Exterol Ear Drops contain the active ingredient urea hydrogen peroxide (5%) to create an ear drop solution that quickly works by softening hardened ear wax and breaking down into small flakes.
Exterol makes the treatment process quick and simple, as it allows ear wax to be released from the ear. It may also help to relieve the pain and discomfort that is caused by earwax buildup, by enabling you to break down and remove ear wax.
Like all medicines, Exterol can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.
• A temporary mild bubbling sensation in the ear can occur (due to the release of oxygen as the drops break down the ear wax).
• The ear drops can make the symptoms of excessive ear wax worse, including some discomfort, irritation or pain, loss of hearing, dizziness and tinnitus (ringing sound in the ear).
• Very rarely, an unpleasant taste has been reported. Stop using the ear drops immediately if this happens
and tell your doctor.
