Image: Can I get Clotrimazole ear drops without alcohol?

Hello doctor,

Can I get Clotrimazole ear drops without alcohol? My doctor prescribed me Canesten ear drops since he suspects a fungal infection, but the drops hurt like hell since they contain alcohol. Do you think there is another brand that can be used with perforated ear drum?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • I suggest you Candid ear drops (Clotrimazole), which has Lignocaine combination and that reduces the pain. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take medicine with consent.

Thank you doctor,

I am so pleased for your suggestion.
