Hydrocortisone Polymyxin And Neomycin Medication
Rapid: Most topical drugs like the otic solution you describe are minimally absorbed by the body. Furthermore, the amount you are using is so small there is more than likely small to undetectable amounts in your blood stream. ...Read more
Cortisone is a naturally produced hormone in the body, produced by the adrenal glands. It is often used as a potent medication for inflammatory disease. In serious cases, it is a "wonder" drug, and can be life saving. However, long and continuous use can cause many serious and uncomfortable side effects. Hydrocortisone is a topical skin variety and much ...Read more

ENT put peroxide in ear in the a.m. and then I put cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) in ear at 10:00 p.m. Ear hurts quite a bit. Bad combination?
Underlying condition: There is undoubtedly some underlying condition present causing your pain. Presumably a swimmers ear, which is the reason an ent would use cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) in the first place? What did she say to use for pain? Are you using the drops as prescribed? Do you have an ear tube in place? Check with the prescribing ent about pain management and regimen for drops. ...Read more
I accidently put neomycin polymyxin b sulfates and hydrocortisone otic drops in my sons eyes. Flushed with water. What to do now?
Likely ok: If he has not complained of any pain or irritation immediately and you have flushed out the eyes immediately, there is unlikely to be any harm done. Even if there was transient irritation, it would not likely have inflicted any long-lasting problem. ...Read more

Can cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) eardrops cause dry sinus or sinus pressure?
Unlikely: Ear drops shouldn't pass through your ear drum (unless you have tubes or a perforation) and should have no effect on your sinuses. ...Read more
Probably so: Cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) is a combination of a steroid and a topical antibiotic. The steroid is probably the component that is doing the most for your reaction. I would avoid the topical antibiotic unless there is truly a bacterial infection that needs to be treated. The antibiotic portion carries the risk of an allergic reaction and can confound the clinical picture. ...Read more
1week: Most cases of external otitis would respond within 1 week. Although these drops are efficacious for treatment of middle ear infection, ENT academy does not recommend there use if there is a hole in the ear drum or tubes in place. Neomycin is theoretically oto toxic, although rarely seen. Thank trial lawyers for driving up the price of ear drops. ...Read more

Why does my son say his mouth hurts after giving him some cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) ear drops an hour ago?
Can you use a cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) ear suspension to prevent an ear infection?
No: Cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) ear suspension is one of the treatments for a current external ear infection ("swimmers ear"), but is not used for prevention. A mixture of equal parts white vinegar and rubbing alcohol is an old tried-and-true preventative treatment. ...Read more

Is there a problem using cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) ear drops for an ear infection with meniers?
Does neomycin and polymyxin b sulfates and hydrocortisone (neomycin sulfate, polymyxin b sulfate and hydrocortisone) cure a stye I have steroid eye drops my dr. Prescribed me a few months ago. I have been trying to get an answer for 2 hours and haven't go
remember doctors can not diagnose over the phone or internet, but is the 'stye' you describe a painful bump in your eyelid? --if so the treatment is not a steroid (so no hydrocortisone)
a stye is a 'blocked gland' in your eyelid (it's a mechanical problem)
the general treatment is:
-anti-biotic eye drop or ointment
if not improved : a small surgical procedure by an ophthomologist
hope you're better soon. ...Read more
ear pain, ENT put peroxide in it this morning and I instilled cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) in it tonight for infection. Is this a combination to be concerned about?
Should be fine: The peroxide was, likely, to help remove ear wax, though it can, also, be used to kill germs. The cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) is for infection and/or inflammation. So, cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) should help if there is an infection like swimmer ear (AKA Otis externa) in two ways: 1) kills germs, 2) makes it less red and painful. I wouldn't put both peroxide and cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) in your ear at the same time, but hours apart is fine. ...Read more

Can I use camphor phinique for an inner ear infection my ear is stopped up I was prescribed cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) and amoxivillin bunt can't afford them
Confusing statement: Amoxicillin is an old antibiotic and generally very cheep. You should look into a discount card you can find most places. It would be your best chance to cure a middle ear infection of the items listed. Putting camphophonique in your canal may give you something to do, but it wouldn't cure a middle ear infection. You may self heal in 6-8 weeks like they did before antibiotics. ...Read more

Neomycin and polymyxin b sulfates and hydrocortisone otic solution, usp can they be used in the eyes? My daughter got pink eye took her to the hospital and this is what they gave her but the bottle says for ears only?
Do not use this:
Ear drops are way too acidic for the eye. Most of them are in the 3.0 to 4.0 range. Eye drops tend to be more neutral and will sting intensely as the PhH drops below 7. If you squirt a lot of ear drops into an eye, you may get a chemical burn.
In addition to this, I try to avoid putting neomycin solution in eyes as it is toxic and can cause allergic reactions. ...Read more

Can I use camphor phenique for a inner ear infection don't have the money for a prescription called cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone)
Hello.: Hello. Campho phenique can help with pain of the external ear canal. However if you have a middle or inner ear infection, I am not sure that it would help with those sources of pain. Also, if you have an ear infection, it will not cure it. It also won't help hearing loss. Is there any chance that you have a ruptured ear drum? - because I don't know what would happen if you used this substance and the ear drum was ruptured. ...Read more

No: Not necessarily.Get a more detailed answer ›
No: While Maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) drops contain a steroid (dexamethasone), the amounts absorbed into the body after topical administration on the eye are virtually undetectable and have none of the effects on the body associated with oral steroids (such as weight gain). However, prolonged use of steroid drops on the eyes can have ocular side effects including cataracts and glaucoma. ...Read more
Can do better: No one needs to have bad acne or acne scarring in this day and age. I start folks on cheap topical Clindamycin which usually works; if that fails, cheap systemic tetracycline (kept mine under control for 25 years). A dermatologist can offer you even more potent retinoic acid-related meds, especially if it's cystic acne. You have a choice. ...Read more
