Neomycin, polymyxin b sulfate and hydrocotisone otic solution - is this for a ear infection?

A: 17 Sep 2011 Dont use someone elses drops. they could be contaminated and cause you even more problems and even though the symptoms may have been the same they may be two separate conditions. Call around and get price checks from different pharmacies-you might find one that offers a generic that you can afford. Worse comes to worse, ask your Dr if he has samples. Let him know you cant afford the meds and see if he can give you samples. never a good idea to use someone elses leftover drugs. Votes:+2CommentVote upReportAnonymous 17 Sep 2011D, I agree sooo much.

What is the best way to stop ear infection from hurting?

A: 25 Oct 2011 Bless your heart! ear pain is terrible! Have you tried putting some heat and ice on the area. The ice will help the swelling and the heat will help the pain. You can alternate the ice and heat for 15 min every hour or so (apply either ice or heat for 10-15 min then have it off for the rest of the hour then switch). You can hopefully get to a specialist to find out what is going on. The right antibiotic should help you feel better in a day or two. You might want to go back to the hospital since you are not better and cant get into the Dr sooner. They need to culture the infection and do a sensitivity test to find out what antibiotics will be effective. Votes:+1CommentVote upReport samantha_tilbury 25 Oct...


ear infection?

A: 24 Jul 2011 Hey Kaz, Sorry to hear of the new problem. The antibiotic should help the problem within a few days. As far as over the counter remedies for ear infections, that is a difficult one. It depends on the source of the problem really. As far as preventing ear infections, if an outer ear infection, say from water collecting in the ear, then drops of half rubbing alcohol and half white vinegar may help. If this is an infection that comes from ongoing allergies, then an over the counter medicine for allergies such as Claritin (loratadine) may help. But I must say...
