Description
Curator's Comment: Description was created based on several sources, including https://www.google.com/patents/US2824042 | https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22718290 | https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15516810 | https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10211213 | https://www.drugs.com/monograph/aluminum-acetate.html

Burow invented an astringent antiseptic solution of aluminium acetate in water to relieve the itching and inflammation of minor skin irritations. At present the oflicial U. S. P. procedure to made Burow's solution involves the reaction of aluminum sulfate, calcium carbonate and acetic acid to form aluminum sub-acetate, also termed basic aluminum acetate. The solution is available as an over-the-counter drug for topical administration, with brand names including Domeboro. Burow's solution has been shown to be effective against chronic suppurative otitis media and otitis externa. It is active against bacteria resulting in damage to the cell wall.

Temporarily relieves minor skin irritations due to: – Poison ivy | – Poison oak – Poison sumac | – Insect bites – Athlete’s foot | – Rashes caused by soaps, detergents, cosmetics, or jewelry
Curative
DOMEBORO

Approved Use

This medication is used to treat an outer ear infection (external otitis). This product contains acetic acid/aluminum acetate, a combination that stops the growth of bacteria and fungus. Treating the infection reduces pain and swelling in the ear. Wetness in the ear canal can help bacteria and fungus to grow. This medication also causes drying of the ear canal, helping to cure the infection.

Sample Use Guides

DOMEBORO® SOOTHING SOAK – dissolve 1 to 3 packets in a pint (16 oz) of cool or warm water – stir until fully dissolved; do not strain or filter. The resulting mixture contains 0.16% (1 packet), 0.32% (2 packets), or 0.48% (3 packets) aluminum acetate and is ready for use For use as a soak: – soak affected area for 15 to 30 minutes as needed, or as directed by a doctor – repeat 3 times a day or as directed by a doctor – discard solution after each use. For use as a compress or wet dressing: – soak a clean, soft cloth in the solution. – apply cloth loosely to affected area for 15 to 30 minutes – repeat as needed or as directed by a doctor – discard solution after each use
Route of Administration: Topical
Burow's solution (13% aluminum subacetate) is active against S. aureus and P. aeruginosa, resulting in damage to the cell wall.
