I have been using this product for over 25 years to prevent wax build-up in my ears. I use it after every shower and after swimming. Elocon 0.1 was prescribed by my ear doctor and has cut my ear cleaning visit from one year to over three years.

Elocon .1% was prescribed by my ENT for itching deep inside by ear due to sinus/allergy. Great relief. I saturate a QTip or you can use 1 drop.
