  • Prevention of infection in minor cuts, scrapes, burns, abrasions, insect bites, pimples, pustules, and other skin breaks
What is in the medicine?

This medicine is a topical antibacterial ointment containing bacitracin, polymyxin B Sulfate and neomycin. These agents are used for the prevention or treatment of superficial skin infections caused by susceptible bacteria. The combination of these three topical antibacterials is more effective than when used singly since together it gives better antibacterial coverage and affects different types of bacteria responsible for various skin infections.
