Objective: To discuss the effect of improved method in otomycosis with
pevisone. Method: 160 patients of otomycosis were randomly divided into
traditional group (TG) and improved group (IG) equally. All the
patients，external auditory canals (EACs) were cleaned by the cerumen
hook and attractor, in TG, pevisone was applied by traditional method
after cleaning the EACs, but in IG, the cotton balls were used to clean
the EACs additionally and pevisone was applied by our improved method.
The treatment was implemented once every other day for three times in
total in two groups. At 3d, 1wk, 1mo, 6mo of treatment, cure rates were
analyzed and compared between the two groups,at 6mo of treatment the
recurrence rate was compared between the two groups. Results: The cure
rates in the IG(50%,66.7%,61.5%,53.8%) were higher than that in the
TG(32.9%,48.7%,46.1%,34.2%) at four observation time points
respectively,the difference between the two groups were statistically
significant(p<0.05).The recurrence rate in IG was lower than
which in TG(9%vs22.4%)at 6mo of treatment(p<0.05).
Conclusion: The effect of improved method in otomycosis with pevisone
has great advantages both in the therapeutic effect and treating
process, which is worth further promoting in clinical practice.
