Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The product you mention contains the generic Chloramphenicol, and this ingredient is a drug in the antibiotic class that works to treat bacterial infections. What you need to understand is that not all ear disorders require ear drops.
Inflammation of the outer and middle ear is a condition that often requires ear drops. However, these two conditions are also different, infections caused by bacteria require antibiotics, and those caused by fungi require antifungals. In addition, if there is a buildup of earwax, ear drops containing different ingredients are also prescribed to soften the earwax before suctioning is carried out. In essence, ear drops are not universal or cannot be used in all types of ear disorders.
And your condition can occur due to the following risk factors:
The ear canal is moist due to frequent water entry
Frequently cleaning the ear or putting something in the ear
Have a history of ear disorders in the form of discharge as a child
Then regarding your question, the point of what you are reading is that even though the ear drops have their own expiration date, it only applies as long as the medicine has not been opened. When it has been opened or used, all the ingredients that make this medicine mixed with the outside environment, only make this medicine last for 30 days or a month. So after 3 months, you should not use it again.
So our advice, check your condition with an ENT doctor as soon as possible, and in the meantime, avoid picking your ears, putting water, cotton buds or anything into your ears, including drugs that are not recommended by your doctor, and taking over-the-counter anti-itch medications. free at the pharmacy by reading the instructions for use listed.
