Otomize Ear Spray



For the treatment of otitis externa.

SKU: 0215533 Categories: ,


Type of medicine Anti-inflammatory and anti-infective ear spray
Used for Inflammation and infection of the outer parts of the ear (otitis externa)
Also called Otomize®
Available as Ear spray

Otitis externa is a term used for inflammation in the ear when it is confined to the ear canal and does not go further than the eardrum. It is usually due to an infection. If you get things like water, shampoo or soap in an ear then it can cause itching. If you then scratch or poke your ear, this can damage the skin in the ear canal and cause inflammation. The inflamed skin can then quickly become infected.

The brand name for dexamethasone with antibacterial ear spray is Otomize®. It contains several ingredients – dexamethasone, neomycin and acetic acid. Together, these ingredients relieve inflammation, infection, itching and pain. Otomize® spray is only available on prescription. It can be prescribed for adults and for children over 2 years of age.

Uses / Instructions

  • Before you use the spray for the first time, shake the container gently and then press the pump down a number of times until you see a fine spray. Make sure that the nozzle is not directed at anyone and try not to inhale the spray as you do this.
  • Use one spray three times a day into the affected ear. To do this, place the tip of the nozzle into your ear and press the pump down once. You should continue to use the spray for two days after your symptoms have gone. Do not use the spray for longer than seven days in total, unless your doctor has told you otherwise.
  • If you forget to use the spray, don’t worry, use it as soon as you remember and then go on as before.
  • If you feel there is no improvement in your symptoms after you have used the spray for a week, stop using it and make another appointment to see your doctor.


To make sure that this is the right treatment for you, before you start using the spray please make sure that your doctor/prescriber knows:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you have a perforated eardrum, or if you have a grommet fitted in your ear.
  • If you have ever had an allergic reaction to a medicine.

Side Effects

  • You may get a slight feeling of burning or stinging when you first start using the spray. This is usually mild and soon passes.
  • If you get a rash or if you notice any other symptoms which you think may be due to the spray, please ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
  • Occasionally people can have a mild allergic reaction to the preservative in the spray.
