Answer

Acidifying agents

These agents lower pH levels, which makes the environment unfavorable to microbial growth. CAUTION: Any use of ototopical medications should be used with the knowledge of whether a tympanic membrane perforation exists and whether the medication has any ototoxic potential.

Acetic acid (VoSol)

Works well in superficial bacterial infections of otitis externa.
