Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Face, Legs, Activity, Cry, Consolibility Scale (FLACC) or Faces Pain Scale Revised (FPS-R) [ Time Frame: 1 hour after a single dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Reduction of pain symptoms


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • FLACC or FPS-R [ Time Frame: Dosing every 3 hours for 1 day ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Effect of dosing every 3 hours for 1 day in the reduction of pain symptoms over 3 days

  • FLACC or FPS-R [ Time Frame: Effect of dosing every 3 hours for 1 day ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The effect of dosing every 3 hours for 1 day on percent of subjects with complete or partial pain relief


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Safety as assessed by Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 3 days after 1 day of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    AEs to be assessed for a period of 3 days after 1 day of dosing.

Estimated Study Completion Date: June 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Antipyrine and Benzocaine Otic solution
antipyrine 54 mg and benzocaine 14 mg. Apply drops along the wall of the ear canal until filled and repeating every 3 hours for 24 hours unless the subject is sleeping
Drug: Antipyrine and Benzocaine otic solution Drug: Placebo Otic solution
Active Comparator: Antipyrine Otic Solution
Antipyrine 54 mg and glycerine dehydrated to 1.0 mL. Apply drops along the wall of the ear canal until filled and repeating every 3 hours for 24 hours unless the subject is sleeping
Drug: Antipyrine Otic Solution Drug: Placebo Otic solution
Active Comparator: Benzocaine Otic Solution
benzocaine 14 mg and glycerine dehydrated to 1.0 ml. Apply drops along the wall of the ear canal until filled and repeating every 3 hours for 24 hours unless the subject is sleeping
Drug: Benzocaine Otic Solution Drug: Placebo Otic solution
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Placebo otic solution will be glycerin that is dehydrated . Apply drops along the wall of the ear canal until filled and repeating every 3 hours for 24 hours unless the subject is sleeping
Drug: Placebo Otic solution

Detailed Description:

Reduction of pain symptoms will be measured by using the Face, Legs, Activity, Cry, Consolability Scale (FLACC) and the Faces pain Scale Revised (FPS-R).
