    My seasonal allergies made my ears itch to the point where I had redness, flakes, and sometimes bleeding. My ENT Dr. prescribed this med and using it as drops in the canal made me dizzy, but swabbing with a q tip dipped in the medication eliminated that problem. Works great! Only need to use it once a week during allergy season.

    What my concern is and I haven't been able to find supporting documentation...but I also suffer from Tinnitus. During a period when my ear eczema wasn't "prevalent," and I wasn't using the drops, my "ringing" seemed to be softer. After a recent flare up and my renewed use of the oil, my Tinnitus returned with a vengeance. Does ANYONE know if tinnitus is a possible ... Show Full Comment
