Avatar m tn treated with CiproDex otic solution,no response, another round of CiproDex this time combined with Azithromycin. Left eyelid started twitching few days after ear infection/CiproDex treatment. Gradually, I started having tingling in my legs. Also had three panic attacks with heart beat +180 bpm. diagnosed with borderline hyperthyroidism (TSH 0.32 and FT4 24) and all symptoms were attributed to thyroid problem. The thyroid is back to normal now without any thyroid meds.
Avatar m tn On Monday morning I woke with an ear infection. I went to the doctor right away and was given Otic Edge, told to continue an antibiotic I was already on, to call if it wasn't felling better in a couple of days, and to schedule a recheck for a week later. Thursday, my ear still felt plugged, I was getting sharp pains, and ringing so I went back to the doctor. He said that there is alot of drainage in there and it kinda looked like swimmer's ear.
1899725 tn?1321500363 My 8 year son has had an ear infection for 5 weeks now. We've gone through a course of Ciprodex otic drops and a course of Neomycin/Polymyxin B ear drops. He's also been on Keflex and Augmentin. The doctor keeps telling me it's "swimmer's ear" or "just an ear infection" and should go away soon. 5 weeks of dealing with my child hurting is not soon enough. I'm actually a pediatic RN and know that this is not normal.

Avatar n tn The vet said that he has wax and debris in his ear canal and if it is not treated, his ear drum could rupture, causing hearing loss and further infection. Is this truly necessary? Is this something we could treat at home with a solution of peroxide or something? I just don't want to pay this much for something that is not necessary. On the other hand, we love our dog so much and I certainly dont want him to become deaf or experience any hearing loss. Can you help?
Avatar n tn My dog has allergies, which we are managing pretty well. However, his ear itch & he scratches them so hard, I'm afraid he'll hurt himself. His ears are not red or dirty, but damp inside. Oti cleanse/epi otic don't help. I'm thinking his ears are stuffy & he needs a decongestant. What would you recommend?
Avatar f tn Did you mean bac water or did you really use sterile water? Sterile water can sting in injections. Bac water should not. If you did use bac water, I'm at a loss sorry. When I take mine out of the fridge, I fill the syringe and then run the syringe under really warm water to warm it up to my body temp so it does not hurt. Other than that I don't know what to tell you.
1621608 tn?1339519872 If not, than it may be unlikely that the maggots ate through his ear drum. It would not be safe to use any Otic solution if the ear drum is ruptured. In this case please just continue to clean the ear daily. If there are any maggots left it would be best to use Capstar oral medication (or the equivalent) to eliminate them. The medication that you gave is known as Clavamox in the US.
757137 tn?1347196453 If the nebulization is simply to moisturize the nasal passages, an isotonic saline is preferable, as there is no ‘give’ and ‘take’ of fluid. And an isotonic solution is preferable to sterile water because the osmolality is more controlled. Hope I did not confuse you. Take Care. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn s a solution but please try to clean your nose with some saline solution (use sterile water if you make it yourself). You could also use a neti pot (look it up online), but ALWAYS use sterile water!! Good luck I pray for us all.
Avatar n tn Any bacteria in the fluid will be aerosolized and end up in the lung. Distilled sterile water would be the best choice.
Avatar n tn Epi-Otic Ear Cleanser ($12.95 from Amazon) for an initial cleanse, the finish off with Mometamax Otic Suspension ($26.99 from 1-800-PetMeds). You'll need an Rx from your vet for the Momentamax, but it's the best thing since sliced bread and will knock out a yeast infection quicker than you can say M-O-M-E-N-T-A-M-A-X. My English Mastiff is prone to them, and this combination has always worked well for her.
Avatar n tn This could mean there is some infection of the eye, or irritation going on. However, with that the discharge would usually be yellow-ish or blood stained. But mucus could be formed in such large quantities if there was constant irritation going on, or even an allergy. Is it dusty where you live? Examine your dog's eyes. If possible with a magnifying glass. Get someone to hold her head still while you do this.
Avatar n tn Hydrogen peroxide should not be used near the eyes. The bubbling action looks good but it's also very irritating to the tissues. Plain water is fine but so is a sterile eye wash solution. You can find that at the local drug store with the other eye/contact lens goodies. Make sure it has no other chemicals in it. Usually it's just a sterile saline solution and very mild. It's just a couple dollars. If it costs too much then you know it has something else in there.
Avatar m tn I have had for the last 5 months, fluid leaking from ear, A thick yellow sometimes clear puss like fluid, Cause? Infection, I was prescribed ciprodex a week ago, Im suppose to take it for 14 days and then get surgery to patch a hole in my left ear. The fluid is still leaking, all the time, How can the medication work if my ears wont stay dry? The fluid is probably blocking the medication from actually working.
600619 tn?1219707750 Rubbing alcohol might be too harsh.Have you tried epi-otic? I got some from the vet and it's about 12 bucks. It helps with the crud in their ears. If you follow the directions, it will actually let the stuff slough out when they shake their heads, so it basically keeps working even after you use it. I use it once a week on all 3 of my dogs. One of my dogs got a horrible yeast infection in one ear and after he finished the meds, the epi-otic has really kept his ears healthy.
Avatar f tn Does Tobramycin and Dexamethasone Ophthalmic Suspension USP, 0.3%/0.1% (sterile) treat Corneal Ulcer?
Avatar f tn I make the MSM drops from 1/2 tsp. pure MSM powdwr, 1 oz sterile water and 1 oz saline solution. You can use just sterile water, but I find it a little harsh. If you want to determine the efficacy of the treatment, have your eyes tested before you begin, and then after six months and after one year. That is what I did. The improvement was dramatic, and incontrovertible.
Avatar f tn I just had tubes put in both ears 6 days ago. I got the flu and had both ears infected. The pressure and pain is gone, but now I'm talks by ina tunnel and my hearing is diminished. I think I'm draining, because when I use my ciprodex drops...I swear I taste it in the back of my throat. How lucky big is this gonna last? Will my hearing go back to normal? Will the tunnel in my head stop?
Avatar f tn My husband came home one night and said that he had gone to the doctor and they told him he was sterile but that there is still hope he said something about vitamins he can take and i was wondering if this is true and if so what can he take and if not what are our other options?
