Overview

NOTE: After selecting this product, you will need to complete a short assessment, so we can make sure this medication is suitable for you.

What Is Otomize Ear Spray?

Otomize is a prescription-only medicated ear spray used to treat outer ear infections, including swimmer's ear (Otitis Externa).

Its triple-action formula reduces swelling with dexamethasone, fights bacteria with neomycin sulfate, and creates an acidic environment with acetic acid to stop bacterial growth, while also relieving inflammation, itching, and pain.

Why Prescribed Otomize Ear Spray?

Doctors prescribe Otomize ear calm spray for mild to moderate outer ear infections. It helps reduce inflammation in the ear often caused by damage, irritation, or infection of the skin inside the ear canal. It's used for:

  • Bacterial ear infections
  • Inflammation of the ear
  • Itching and irritation in the ear canal

Remember, ear infections can be confusing for allergies or other symptoms. Suppose you may have a perforated eardrum or a blocked ear. In these cases, you cannot use Otomize.

How Does Otomize ear spray Work?

Otomize contains three active ingredients and works in 3 way:

Dexamethasone: It is a  topical corticosteroid medicine works to reduce inflammation.

Neomycin Sulfate: A broad-spectrum antibiotic that eliminates many different types of bacteria causing the infection. Neomycin sulfate helps your body heal and get rid of the infection.


Acetic Acid: Acts like a party pooper for bacteria. It creates an acidic environment in your ear canal, making it difficult for bacteria to grow and survive, thus preventing the infection from worsening.

Working Together for Faster Recovery:

By working together, this powerful trio in Otomize treats swimmer's ear on multiple fronts:

  • Reducing pain and swelling (Dexamethasone the calmer)
  • Eliminating bacteria causing the infection (Neomycin Sulfate the fighter)
  • Stopping bacterial growth (Acetic Acid the disruption agent)

This combined attack helps you feel better faster and promotes a quicker recovery from swimmer's ear.

About Otitis externa

Swimmer's ear, or otitis externa, can be really uncomfortable, painful condition and cause a lot of unpleasant feelings in your ear.

Swimmer's ear, commonly affects children and swimmers, but it doesn't transmit from one person to another.

It's basically redness, swelling, irritation, or infection in your outer ear canal (tube that goes from the opening of the ear to the eardrum).

These infections happen when something like soap, insects, or water makes the ear canal vulnerable to inflammation from itching, poking, and scratching.

Swimming in dirty water is a common cause of swimmer's ear (otitis externa). Other causes may include being in warm, humid environments, cleaning or scratching the ear canal with fingers or objects, ear canal injuries, dry skin in the ear canal, or excess earwax.

Otomize vs EarCalm

Both Otomize and EarCalm effectively treat external ear infections by reducing pain and swelling. While EarCalm contains only acetic acid and is suitable for mild cases, Otomize, with three active ingredients, is effective for mild to moderate ear infections.

Side effects differ slightly, with EarCalm potentially causing ear canal irritation, and Otomize may lead to temporary stinging or burning, irritation, or rash.

In short:

  • Otomize is a stronger, prescription option with multiple ingredients for established bacterial infections.
  • EarCalm is a milder, over-the-counter option with one ingredient, suitable for mild cases or prevention.
