He can so long as he does not have myringotomy tubes (ear tubes, ear grommets) in place. This is not a medication that should be allowed to go past the ear drum (like through an ear tube). If it only remains in the ear canal it is safe to use.I hope that answers your question! If I've left anything unanswered please reply to me!
