Cerumol Ear Drops are an oily preparation for the treatment of obstructive ear wax. Cerumol loosens the hard wax and makes removal easier.
Avoid contact with eyes and skin, avoid breathing vapour.
Discontinue use if irritation occurs.
Chlorbutol 5% w/v,
Ortho-dichlorobenzene 14% w/v,
Para-dichlorobenzene 2% w/v,
Arachis Oil 57% w/v.
Approximately 5 drops should be instilled into the ear and left for 10-30 minutes according to the degree of hardness of the ear wax.
Should the Cerumol tend to run out, a small plug of cotton wool smeared with Cerumol can be applied. The loosened ear wax may then clear from the ear by itself or be removed by gently syringing. More than one application may be necessary when the ear is severely impacted.
In some cases the instillation of two or three ddrops of Cerumol twice daily for three or four days may clear the ear and so make syringing unnecessary.
