Otomycosis is a fungal infection of external auditory canal characterized by itching, pain, sensation of ear blocking, impaired hearing and/ or ear discharge.
Two diagnosed cases of otomycosis were treated with nufookh (insufflation) therapy at E.N.T. OPD, HSZH Govt. Unani Medical College, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India in 2017. Previously, the both patients were being treated with different allopathic antifungal ear drops and got temporary relief. The nufookh (insufflation) therapy of a compound Unani formulation, containing Mur makki, Kundur, Suhaga, Rasout and Phitkari was used for the treatment of both cases and showed significant result. It is recommended that this cost effective therapy with no reported adverse effect can be used for the treatment of uncomplicated cases of otomycosis.
