Indications

Polysporin Original Antibiotic Ointment is an over-the-counter ointment used for minor cuts, scrapes, and burns to help prevent infection and speed up the healing process. It is used to form a protective coating over the affected area to help keep out dirt and germs. It can be indicated to prevent and treat skin infections caused by bacteria.

Polysporin contains two antibiotics, bacitracin zinc and polymyxin B sulfate. Bacitracin is an antibiotic type belonging to the polypeptides class. It works by interfering with the bacterial cell wall synthesis and preventing the growth and multiplication of bacteria.

Polymyxin B is an antibiotic that belongs to the class of polymyxins. It works by disrupting the bacterial cell membrane and causing leakage of intracellular components, leading to bacterial death.

Use and Dosage

Polysporin Original Antibiotic Ointment should be applied directly to the affected area two to three times daily. Do not use the ointment for longer than seven days, unless directed by a doctor. Do not wear contact lenses while you are using Polysporin Original Antibiotic Ointment.

To use Polysporin Original Antibiotic Ointment, first, you should clean the affected area with mild soap and water, and then dry it thoroughly. Take a small amount of the ointment on a clean finger or a cotton swab and apply it to the affected area, covering it completely with a thin layer of the ointment. You can apply the ointment one to three times per day, depending on your needs. Make sure to wash your hands before and after using the ointment. If the symptoms persist or worsen after using the ointment, you should consult a healthcare professional.

Take the Ointment exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
