The distribution of ear drops in normal ears is variable. A new product Otomize (Stafford-Miller) containing dexamethasone and neomycin has a non-aerosol spray mist delivery system. This has been applied to normal ears and found to be superior in its distribution to generally available ear drops previously assessed.
