Cipro HC Otc
People who have "swimmer's ear," known medically as acute otitis externa, are often prescribed Cipro® HC (ciprofloxacin/hydrocortisone). This is an otic medication, which means it is designed and approved for use in the ear. Never apply this drug to the eyes, nose, or mouth. It comes in the form of an ear drop and is typically used twice a day for seven days.
