Comment:
I have psoriasis on my ears, so occasionally I will get a gummed up ear from debris and/or cream treatments. The first two times I got this, I was put on Ciprodex. They were awful experiences.

I was given this drug for outer ear inflammation and infection. I'm not sure now if I really had either. I put drops in my ear per instructions for 8 days.

After an exam, he said it was infected and prescribed one week of Ciprodex drops and if it did not get better, to return. After the first day of drops (twice a day)I started losing my hearing in the right ear and could not get the hearing aid in the ear without a lot of trouble and pain. By the third day, I could not hear at all out of my right ear and it "popped" and felt stopped up ... Show Full Comment
