Boric acid is used to treat an outer ear infection (external otitis). It works by stopping the growth of bacteria and fungus. Treating the infection reduces pain and swelling in the ear.
Boric Acid Ear Drops are a popular treatment for ear infections and inflammation. They contain boric acid, an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory agent, which helps eliminate bacteria and soothe irritated ears. To treat ear problems, simply instill the drops into the affected ear as directed by a healthcare professional or package instructions. It is essential to use the drops only as prescribed and never use them on open wounds or sensitive areas of the skin.
