ear drop is CLOTRIMAZOLE 2 x a DAY. USING FOUR DAYS.


EYES ARE INFLAMED, LIDS SWOLLEN AND SOME CLEAR TEAR LIQUID is passing out.


Appears ears are affecting the eustachian passage because of new sneezing episodes following the ear drops. i am 82 years old and take daily synthroid / meloxicam for osteo arth-also liquid ZYRTEC as needed.

the information has been sent-- 3:15 central time.

Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 1 year ago.
Well, you have given me poor feedback, when all have done is ask you for more information and then spend some time, while waiting for your reply, playing with my 2 month old grand daughter who came by for a visit.....

Not very nice.


I am sorry to see that you have given me a poor rating for the assistance I have provided. Ratings do not apply to system malfunctions...only to the quality of the expert.
I would ask that you give me a chance to provide you with further data so that you have the information you need to address your issue.
I would appreciate a good or excellent rating and will work hard to obtain it if given the chance.
Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


the question is: are you aware of any allergic reaction to the eyes when anti fungal drops are put into the ear twice a day?.


The med is CLOTRIMAZOLE. No diagnosis is required. Just wanted to know about the ingredients in that med when used in the ear. My choice will be to go to a natural solution. Like vinegar/alcohol or possibly hydrogen peroxide. My usual mode is to err on the side of caution. Will send a message to the company about the so called remedy. In this era of medical specialists, there are many flaws like failing to connect the dots.

Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 1 year ago.
Well, I'm sorry you continue to give me poor feedback. I will be happy to answer your question if you reverse your rating to positive. Otherwise, I will opt out and another expert can help you.

I look forward to your response.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

what a strange but profitable way of doing business. the question is simple ! after the symptoms are decreasing, I will post a negative review. no wonder people turn to alternative medicine.

Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 1 year ago.
Sorry you feel that way.
Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 1 year ago.
Would you like to continue?

You make me smile.
