This product is used to relieve pain, stuffiness, and swelling caused by a middle ear infection (acute otitis media). It is also used to help remove earwax.

Benzocaine is a topical anesthetic that helps to numb the pain. Aluminum acetate helps to reduce swelling and itching.How to use Treagan Otic otic
Use this medication exactly as directed by your doctor.
Do not use in the eye.
An antibiotic medication may sometimes be prescribed along with this medication if you have a bacteria infection.
To make sure that the right amount of medication is given, and to avoid touching the ear with the dropper, have another person insert the drops if possible. To lower the risk of dizziness, hold the container in your hand for a few minutes to warm it. To apply ear drops, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your ear or any other surface. Lie on your side or tilt the affected ear upward. Hold the dropper directly over the ear, and place the prescribed number of drops into the ear canal. To help the drops roll into the ear of an adult, hold the earlobe up and back. In children, hold the earlobe down and back. Keep the head tilted for about 2 minutes, or insert a soft cotton plug if so directed. Your doctor may tell you to moisten the cotton plug with this medication. Repeat for the other ear if so directed. Do not rinse the dropper. Replace the cap after use.
If you are using this medication to help remove earwax, gently rinsing the ear with warm water using a soft rubber bulb after 2 to 3 days of treatment may help remove any remaining earwax. Consult your doctor or pharmacist about safely using an ear bulb.
Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens.
