Composition

Each 10 ml contains: 300 mg Antipyrine, 100 mg Benzocaine, Glycerin to 10 ml

Properties

Otosept combines the water-absorbing property of Glycerin with the analgesic and local anaesthetic actions of Antipyrine and Benzocaine to relieve pressure, reduce inflammation and congestion, and alleviate pain and discomfort in acute otitis media when the tympanic membrane is intact. Antipyrine inhibits the formation of prostaglandins which sensitize pain receptors to painful stimuli.

Benzocaine provides a rapid symptomatic relief from pain through the reversible loss of sensation by preventing the conduction of sensory nerve impulses.

Glycerin produces a reduction of the inner pressure in the tympanic cavity of the ear by osmosis. This results in unswelling of the tympanic membrane and alleviation of pain. Glycerin also softens wax and has a weak antimicrobial action.

Otosept does not mask or distort the signs of the otic inflammatory picture.

Contra-indications

  • Hypersensitivity to any of the components.
  • The presence of perforated tympanic membrane or discharge.

Presentation
