Impetigo contagiosum? Otitis externa... Management.. antibiotic ear drops – this can treat an underlying bacterial infection. corticosteroid ear drops – this can help to reduce swelling. antifungal ear drops – this can treat an underlying fungal infection. acidic ear drops – this can help kill bacteria.
