(and dosage form)
CERUMOL (Ear Drops)
Each 100 mL contains:
Arachis oil 57 g
Paradichlorobenzene 2 g
Chlorbutol 5 g
A 16.2 Aural Medicines, ear drops.
Loosening of hard or soft wax plug and subsequent removal.
Occlusion or partial occlusion of external auditory meatus by either a collection of soft wax or a harder wax plug.
Otitis externa, seborrhoeic dermatitis and eczema affecting the external ear.
DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Approximately five drops should be instilled into the ear with the head inclined or, better still, with the patient lying down. Should the CERUMOL tend to run out when the head is held up, a small plug of cotton wool soaked in CERUMOL, or smeared with petroleum jelly, could then be applied. Ten to thirty minutes later the softened and disimpacted Cerumen can be simply removed by using a probe tipped with cotton wool or by gentle syringing.
Alternatively, the patient can himself instill the drops (as described above) two or three times a day for a few days in order to loosen the wax. In many cases this procedure is sufficient as frequently the wax will run out of its own accord making further attendance at the surgery unnecessary.
SIDE-EFFECTS AND SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS
Local irritation. Do not apply if the ear drum is perforated. Avoid contact with the eyes.
