Polysporin Ocular Anti Bacterial
Tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) Ophthalmic Ointment given for eye rednes,swelling,oozing yellow,drynes-no bacterial infection found in skin scraping-why then give antibiotic?
Culture ?: Tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) is a good treatment for severe redness caused by bacterial conjunctivitis, especially those caused by gram negative bacteria. If an eye scraping is done with culture and no bacteria are cultured, the irritation may be due to viral or allergic issues, that could be complicated by bacterial superinfection. Tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) is a good 1st line, followed by specific therapy based on sensitivities ...Read more

Does allergic conjunctivitis respond to the eye drops for bacterial conjunctivitis? And vice versa does bacterial respond to antihistamine drops?
Generally no. : If it is a bacterial infection, it should only respond to antibiotics much like allergic conjunctivitis should only respond to only allergy drop like antihistamine/and or mast cell stabilizer drop. However some infections can cause itchiness in which case an allergy drop is added in addition to an antibiotic drop.

Does Maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) cause dry eyes, and fatigue? Prescribed for blepharitis caused infection.
Not usually: Maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin), (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) in the normally prescribed pattern of dosage, can be an effective treatment for eye infection. It can assist with blepharitis but that requires hygiene of the lids more than an antibiotic. There is no chance that Maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) will cause eye dryness, unless you develop an allergy to it. Fatigue is almost certainly from another cause. ...Read more
Is polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) Antibiotic drops for external eye/ear infections, such as Pink Eye ok to take at 38 weeks pregnant?
It's probably safe: Polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) drops are considered "class C" during pregnancy, which basically means that there is not enough good data in the medical literature to say whether it is harmful or safe. That being said, the systemic absorbtion of topical drops applied to the eye/ear is fairly low (meaning very little will actually make it into the blood stream), which makes harm to the fetus unlikely. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can cortisporin (neomycin polymyxin and hydrocortisone) eardrops cause dry sinus or sinus pressure ?
Yes: The two medications are different classes, the former is for a bacterial eye infection, and the later is for the itching that occurs with allergies. A caveat would be if you are trying to decrease some untoward side effect of too much polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) use, which can cause a contact dermatitis and conjunctivitis. I'd make sure that you follow up with your eye doctor if you are still experiencing eye issu. ...Read more
