Not needed: In general, fluid behind the ear drum by itself doesn't need an "antiseptic" or antibiotic. If the fluid is infected that is a different story and antibiotics can be helpful.

Clean and dry: Assuming that the surgical procedure was not a contaminated procedure or drainage of an infected wound, the incision would have been closed.

Savlon cleansing wipes with antiseptic. These should not be used on wounds. I cleaned a small cut with one without realising. Is this dangerous?
