Ciloxan Ocular Anti Bacterial
Viral conjunctivitis: Probably not a bacterial infection. Usually a viral infection starts in one eye and spreads to the other by self inoculation. The tears you are using are fine. The antibiotic, ciloxan, is ineffectual for a virus infection. Meticulous cleaning of the lashes with warm water with diluted baby shampoo, an eye decongestant like opcona can ease symptoms.

Sweet!: Yes it's true: honey has antimicrobial activity & can help in wound healing because it has hydrogen peroxide, a low ph & a high concentration (osmolarity) as well as bee derived antibacterial proteins. Unfortunately the activity is variable. Manuka honey derived from manuka bush of new zeland is one having activity.

I have really bad body odour and I have tried almost all the available anti-persperants and anti-bacterial soaps. My underarms are the major issue.

What's the difference between anti-bacterial soap, regular soap, and soap-free body wash? Do they all clean the same?

The soap free probably does not contain sodium lauryl sulfate the main ingredient of soap, but you can look at the ingredients to see the difference. Triclosan is a redundant ingredient and a contributor to bacterial resistance. ...Read more

I fell on the boil on my butt and caused it to burst. I showered and thoroughly washed it with anti-bacterial soap, applied neosporan and bandage.
Butt-First Bumper!!!: Well, doc, pretty good! I'll have to try that on a patient next time I work the ER! So, keep it clean and change the bandage periodically and see how it goes. If it gets better, great! You're lucky! If not getting better or getting worse you'll have two choices: 1) Go up to the third floor and jump out butt first or, 2) Go to your doctor for a more meticulous exam. It may have to be cleaned-out. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
