More information about Otomize Ear Spray

What is Otomize ear spray?

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.

*Other ear infection medications can be applied as drops. A spray is an effective way of ensuring all the affected area is treated.

Please note - orders approved before 4:30 pm Monday to Friday (excluding weekends and bank holidays) will be received the next day.

What does Otomize ear spray do?

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.

Is Otomize ear spray an antibiotic?

Yes, Otomize spray is an antibiotic. However, as mentioned, it also includes other active ingredients that belong to different classes of medicine.

How to use Otomize ear spray?

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

Do not use treatment anywhere other than in the ears.

How long does Otomize take to work?

You should notice an improvement to symptoms relatively soon after using Otomize spray. 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 continuously.

What are the possible side effects of Otomize ear spray?

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 ear spray 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.

Can I buy Otomize ear spray over the counter?

Currently, Otomize is only available with a prescription. You cannot buy it over the counter, as you first need a consultation with a doctor. Fortunately, HealthExpress provides a consultation and prescription service online.

Featured reviews review
  • I suffered with an outer ear infection which turned into a very painful inner ear infection last December. When I spotted the tell take signs of a reoccurrence of an outer ear infection returning I wanted to act fast to prevent the same painful experience. I ordered Otomize and began treatment. Within a week the symptoms had cleared. I carried on as recommended for 3 more days and can happily report no painful ear infection and symptoms have gone. Otomize works and saves time trying to get a telephone GP appointment just to get a prescription.

  • Amazing dual product for the most excruciating earache. After days of trying the GP surgery (and being unable to get through) a friend suggested an online pharmacy..Otomize works really quickly, and the relief was immense.

  • Very fast correspondence between customer and GP, fast delivery. I had an infection in my right ear, I was prescribed antibiotic treatment, but it didn't help much. I still had pain and numbness in my right ear, but these drops are really good. Already on the second day, the pain and numbness disappeared. Thank you Health express.co.uk!

  • I have found this to be the only product which will clear serious ear infections quickly and painlessly. I have been prescribed this over the years to clear infections caused by hearing aids. It has worked every time. Thoroughly recommend.

  • This medication is highly recommended. It clears my dry flaking skin in my ears very quickly. It isn’t oily so doesn’t leak or drip out of the ears, and gives me almost instant relief from pain.

  • I periodically suffer from itchy ears. This product instantly relieves the constant itching and irritation in my ears. I've had it twice off my GP (after much hassle) But this company are brilliant! The product was excellent the same, cost a little more than an NHS prescription, received within a couple of days! Excellent service. Would definitely use them again.

  • I have been prescribed these ear drops before for ear infection & wax build up. Then, as now the drops work quickly, my ears are feeling much better after 3 days, with another 4 days of treatment to go.
