Maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) eye med: Maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) is a combination steroid (dexamethasone) and antibiotic (neomycin polymixin). This medication is commonly used in adults in the eye drop and ointment form for mild eye and eyelid infections. Neomycin polymixin is essentially the same as otc neosporin. I would consult with your pediatrician first. Generally, anything used in the eye should be safe for use in the nose.
