Ear Drop Medication
Not immediate: Ofloxacin ear drop is an antibacterial medication. You will not see/feel immediate relief in your ear symptoms when you begin to use it. If you are looking for pain relief, an otc pain reliever will likely work faster.

I have hearing problem in my left ear. My age is 45. I took soliwax ear drop but yet the hearing problem is their.
How long?: Ear wax can certainly be the cause of sudden hearing loss but it could also be from fluid behind the drum or sudden injury to the nerve for hearing. Sudden hearing loss needs immediate attention with referral to ENT if there is fluid behind the drum as in rare cases it may be from tumors at the eustachian opening. Sudden nerve loss is treated with steroids. Unilateral hearing loss must be seen. ...Read more

If debris is present in the ear canal even after using the ear drops, can the infection recur when cessation of medication?
Don'tMicroDitchDig: It's possible, but I wouldn't go batty trying to dig it out. If, after a few showers, you think there's still some in there and that bothers you, you really should have someone look at it again with the proper equipment, like, say....a doctor or nurse or PA-and not you, or your car mechanic. Usually, whatever debris is left has been sterilized by the drops but, it could set-up another infection. ...Read more
