    Helpful Tips:

    • Before using medication in the ear, examine the ear canal thoroughly to make sure the tympanic membrane is not ruptured. This will avoid the transmission of infection to the middle ear, as well as avoid damage to the vestibular apparatus or cochlea from prolonged contact.
    • Wash hands thoroughly prior to use and wear gloves during administration.
