    DefaultClean Ears with Preparation H Medicated Wipes REally? Yes.

    DogAware.com Health: Ear Infections in Dogs

    LOL, yep, that's what this article says you can use. Also ladies feminine yeast products. I'm sure this topic has been done to death but I've never, ever heard anyone say they use Preparation H before. There are several recipes and products listed, if anyone uses any and would like to comment I'm sure it would be helpful to hear real life experiences. Interestingly the gentian violet I've heard mentionned so often is ototoxic and very scary to me.

    First, the vet needs to diagnose what it is you are dealing with in the ears. If it is indeed yeast, then yes you can use Monistat in the ears. My vet recommends this but only after he's seen the debris under the microscope to determine what it is. I've not used Prep H and not sure I'd be comfortable with it.

    Yes, exactly what the article says.

    Preparation H. Does anyone remember when people were using it on their faces for wrinkles? I thought the stuff was meant for hemorrhoids.

    It doesn't work for wrinkles. At least not the stuff sold in the US. The stuff in Canada has an ingredient in it that the US does not. Or at last it used to.

    I remember Prep H was supposed to be something models used for baggy eyes. I would think that it would work for that - - - it just shrinks swollen tissues.
