Which one is better to prevent secondary infection, while recovering from HSV in the eye. Gentamicin Sulfate or Ciprofloxacin HCL?
Either drop is good: Both Gentimycin and Cipro (ciprofloxacin)floxicin are pretty good antibiotics against the common bapathogens around the eye that cause secondary infections. Gentimycin is a little more toxic to the cornea than the Cipro (ciprofloxacin) but probably has fewer resistant bacteria because we don't use it much anymore. I still use gentimycin after all routine cataract surgeries and after 25 years and over 20, 000 ops - no infections ...Read more

Depends: If your eye is infected with a susceptible bacterium, then the response will be rapid and you should notice improvent in 2-4 days. If you have the far more common viral infection, then the garamycin (gentamicin) will be irrelevant and the virus will run its usual course of 3-10 days. ...Read more
A week or less: Garamycin (gentamicin) is not used much by ophthalmologists any longer for "pinkeye", or conjunctivitis. Nevertheless, it is a reasonable choice for straightforward bacterial conjunctivitis. If the signs of infection, i.e. Redness, tearing, discharge, matted eyelid, etc. Are not resolved within a week the affected person should see an ophthalmologist as a stronger medication may be required. ...Read more

IN the future - nair is not designed for delicate areas such as the vagina/ vulva - so please don't do that.
You can use a hydrocortisone cream (not ointment) and an antibacteria cream such as bactroban (requires a prescription), and KEEP the area area CLEAN and DRY - and use antibacteria soap - NOT any lotions, vaseline, etc. In addition, I also recommend never shaving - trimming okay. ...Read more

The only responsible recommendation I can make at this point is to seek medical evaluation. It will help to determine the extent of injury caused. ...Read more
