What is Otomize?

Otomize is an antibacterial treatment for mild to moderate outer ear infections, otherwise known as ‘swimmer’s ear’ or ‘otitis externa’.

Otomize comes in the form of a spray, containing three active ingredients dexamethasone, neomycin sulphate and acetic acid. Each of these works in a different way to either reduce inflammation or fight the infection at its source.

As ear infections can be confused with allergies and other conditions, before ordering this treatment, you should be diagnosed with an outer ear infection by a healthcare professional.

How does it work?

What makes Otomize so effective at treating ear infections is its ability to reduce inflammation and fight infection. This is achieved by the combined action of the three active ingredients:

  • dexamethasone - a corticosteroid. It works by preventing your immune system from producing the chemicals that cause inflammation.
  • neomycin sulphate - a broad-spectrum antibiotic. It fights infection by stopping bacteria from producing proteins needed to reproduce.
  • acetic acid - an antibacterial agent that creates an acidic environment that bacteria cannot survive in.

These ingredients ease the unpleasant symptoms of ear infections, such as pain and swelling, whilst simultaneously helping your body to eliminate the cause.

As it is applied as a spray, Otomize can very quickly work on the affected site.

How do I use it?

Each 5ml bottle contains dexamethasone 0.2% , neomycin 0.5% and acetic acid 2%.

You should always follow the advice of the prescribing doctor when taking any medication. You can also consult the patient leaflet for further instructions and information. A patient leaflet will be included with your order. One can also be viewed on this page.

The following is a summary of how to use Otomize:

  • shake the bottle well before using
  • pump several times until you get a measured spray
  • one measured spray equals one dose.
  • place the nozzle into the affected ear
  • spray one dose, three times daily
  • if you miss a dose, take as soon as you remember
  • continue applying doses until 2 days after symptoms disappear

If there is no improvement after 7 days of use, you should stop the course and consult a doctor. Even if there is an improvement, do not use Otomize for more than 10 days.

Do not use treatment anywhere other than in the ears.

What are the possible side effects?

As with all medications, Otomize can cause side effects.

The following are the most widely reported:

  • paraesthesia (pins and needles)
  • skin reactions (including rash)
  • blurred vision

If you experience any of these, you should seek medical advice. You should also stop the course and visit your doctor if you suffer any reactions not listed above.

It is normal to experience some minor burning and stinging after first applying treatment. This is not usually a cause for concern, and will fade as you adjust to the medicine. However, if it does not fade, stop treatment and consult a doctor.

You should stop treatment and inform your doctor if you suffer an allergic reaction due to the use of this medication.

What precautions should I take?

You should not use this medication if you have:

  • a patent grommet
  • a perforated tympanic membrane (perforated eardrum)

You should also seek the advice of a specialist if you suffer from any other ear (including hearing) conditions.

You should not use this medication for a prolonged time, as long-term use of corticosteroids (dexamethasone) can have adverse effects.

Do not swallow or inhale the spray - only use as advised in the patient leaflet.

If you are pregnant or trying to become pregnant, please inform your doctor before using this treatment.

You should not use this treatment more than three times annually. If you find you are regularly suffering from ear infections, you should consult your doctor as there may be an underlying cause.

Please note, excessive use of this medication, especially on open wounds in the ears, can cause hearing issues. Excessive use of any corticosteroid can also cause eye problems, including central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC).

Can I buy Otomize online?

You can buy Otomize online once you have completed our doctor’s questionnaire. There, you should detail any past and current medical conditions, as well as the treatments you are using. This is to allow our doctors to prescribe safely. Your information will never be viewed by anyone other than our doctors.

Once approved, your treatment will be dispatched for next-day delivery. The entire process takes roughly 24-48 hours.

If your order is not approved, you will be contacted and either asked for additional information, or given the medical reason for why the treatment is unsuitable. You will not be charged.
