I have been having problems with otitis externa, outer ear infection, and I was told this might help. I use it off and on and it helps to clean my ears well. Grateful I can check on Amazon for products I need to use regularly.
I'm so happy that I can get this at Amazon! I use it as an ear treatment to prevent "swimmer's ear". It's clinically proven to be an effective preventive/treatment for yeast/bacterial overgrowth in the ear canal. (NOTE: eardrum must NOT be perforated) The product I used to be able to get through my doctor as a prescription product has been discontinued and the OTC alcohol-based drying solutions just hurt too much. This must be used diluted.
I suffer from eczema and occasional bouts of dyshidrosis (aka pompholyx; tiny clear itchy blisters under the skin) on the sides of my fingers during hot weather, sometimes persisting for months on end. Using a combination of vinegar soaks and compresses soaked in Burow's solution, I can control the breakouts, itchiness, and facilitate faster healing. There are no known cures for dyshidrosis, but Burrow's solution does have a proven track record amongst sufferers for improving the sometimes debilitating (and embarrassing) skin condition. I prefer using this over over-the-counter corticosteroids like hydrocortizone, which while it relieves itching, seems to make the rashes break out worse at times and long term use of them is related to some nasty side effects.
I got this as a cheaper option to the very expensive Domeboro and I have to say that while Domeboro works WONDERFULLY on my allergic-reaction hives, this solution was pretty much like water. Did absolutely nothing for me. Might have the kids try it on their acne and see. I've tried it 4 times and no success.
Between Christmas 2012 and new years I came down with a case of shingles. The doctor gave me a few prescription and recommended Burow's Solution to relive the itching and help heal the scabbing that occures. He mistakingly thought it was easly found at most drug stores which I found out was not the case. After going to at least going to at least five major drug stores in the area with no luck I tried my computer and found it on Amazone but by the time I ordered it and received it as fast as shipping could send it, most of the damage had been done. I did however use it the rest of the time and it did as the doctor said especially working on reliveing the itching that occures and for that I was VERY thankful
