Otinova® is a non-prescription astringent, antibacterial and antifungal solution that does not contain antibiotics or steroids. Otinova® can therefore often be used instead of prescription ear preparations for the treatment of ear canal inflammation.
Acetic acid (2% or 4%) and alsol solution / spirits are sometimes used in ear canal inflammation. However, none of these solutions are registered with the Swedish Medicines Agency for this indication. Otinova® contains 8% acetic acid and approximately 20 times more aluminum salts compared to other sole solution / spirits.
