Use Of Ear Drops On An Infected Ear?
Good night, for the use of ear drops for the infected ear, approximately how long the liquid that is dropped into the ear is inside the ear, is the liquid drops dangerous if it does not come out of the ear again / settles?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The following are the ways to use ear drops that are good and right:
Wash your hands with soap before dripping
shake the bottle before use (adjust according to instructions on the medicine packaging)
lie on your side with the infected ear facing up or tilt your head with the infected ear facing up
Drop the medicine according to the dose given by the doctor
stay in this tilted position for 5 minutes
after 5 minutes you can sit up straight again or you can continue to drip the medicine on the next ear (if infection occurs in both ears)
clean the remnants of the drug on the outside of the ear
Basically the drug given is intended to be absorbed from the surface of the skin in the ear canal. This drug will not form a precipitate or cause any particular danger if left in the ear. Make sure you do use ear drops (not oral medicines that are crushed and dropped into the ear or certain traditional herbs).
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
