The article presents a modern approach to the diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory diseases of the outer ear. The authors consider the main predisposing factors that determine the development of external otitis: traumatic injury, water ingress, use of in-the-ear headphones, occupational hazards and others. The role of various microorganisms, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, bacteria of Enterobacteriaceae family and fungi of genera Aspergillus, Candida, Penicillium, Mucor in the genesis of inflammatory pathology of the outer ear is discussed. For the purpose of effective treatment of external otitis the authors suggest to use a local combined preparation Candibiotic, which contains antibacterial, fungicidal, hormonal and analgesic components that affect the main factors of pathogenesis of the disease.
