Can you treat otitis externa with oral antibiotics?

When oral antibiotics were prescribed, Amoxicillin and Co-amoxiclav (amoxicillin/clavulanic acid) were consistently chosen by GPs to treat otitis externa. The use of oral antibiotics as monotherapy may be an estimate of the rate of cases of otitis externa that were suboptimally managed as the inferred omission of topical antibiotics highlights a potential unawareness among prescribers that topical therapy is the mainstay of treatment.

How can otitis externa be prevented?

PreventionOtitis externa after swimming can be prevented by thorough drying of the ear canal. • Prompt treatment of acute otorrhea in patients with tympanostomy tubes with antibiotic-glucocorticoid drops can prevent secondary otitis externa.
