DermOtic® Oil is a low to medium corticosteroid indicated for the treatment of chronic eczematous external otitis in adults and pediatric patients 2 years and older.
DermOtic® Oil is formulated with 48% refined peanut oil NF. Peanut oil used in this product is routinely tested for peanut protein through amino acid analysis; the quality of amino acids in below 0.5 parts per million (ppm). Physicians should use caution in prescribing DermOtic® Oil for peanut-sensitive individuals.
For the treatment of chronic eczematous external otitis, using the supplied ear-dropper, apply 5 drops of DermOtic® Oil into the affected ear. To apply, tilt head to one side so that the ear is facing up. Then gently pull the ear lobe backward and upward and apply 5 drops of DermOtic® Oil into the ear. Keep head tilted for about a minute to allow DermOtic® Oil to penetrate lower into the ear canal. Gently pat excess material dripping out of the ear using a clean cotton ball. Follow these instructions twice each day for 7 to 14 days.
DermOtic® Oil may be used twice daily for up to 2 weeks in pediatric patients 2 years of age and older with chronic eczematous external otitis.
Derma-Smoothe/FS is for otic use only; not for ophthalmic use.
