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 par 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.
