Neomycin is a gastroenterology drug.
Neomycin is a gastroenterology drug.
Probably so: Cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) is a combination of a steroid and a topical antibiotic.

Neomycin not emycin (erythromycin): Yes, you can use topical creams or ointments containing neomycin and polymyxin if you are allergic to e-mycin, also called erythromycin.

Sulfa drugs- rash can I use polymyxin b sulfate eye drops?
Yes: Polymyxin is an effective anti-bacterial. You could use it without the allergies popping up as it has with others. However: are you sure you need this drop?

And in so doing you have sensitized yourself to antibiotics that you might need for an actual infection. ...Read more

Not usually: Antibiotics are generally ineffective for treatment of stye or chalazion, which are caused by blockage of oil ducts, not by infection.

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
