Otocain drops provide a powerful combination of antibiotic and pain relief properties, making them a valuable remedy for bacterial ear infections and the accompanying discomfort. The active ingredients include Polymyxin, an antibiotic, and Lignocaine, a local anaesthetic. Designed to combat otic infections stemming from bacterial sources, Otocaine Drops are particularly effective against otitis externa, an inflammation of the external ear canal, and painful ears. By targeting causative bacteria, these drops alleviate pain, numb the affected area, and reduce pressure in the outer ear canal.

  • Administer the medication into the infected ear according to your doctor's instructions, typically 3 to 4 times a day.
  • The ear should be clean and dry prior to applying the drops. Ensure that the drops are used exclusively in the ear and not in the eyes.

  • Storage should occur in a dry environment below 30°C, shielded from direct sunlight.
  • Non-habit forming and non-sedative. Safe for use in children.
