Moist warm compress: 24 y/o female asks if bacitracin zinc and polymyxin b sulfate ophthalmic ointment work for eye stye? Not recommended.

It won't help or hurt: "styes" is a layman's term for blocked oil glands in the eyelid. Most all will resolve completely with time and warm compresses. If they do not resolve in a reasonable period of time, an ophthalmologist can easily incise and drain them leading to quick resolution. This triple antibiotic should not hurt anything (if not allergic), but won't help either as these are not bacterial in origin. ...Read more

Inner vs Outer: If this an inner ear infection then the antibiotic ointment will not be helpful. I recommend making an appointment with your PCP or an ENT to see if you have an infection.

I got conjunctivitis (not severe, just beginning), how long would it be until the redness goes away on trimethoprim polymyxin B ophthalmic eye drops.?

No: However, recurrent eye infections should make you wonder why this is happening. If you are a contact lens user, perhaps there is a problem with your lens hygiene. Also, this time of year allergic conjunctivitis is common and can simulate or bring on infection. Finally, be sure to clean your eyelashes and lids daily with a washcloth and warm water. ...Read more
