed diagnosis. Then the doctor will determine whether there is an eardrum tear or not. If the eardrum is intact and if there is an infection in the external ear, the doctor will give ear drops.
Ear drops should be dropped according to the recommended dose, let stand for a moment, then return to normal activities. Indeed, because of its liquid form, then some ear drops will definitely flow out again when the head is upright again. However, it should be provided you test the right amount and leave it for a moment, the drug will coat the walls of the outer ear cavity, even though some of the medication is flowing out. Then, the drug that coats the outer wall of the ear will be slowly absorbed. You don't need to worry too much about some of the medicine flowing out again. However, if it turns out that the ear infection does not go away, then you should consult again with your doctor. The doctor may change the type or adjust the dosage of the drug.
Thus a brief explanation from me, hopefully useful. Regards.
