What are Otex ear drops used for?
Otex ear drops are used to remove hardened ear wax.
How to use
Only use Otex in the ears. For adults, children and the elderly: Repeat the following once or twice daily, normally for 3 to 4 days, until you notice an improvement in your hearing and less discomfort: Turn the cap anti-clockwise. (This will break the seal when you use the drops for the first time.) Remove the cap to reveal the applicator nozzle. Tilt your head and gently squeeze up to 5 drops into the ear. Keep your head tilted for a few minutes so that the drops stay in the ear. Then wipe away any surplus with a tissue. Repeat in the other ear, if necessary. Wash hands after use. Do not “plug” the ears with loose cotton wool. Always replace the cap after use and return the bottle to the carton. Note that in some cases excessive ear wax may persist for more than 3 to 4 days, despite softening.
If the wax is very hard, the ear drops alone may not be able to clear the ear canal. This may cause some temporary loss of hearing. In these cases you should consult your doctor, nurse or pharmacist for further advice.
If you use more Otex than you should Do not worry if you use too much Otex. Simply wipe away any surplus running from the ear with a tissue. If you forget to use Otex Do not worry if you occasionally forget to use Otex. When you remember, just carry on using this product once or twice daily as usual.
