Can I put triple antibiotic ointment in my nose?

Ointment in nose

Pills
Hello. The topical ointment called triple antibiotic ointment should not be placed within the nasal cavity. I have seen severe inflammatory reactions within the nose after this medication was applied intranasally. The neomycin is usually the culprit. This medication is highly allergenic in some people. See your doctor who can prescribe bactroban intranasal. This should do the job. Good luck.

Is using antibiotic ointment for inside my nose ok?

Antibiotic ointment

Bursitis
Hello, I recommend using an antibiotic called mupiricin within your nose. This medication has the indication to be used inside. It is an ointment that your doctor needs to prescribe for you. If you use the OTC brands, your nose could develop an inflammation worse than the infection you are treating.

so using antibiotic ointment for inside my nose is ok?

In general yes

Antibiotic
I frequently have my patients use antibiotic ointment in their nose. I just don't like them to use antibiotic appointments that contained Neomycin. Neomycin sometimes can cause sensitivity and allergic reactions.

Is antibiotic ointment good for pimple in nose?

Possibly

If you can get the ointment on it then it may heal faster. It certainly can't hurt to try. These things do eventually heal on their own though.

Inside my nose had been dry and sore for days. What can I do? Olive oil,a&d, and antibiotic ointment not helping

Wrong meds

Ear_nose_and_throat
Those substances can actually make the nose more dry. There are over the counter saline gels made for noses to moisturize them. One brand is Ayr gel. Try that. If it doesn't help you may need specific medical treatment for various conditions. See an ENT doctor.
