This combination medication is designed to address minor wounds like cuts, scrapes, and burns, as well as aid in the prevention or treatment of mild skin infections. While minor skin issues often resolve on their own, applying an antibiotic can expedite healing for certain wounds. Bacitracin and polymyxin B belong to the class of medicines known as antibiotics. They work by killing bacteria or preventing their growth.

Uses and Dosage

This medication is intended solely for external use on the skin. Adhere closely to all instructions provided on the product packaging, or as directed by your healthcare provider.

Before application, ensure you wash your hands thoroughly.

Avoid contact with the eyes or mouth. If accidental contact occurs, wipe off the medication and rinse with water immediately. Refrain from using inside the nose unless specifically advised by your doctor.

Prepare the affected area as instructed, ensuring it is clean and dry. When using the ointment or cream, apply a small quantity in a thin layer to the skin, typically 1 to 3 times daily or as per your doctor’s guidance. Gently rub in the medication if your condition allows. If using the powder form, lightly dust it over the area. If necessary, cover with a bandage according to instructions. Remember to wash your hands after application.

Do not exceed the recommended dosage, frequency, or duration of use. Overusing the medication will not accelerate healing and may elevate the risk of adverse effects.

Consistently use this medication to maximize its effectiveness. Establish a routine by applying it at the same times each day to aid in remembering.

If there is no improvement or if your condition worsens after a week of use, or if you suspect a serious medical issue, promptly seek advice from your doctor.

Does Polysporin get rid of major infections?

No, Polysporin (bacitracin / polymyxin B) shouldn’t be used to treat an active skin infection. This medication is only meant to help to prevent an infection, not to fight off a serious infection.

Does Polysporin help blisters?

Yes. Applying Polysporin to a blister can help prevent an infection, especially if the blister breaks and some raw skin gets exposed.
