Uses

This medication is used to treat infections of the external ear (not including the ear canal). It reduces the swelling, numbs the pain, and kills the germs common in these types of infections.

How to use Cortamox Lotion

For external use only. Apply to affected areas as directed by your doctor. Avoid contact with the eyes.

This medication is not intended for use within the ear (especially if the eardrum is punctured). If your infection also includes your inner ear, then another medication is needed to treat that condition. Consult your doctor for more instructions.

Do not cover the area with plastic or waterproof bandages unless directed to do so by your doctor.

Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. Remember to use it at the same time(s) each day. Continue to use this medication until the full-prescribed amount is finished even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping this medication too early may allow bacteria to continue to grow, which may result in a relapse of the infection.
