Remove cerumen before instillation by irrigation, not with cotton-tipped swabs. The drops must be at room temperature; cold drops may cause dizziness or other discomfort. Hold the pinna of the ear up and back when giving eardrops to adults or children older than 3 years of age. A small cotton ball may be inserted gently into the ear canal to keep the drug in place, but do not force or jam it into the ear canal. Gentle massage to the tragus area of the ear (not the earlobe) may also help to increase coverage of the medication after it is given.
