For what problem? Without knowing what you're treating, it's hard to say which would be "better." polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) contains synthetic antibiotics, Bacitracin and polymyxin. Calendula ointment is from the marigold plant, calendula officinalis. It's been traditionally used in minor skin wounds: skin infections, burns, bee stings, sunburn, warts, etc. Most research comes from animal studies. http://tinyurl.com/lapg2kq.
My lips keep cracking in the corners from dryness. Lip balm makes it worse and polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) doesn't seem to help either. Any other suggestions?
