I seem to get ear infections a lot. My ear have been hurting a lot and I took a bath, so my ears got full of water. I really don't want an ear infection, especially because I have a cold, too. can you use cortisporin ear suspension to prevent an ear infection? They were prescribed to my sister when she had an ear infection. Can you use it to wash out any germs, or things that can give you an infection? Answered by Bruna Warnick 3 months ago.

If you get continuous ear infections and they go untreated without antibiotics the infection can move into the hollow air filled bone behind your ear called the mastoid process. Once this happens it is impossible to remove the infection with medication as the bone does not receive any blood flow. The will have to surgically scrape or remove the bone. It's probably best to get medicine now. Answered by Charmain Lanese 3 months ago.

Do not put water in you ear its very dangerous,leave your ear alone other wise your make it worse , take 2 paracetamols then 4 hours latter take 2 ibuforen, keep doing this every 4 hours and it should clear up, if not go to your GP but you need antibiotics really because even if your infection feels like its gone, its not it will keep comming back, i should know iv suffered from ear infections all my life.

I have a prescription for Amoxicillin and Cortisporin ear drops. I can go to CVS, pay and get $25 gift card.?
Or I can go to Publix and get Amox for free. Or I can go to Target get Amox for $4 and get a $10 gift card. What should I pick? Asked by Blanch Poovey 3 months ago.

Most pharmacies will match other pharmacies prices if you ask. You may be able to get CVS to let you have the amoxicillin for $4 (it's dirt cheap for pharmacies to purchase) and still get the $25 gift card. Answered by Clarice Khu 3 months ago.

Cortisporin Otic Suspension Pregnancy Teratogenic Effects Pregnancy Category C. Corticosteroids have been shown to be teratogenic in rabbits when applied topically at concentrations of 0.5% on days 6 to 18 of gestation and in mice when applied topically at a concentration of 15% on days 10 to 13 of gestation. There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Corticosteroids should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. Medications in Pregnancy: General Principles How safety is determined Medicines that are safe There are a few medications that have been tested in pregnant human subjects and have been shown to be safe. Examples include folic acid and vitamin B6 (both in the B vitamin family) and levothyroxine (Synthroid), which replaces thyroid hormone in people whose glands aren't functioning. These are known as Category A medications. Categories of medications based on safety and risk Most medications, though, have not been studied or shown to be safe to this extent. For these, we are left with this guideline: Medications that are considered safe in pregnancy are those that have been used extensively in humans and don't appear to cause any major birth defects or other problems (they also have been shown not to cause birth defects in animals). The FDA classifies these drugs as Category B. Treatment with Category B medications is considered "probably safe." This group includes ampicillin, acetaminophen (Tylenol is a common brand), ibuprofen (such as Motrin) before third trimester, aspartame, caffeine in moderation, hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ), metoclopramide (Reglan), famotidine (Pepcid), loperamide (Imodium), and insulin. Category C medications are somewhat more likely to have some complications for mother or fetus, or there isn't enough research to draw conclusions about their safety. These medications come with the warning that they should be used only if the potential benefits outweigh the possible risks. These include prochlorperazine (Compazine), Sudafed, fluconazole (Diflucan), and ciprofloxacin (Cipro). Most prescription medications are classified in Category C. Category D medications are those that clearly have some health risks for the fetus, including ethanol (alcohol), lithium, phenytoin (Dilantin), and most chemotherapy agents, which still may be used under certain circumstances. Category X drugs have been shown to cause birth defects and are not to be used in pregnancy under any circumstances. This category includes isotretinoin (Accutane), thalidomide, ribavirin (a treatment for hepatitis C) and diethylstilbestrol (DES). Answered by Shandra Thumm 3 months ago.

Whats a fast and easy way to cure ant bites?
Asked by Lauri Brittingham 3 months ago.

Use cortisporin cream, it will help the the swelling of the bites. Don't scratch them because you could get an infection. If they are stinging and hurting you could use an ice pack. If they are itching and it won't stop after using either of these remedies you can take Benadryl 25 to 50mg depending on your weight but it would be better to take the smallest dosage first and if that doesn't help then take the other 25mg. Answered by Libbie Zavasky 3 months ago.

mix baking soda with a little vinegar. make a paste and put it on the bite. Answered by Gretta Bojorquez 3 months ago.


Why do my ears itch?
I keep my ears clean, and the doctor has never said anything about my ears, she always says they look fine. It has been going on my whole life, but especially for the past 6-7 months. Asked by Gail Gowens 3 months ago.

Ask your doctor to prescribe cortisporin otic suspension. Contains hydrocortisone - helps a lot with the itching. You may have dry skin in your ear canal. I know this has helped a lot of our patients. Answered by Miki Dirose 3 months ago.

try putting a little warm baby oil in them, do one ear at a time, let it sit in there for a few minutes then turn and do other ear, have tissue ready for when it runs out, hope this helps a little good luck Answered by Fermina Pepin 3 months ago.


I have an infection in my right side of my nose help!!!?
i had a fever last week and its slowly going away.I thought i just had a bad case of a stuffy nose but it turns out i have a swollen kinda bump in* my nose.and i tried polysporin recommended by pharmacist ...and my nose is so fragile that it started to bleed.any home remedies to help this weird infection? Asked by Tu Dickhoff 3 months ago.

Your doctor can prescribe you CORTISPORIN ointment .Any time i get crusty nose this ointment helps. Answered by Shay Counter 3 months ago.

Go see your doctor. A staph germ that lives inside the nose can be very serious, if it turns out to be MRSA. Don't fool with it, don't touch it-even though it's probably really bothering you. If your nose becomes more sore, swollen--you have to go to the doctor and have it checked. MRSA is very contagious through hand contact, and it can poison your bloodstream and you could actually die. I don't mean to scare you, but I went through this and it wasn't fun. Only certain antibiotics can kill this staph germ. Answered by Doretta Dubois 3 months ago.
