Neomycin + bacitracin
Ointment, 5 mg of neomycin sulfate + 500 IU of bacitracin zinc/g
A topical broad-spectrum antibiotic.
Treatment of superficial bacterial infections of the skin due to staphylococci and streptococci.
Dosage and administration
Adults and children: a thin layer of ointment should be applied to the affected skin three times daily until symptoms have resolved.
Known hypersensitivity to bacitracin or neomycin.
Neomycin + bacitracin ointment should not be applied to large areas of burned or broken skin, since significant systemic absorption can occur, which may lead to irreversible ototoxicity and renal damage.
Sensitization, especially to neomycin, may occur with continued or repeated use, causing reddening and scaling of the treated area. Prolonged use may result in overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms.
Anaphylactic reactions are rare.
The ointment should be stored, protected from light and moisture, below 25 °C.
