Pharmacy/cortisporing otic drip

All that is provided is correct with the addition of when the solution or suspension should be used. It is necessary to ask the patient or prescribing physician of the tympanic membrane of the patient is perforated;  if so, the suspension should be used as the higher pH will cause less pain and irritation. If the tympanic membrane is not perforated, then the more acidic solution would suffice

Otic suspensions or opthalmic solutions are used when the integrity of the tympanic membrane is in question.  The acidity of Otic solutions tends to burn whereas the suspensions do not.
