  • Neosporin ?

    As you all know, I had a small burn and then a bunch of mosquiteo bites and with skimpy summer clothes being what they are, I wanted to give my boo-boos a hand in healing up quickly, so I started Neosporning them twice a day.

    It helped a lot and most of them are quite healed up at this point, but then I read the label; that you're not supposed to use it for more than a week without a doctor's advice.

    I wonder why ...........

    People Develop A Rash Fairly Often With Neosporin, Because Of The Neomycin In It. It Your Not Having A Rash, I'd Go Ahead And Use It. But.... If It Looks Infected Call Your Doc For Antibiotics, There's A Rx Ointment Called Bactroban Or Altabax (it's More Expensive, Newer) That Will Take Care Of The More Harsh Bacteria If The Neosporin's Not Doing It.

          My friend swears by "Honey" for a burn. I dont know about putting it on the the Boo-Boos tho. Her daughter got a bad grease burn, and it healed up without scarring. Suppose to be a natural antibiotic

            As long as the sugar concentration of the honey stays above 60% then it can be bactericidal. However, if the honey gets watered down from a 'juicy' wound, then it will cause bacteria to grow. I wouldn't take the chance.

              Not to change the subject, I remember years ago, when I was a pharmacy tech, we'd make up a paste of granulated sugar and betadine solution to put on patients bed sores in the nursing home. Just a little FYI! lol

                    I asked my dermy for Batroban and the pharmacist wouldn't give it to us. Said it's for kids only ......

                      It's prescription only, but Bactroban is for all ages. They be wrong! Tell 'em I said so!!

                          LMAO! I saw that RX and even registered the RX and then went right on and asked my question anyway! Definitely had a blonde moment!
