INDICATIONS

ACUTE OTITIS MEDIA OF VARIOUS ETIOLOGIES

prompt relief of pain and reduction of inflammation in the congestive and serous stages

adjuvant therapy during systemic antibiotic administration for resolution of the infection

Because of the close anatomical relationship of the eustachian tube to the nasal cavity, otitis media is a frequent problem, especially in children in whom the tube is shorter, wider, and more horizontal than in adults.

REMOVAL OF CERUMEN

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

ACUTE OTITIS MEDIA

Instill Auralgan (antipyrine, benzocaine and glycerin dehydrated) permitting the solution to run along the wall of the canal until it is filled. Avoid touching the ear with dropper. Then moisten a cotton pledget with Auralgan (antipyrine, benzocaine and glycerin dehydrated) and insert into meatus. Repeat every one to two hours until pain and congestion are relieved.

REMOVAL OF CERUMEN

Before:  Instill Auralgan (antipyrine, benzocaine and glycerin dehydrated) three times daily for two or three days to help detach cerumen from wall of canal and facilitate removal.
After:   Auralgan (antipyrine, benzocaine and glycerin dehydrated) is useful for drying out the canal or relieving discomfort.

Before and after removal of cerumen, a cotton pledget moistened with Auralgan (antipyrine, benzocaine and glycerin dehydrated) should be inserted into the meatus following instillation.

Note:  Do not rinse dropper after use.

Replace dropper in bottle after each use. Hold dropper assembly by screw cap and, without compressing the rubber bulb, insert into drug container and screw down tightly.

Protect the solution from light and heat, and do not use if it is brown or contains a precipitate.
