For several years i have had problems with both my ears. For a year or more i was being treated by my local GP and had various types of creams, drops, and sprays. None of these treatments made any difference to my problem. After2/3 visits to RPH where i was eventually referred to the ENT clinic. My first visit was in March this year when i was seen by a doctor. By this time i had developed a severe ear infection. The doctor cleared the infection by suction and then sprayed antibiotics straight into the canal. The doctor then gave me a cream called Betamethasone Valerate. Within a few days the ear infection and external (scabbing) had cleared up. For the first time in years my ear problems had gone. I went again to the ENT clinic and again saw the doctor who was pleased at the results of the treatment. I would like to place on record the way my problem was resolved by this doctor after having lived with my ear problems for so long.
