Thoroughly clean the ear passage from sulfur with cotton swabs before using drops. This is especially important if the accumulation of sulfur blocks the lumen of the auditory canal. However, remember, you can not enter a cotton bud in the ear canal deeply. First, there is a risk of damage to the tympanic membrane, which the patient may not even notice because of the presence of severe pain. Secondly, with a large accumulation of sulfur, we can move it even deeper, provoking the formation of a cork.
Before inhaling the preparation, warm the solution in the ear. To do this, place the bottle in a container of warm water or hold it for several minutes in hands. Be sure to shake the drops in the form of a suspension so that their consistency becomes uniform. During the injection of the drug a person should lie on his side, turning his head with a sick ear up.
If drops in the ear are to be dripped to a young child under two years old, pull the ear cone back and down. Adult person, on the contrary, should pull his ear up and back. This is due to the peculiarities of the anatomical structure of the ear canal in adults and children. In case of non-compliance with this technique, the ear canal will not be straightened sufficiently, which will prevent the drug from reaching the inflamed area.
Enter the medication into a clean pipette, previously scalded with boiling water, and insert it into the ear canal to a depth of no more than 0.5 cm. Then drip as many drops of the drug as recommended by your doctor or indicated in the instructions.
It is not enough to know how to drip ear drops correctly, you also need to take measures so that the pharmacological agent does not leak out of the ear canal. To do this, press the tragus and hold it in this position for several minutes. From pure cotton wool, make a swab and close it with an ear canal. Only after that the patient can stand up. Wipe the cotton swab from your ear in about 20 minutes - this time is enough to process the passage.
Remember that every drug has a number of contraindications. Therefore, use medications prescribed by your doctor to treat a sick ear.
Cold or, conversely, a hot solution can cause severe pain in the ear, dizziness and loss of consciousness. Therefore, ear drops need to be heated before the introduction only to body temperature.
