Cerumol is an oily preparation for the treatment of obstructive ear wax. Cerumol loosens the hard wax and makes removal easier.
Chlorbutol 5%w/v, Ortho-dichlorobenzene 14%w/v, para-dichlorobenzene 2% w/v and arachis oil 57% w/v.
Approximately five drops should be instilled into the ear and left for 10-30 minutes according to the degree of hardness of the ear wax. The loosened ear wax may then clear from the ear by itself or be removed by gently syringing. More than one application may be necessary when the ear is severely impacted. In some cases, the instillation of two or three drops of cerumol twice daily for 3 or 4 days may clear the ear and so make syringing easier.
Avoid contact with the eyes and the skin and avoid breathing vapour. If symptoms persist consult your doctor and if irritation occurs discontinue use.
