Eosera intros Ear Pain MD for adults, children

09/10/2018
Ear care company Eosera is bringing two new products to market. The company recently announced the launch of Ear Pain MD and Ear Pain MD for Kids, both meant to topically relieve ear pain, a symptom commonly associated with ear infections.

"Ear Pain MD is different than other over-the-counter pain relievers because it is applied topically as opposed to orally. This allows the product to work faster and get to the actual site of the pain immediately,” said Eosera chief scientific officer and co-founder Joe Griffin. “It is always recommended to talk with your doctor first before using any product in the ear.”

Eosera noted that Ear Pain MD works by desensitizing aggravated nerves, providing numbing relief, but is not intended to address infection. It uses the maximum-strength relief without a prescription, the company said, noting that roughly 3 million patients seek ear infection treatment per year, and 83% of children experience the condition before their third birthday.

"The current standard of care for an ear infection diagnosis includes doctors typically prescribing antibiotics to treat the infection, and recommending oral pain relievers such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen, which can take up to an hour to work,” Eosera CEO and co-founder Elyse Dickerson said. “Our goal with the launch of Ear Pain MD is to provide more rapid pain relief that may be associated with ear infections and other ear-related issues.”

Ear Pain MD and the children’s variety join the company’s other product, Earwax MD. It’s currently sold at CVS Pharmacy and select Target stores, as well as on Amazon.com.
