If taking Cipro (ciprofloxacin) orally/in a pill form causes shortness of breath, would I also risk having an allergic reaction if I use the Cipro (ciprofloxacin) ear drops?
Have had sores in ears, very painful & sometimes bleeding. Er doc put me on cipro (ciprofloxacin) and ear drops. Left is better but right ear is worse & has 2 sores?
Ear infection 3wks. Cipro (cipro (ciprofloxacin)floxacin) ear drops first, oral cipro (ciprofloxacin) second for 10 days. Eardrum ruptured, black/green/white pus coming from ear.When will it go away?

If there is no perforation, it is possible that this may be an allergic reaction. We need to know why you are using the ear drops and what the diagnosis has been given to you for this treatment. ...Read more

Even if directly applied to the mouth, it is a very low dose and will not cause any harmful problems. ...Read more
