This combination medication is prescribed to address specific skin infections. Its formulation includes neomycin, an antibiotic that inhibits bacterial growth, and fluocinolone, a medium-strength corticosteroid that alleviates swelling, itching, and redness of the skin. It exclusively targets bacterial skin infections and is ineffective against other types of skin infections such as those caused by fungi or viruses.

Uses and Dosage

This medication is designed for topical application only. Before use, ensure your hands are clean. Clean and dry the affected area thoroughly. Apply a thin layer of the medication to the affected area and gently massage it in as directed by your doctor, typically 2 to 4 times a day. After use, wash your hands unless you are treating the hands themselves.

Do not cover, bandage, or wrap the treated area unless specifically instructed by your doctor.

Avoid using excessive amounts of this medication or applying it more frequently or for a longer duration than prescribed.

Doing so will not expedite the healing process but may increase the risk of side effects. This product is not recommended for use over a large area of the body. Do not continue using this product beyond one week unless directed by your doctor.

Take care to avoid contact with the eyes, mouth, or nose. If accidental contact occurs, wipe off the medication and rinse thoroughly with water.

For optimal results, use this medication consistently at the same times each day.

Inform your doctor if your condition does not improve after one week of treatment.

How long should I use Neo-Synalar?

Only use Neo-Synalar for as long as your provider has prescribed it to you. The steroid part of this medication can put you at risk for more infections, and the antibiotic part can cause kidney or hearing problems if it’s used over a wide area for a long period of time.

Should I cover my skin with a bandage after applying Neo-Synalar?

No, don’t cover up the area where you applied Neo-Synalar unless told to do so by your provider. Dressings or coverings over this medication can cause your body to absorb more medication than it needs, which can lead to more side effects.
