Mometamax is the most widely known brand of this generic Otic Suspension which includes a combination of medications with antibacterial (gentamicin sulfate), anti-inflammatory (mometasone), and antifungal (clotrimazole) properties.
Our pharmacist notes that there are plenty of similar options, containing a steroid, antibacterial and antifungal. He says: "Each of these is designed to provide a shot gun approach to dealing with itchy ears. Wet conditions cause fungi to grow, poor immunity allows bacteria to grow so that is why there is an antifungal combined with an antibacterial. Finally a corticosteroid is added to stop inflammation and provide quick symptomatic relief. All of the below do this."
