Before using Chloroxylenol/Hydrocortisone/Pramoxine Solution:

Some medical conditions may interact with Chloroxylenol/Hydrocortisone/Pramoxine Solution. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you:

  • if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding
  • if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement
  • if you have allergies to medicines, foods, or other substances

Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with Chloroxylenol/Hydrocortisone/Pramoxine Solution. Because little, if any, of Chloroxylenol/Hydrocortisone/Pramoxine Solution is absorbed into the blood, the risk of it interacting with another medicine is low.

Ask your health care provider if Chloroxylenol/Hydrocortisone/Pramoxine Solution may interact with other medicines that you take. Check with your health care provider before you start, stop, or change the dose of any medicine.

How to use Chloroxylenol/Hydrocortisone/Pramoxine Solution:

Use Chloroxylenol/Hydrocortisone/Pramoxine Solution as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.

  • Chloroxylenol/Hydrocortisone/Pramoxine Solution is only for the ear. Do not get it in your eyes, nose, or mouth. If you get Chloroxylenol/Hydrocortisone/Pramoxine Solution in the eyes, flush thoroughly with cool water.
  • Thoroughly clean and dry the outer ear before using Chloroxylenol/Hydrocortisone/Pramoxine Solution.
  • Lie down or tilt your head so that the affected ear faces up. For adults, gently pull the earlobe up and back to straighten the ear canal. For children, gently pull the earlobe down and back to straighten the ear canal. Drop the medicine into the ear canal. Keep the ear facing up for 5 minutes so the medicine can run to the bottom of the ear canal. A clean cotton plug may be gently inserted into the ear canal to prevent medicine from leaking out.
  • To prevent germs from getting into your medicine, do not touch the applicator to any surface, including the ear. Keep the container tightly closed.
  • Wash your hands immediately after using Chloroxylenol/Hydrocortisone/Pramoxine Solution.
  • If you miss a dose of Chloroxylenol/Hydrocortisone/Pramoxine Solution, use it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not use 2 doses at once.

Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Chloroxylenol/Hydrocortisone/Pramoxine Solution.
