Table of contents:

DermOtic Oil is a prescription medication used to treat chronic eczematous external otitis, which is a skin condition that causes inflammation and itching of the outer ear.

The main active ingredient in DermOtic Oil is fluocinolone acetonide, which is a corticosteroid used to reduce swelling, redness, and itching of the ear. DermOtic Oil should only be used in the ear and not in other parts of the body.

Use and Dosage

Before using Dermotic Oil Ear Drops, wash your hands first. To prevent contamination, you should not touch the dropper tip or allow it to make contact with your ear or any other surface. You should lie on your side or tilt your affected ear upward when administering the drops.

The recommended dosage of DermOtic is 5 drops twice a day for 7 to 14 days. To use the ear drops, one should wash their hands and lie down or tilt their head with the affected ear facing up. Then, gently pull the earlobe backward and upward and apply 5 drops of DermOtic Oil into the ear. Keep the head tilted for about a minute to allow the medication to spread throughout the ear. Hold the dropper directly over the ear and place the prescribed number of drops into the ear canal, usually twice a day or as directed by your doctor.

  • For adults, hold the earlobe up and back to help the drops roll into the ear.
  • For children, hold the earlobe down and back. Keep your head tilted for about 1 minute or insert a soft cotton plug if so directed.

Remove the plug after 1 minute. If directed, repeat for the other ear. Do not rinse the dropper, replace the cap after use, and do not bandage, cover, or wrap the area unless directed to do so by your doctor.

Avoid getting Dermotic Oil Ear Drops in your eyes, nose, or mouth. In case of contact, rinse with plenty of water. The dosage of Dermotic Oil Ear Drops is based on your medical condition and response to treatment, and you should use it regularly to get the most benefit. Use the medication only for the condition for which it was prescribed and do not use it for longer than prescribed.
