What is Otex Express

Otex ear drops are among the best to help with ear blockage. Their active ingredient is hydrogen peroxide.

How does Otex Express work?

Earwax is naturally produced by the body to help protect the ear and drum. Occasionally the glands that produce ear wax may go into overdrive. The excess wax can build up and dry out. This can lead to the pain, discomfort and hearing issues. 

Hardened wax can be difficult to remove. Otex Express, therefore, helps to soften this hard wax and ease its removal from the ears. The active ingredient – urea hydrogen peroxide – works by releasing the oxygen that breaks up the hardened wax. Antiseptic properties also help prevent the development of infection.

How should I apply Otex Express?

To apply Otex Express, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the bottle.

  2. Tilt your head onto the side. 

  3. Squeeze up to 5 drops into the ear.

  4. Keep your head in position and leave for a few minutes.

  5. Wipe away any remaining fluid with a tissue.

  6. Repeat for your other ear if required.

  7. Wash hands after use.

Repeat the steps above once or twice a day as necessary to soften the wax.

After 3-4 days, you should notice an improvement and reduction in ear discomfort.

What are the side effects of Otex Express?

The most common side effects of Otex Express are:

  • Temporary mild bubbling sensation in the ear. This is caused by the bubbles of oxygen escaping as the drops react with the ear wax.

  • The drops can, in some cases, make existing excessive ear wax symptoms worse, including discomfort, irritation or pain, loss of hearing, dizziness, and tinnitus.

  • Very rarely, some patients have detected an unpleasant taste. If this happens, stop using the drops and contact your doctor.

If you suffer severe reactions with this medication, please seek immediate medical attention.

 

When shouldn’t I apply Otex Express?

Otex Express should not be used in the following situations:

  • if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to any of the ingredients of Otex Express 

  • if you have a history of ear problems unless used under the close supervision of your doctor, nurse or pharmacist. 

  • if you are also putting anything else in the ear (such as other ear drops or a hearing aid). 

  •  if your ear drum is (or has been) damaged. 

  • if you suffer from dizziness. 

  • if there is anything else wrong with your ear - such as pain, swelling, discharge, infection or tinnitus (ringing sounds in the ear). 

  • if you have tried to remove the ear wax using fingernails, cotton buds or other implements. (This is because you might have damaged the delicate inner lining of the ear, leading to swelling or infection.) This could make it painful to use the ear drops. 

  • if you have had your ear syringed in the last 2 to 3 days – this could also make it painful to use the eardrops.

Otex Express may be used during pregnancy and breast-feeding. The ingredients have been in widespread use in this and similar preparations for many years, without reports of problems. However, safety trials have not been conducted.
