Otomax Ointment 14ml
Otomax is used to treat acute and chronic otitis with this effective combination steroid, antibacterial, and antifungal ointment. Active ingredients are betamethasone valerate, gentamicin sulfate, and clotrimazole, which work together to combat painful infections of the ear. Antibiotic ear medications should be used only after a diagnosis of a bacterial infection is made by your veterinarian. The ear should always be clean and dry before applying ear medications. Follow treatment instructions carefully, since incorrect treatment can result in recurring infections and damage to the ear.
Active constituents: Gentamicin Sulfate equivalent to 3409iu Gentamicin Base, Betamethasone Valerate equivalent to 1.14mg Betamethasone, and 11.36mg Clotrimazole per ml
What are the side effects
Side effects associated with this medication are related to the individual ingredients. Gentamicin, while absorbed poorly from the skin, when applied topically for prolonged periods of time to large wounds, burns, or denuded skin has a potential for reversible and irreversible ear and kidney toxicity. Side effects following the use of injected or oral corticosteroids include weight loss, loss of appetite, increased thirst and urination. Vomiting and diarrhea have also been observed. Betamethasone is a corticosteroid but is applied topically. Redness of the skin, stinging, blistering, peeling, fluid retention, itching, hives and general irritation of the skin have been observed occasionally in humans following the use of clotrimazole.
