Anauran® Ear Drops, 25 ml (Lidocaine + Neomycin + Polymyxin B)
Anauran® owes its therapeutic activity to its three active ingredients with antibiotic and anesthetic action, effective against ear canal infections. The solution in ear drops in fact allows the active ingredients to reach the ear canal while significantly reducing the systemic absorption of the drug and thus limiting the onset of potential side effects.

Neomycin sulfate is a broad-spectrum aminoglycoside antibiotic that acts bactericidal against gram-positive (Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus pneumoniae) and gram-negative (Escherichia coli, Shigella dysenteria spp., Shigella flexneri spp., Shigella boydii spp., Shigella spp., Shigella boydii spp., Shigella spp. .) microorganisms; against Streptococcus spp. – inactive.
Polymyxin B is a polypeptide antibiotic. Active against gram-negative microorganisms: Escherichia coli, Shigella dysenteria spp., Shigella flexneri spp., Shigella boydii spp., Shigella sonnei spp., Salmonella typhi and Salmonella paratyphi; Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Not active against Proteus spp., Mycobacterium spp., Gram-positive cocci, fungi. It has a weak local irritating effect.
Lidocaine is a local anesthetic that quickly relieves pain and itching.
The local anesthetic effect is due to the blockade of voltage-dependent Na + -channels, which prevents the generation of impulses in the endings of the sensory nerves and the conduction of pain impulses along the nerve fibers.
