In brief: Marketing

These are mostly over the counter products usually containing several antibiotics to get a broad coverage.
They are in face useful and will cover a wide range of bacterial invaders to the body. Marketing adds the term "all-purpose" so you will purchase the product for any type of skin condition. A persistent lesion should be seen by your dermatologist.
