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