Can I use camphor phenique for a inner ear infection don't have the money for a prescription called cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone)

Hello.: Hello. Campho phenique can help with pain of the external ear canal. However if you have a middle or inner ear infection, I am not sure that it would help with those sources of pain. Also, if you have an ear infection, it will not cure it. It also won't help hearing loss. Is there any chance that you have a ruptured ear drum? - because I don't know what would happen if you used this substance and the ear drum was ruptured. ...Read more

Is it saf to use Vicks vaporub durin pregnancy? Made of menthol eucalyptus & camphor. Hubby rubs it on toddler & I can smell it sometimes. Harm my baby?

Doubt harm...but...: I consider this a form of avoidable air pollution that has no value in kids below school age if then. It mimics practices of indigenous cultures that used sap of pine trees to scent the moist steam in sweat lodges. Its effects are more tradition & assumption than real. I find it makes kids cough more. ...Read more

No: It probably not have the desired pain-relieving effect, but it should not do you any harm.

This is very common with new dentures, as they can be challenging to get used to at first. ...Read more

Can I use camphor phinique for an inner ear infection my ear is stopped up I was prescribed cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) and amoxivillin bunt can't afford them

Confusing statement: Amoxicillin is an old antibiotic and generally very cheep. You should look into a discount card you can find most places. It would be your best chance to cure a middle ear infection of the items listed. Putting camphophonique in your canal may give you something to do, but it wouldn't cure a middle ear infection. You may self heal in 6-8 weeks like they did before antibiotics. ...Read more
