Triple Antibiotic Cream for burn?
Hey guys, does triple antibiotic cream with bacitracin zinc,neomycin sulfate, and polymyxin b sulfate help for a big curling iron burn? Thank you to all of you! Asked by Annamaria Gettys 1 month ago.

If it is a non-water soluble cream I would no use it. I would use Burn Gel or the like. Burn gel is a product name it has Aloe Vera, Tea Tree oil and this is the good part LIDOCAINE a very good pain killer. It is water soluble and it is not greasy so it won't be hard to clean off and won't stain your cloths and it kills the pain. I have quit using anything else. FYI if you get a burn always use cold or cool water never ice. If it is not bigger than say 2"x 2" and is not a third degree burn (black or dark brown) you can treat it yourself (the face is an exception to this). If it is a third degree burn of any size you should see a doctor and if you don't have burn gel to make a temporary bandage you can use non medicated shaving cream. It washes off and will cover the wound to prevent fluid loss and infections. Also the shaving cream is cool. Believe me avoid bandages that stick or greasy stuff because it will be very likely that the doctors will have to scrub it off which as you can imagine will hurt unless the burn has gone deep.

My rabbit has a white spot on eye. I think its a ulcer.?
I am planning to treat it with human eye drops. will that work? And does she need a collar to prevent her from itching? Asked by Lanora Stolzenburg 1 month ago.

My vets suggest using an ointment that contains neomycin, polymyxin b sulfates, and bacitracin zinc (otherwise known as BNP). It has an antibiotic in it (though it doesn't stay sterile for long), and allows the eye to heal as much as it is able. I've used this for goopy eyes in my rabbits, as well as on my cat (a stray who has a cyst in her eye), and on my ferret kit (ulcerated cornea from the petstore). I've never had to collar my rabbit to prevent scratching an injury, so I'm guessing not, unless she is unable to leave it alone. Usually, though, after the first dose, they stop messing with it because it stops bothering them. At least that's been my experience. Hope this helps! Answered by Deetta Seckler 1 month ago.

Without seeing you rabbit it is difficult to say what exactly is wrong, but the white circle you describe on his eye is most likely an ulcer on the surface of his cornea {the clear front of the eyeball}. This is caused by some trauma to the surface of the eyeball and he will need to be seen by your vet to have it checked out. Sometimes it can be caused by a hay seed going under the eyelids, which could still be there. They normally need antibiotics to prevent infection while it heals. Sometimes rabbits can get a cataract in the lens inside their eye, which makes it look white instead of clear. This would appear as a white pupil instead of a black one. In this case the white would seem to be inside the eyeball rather than on the surface as with an ulcer. Either way, he would be best checked over by a vet, Answered by Glendora Griseta 1 month ago.

I wouldn't recommend human eye drops. Does not sound like a good idea. Take her to the vet. Answered by Kirstie Kibbler 1 month ago.

My rooster has an eye infection in both eyes. It started yesterday morning, and this morning, both eyes are giving off discharge and the entire area around them is swollen. So...I was wondering; I already have and am using eye salve ( on the tube it says Neomycin and Polymyxin B Sulfates and Bacitracin Zinc Opthalmic Ointment USP Sterile) but is Visine safe for chickens? If so, it seems to help with swelling, so maybe it would help too. I do also have him on the antibiotic water supplements sold at TSC (Duramycin-10 Tetracycline Hydrochloride soluble powder). I really need to keep him seeing well enough to eat and drink until Monday or Tuesday when I can take him to the vet. (This is Saturday, and he is closed.) Answered by Lavada Gower 1 month ago.

YIKES OK well NO to the Visine. Most Vets do have SAT hours 8-12 noon.. if you cant go in at least try calling them. I asume you already have a VET and ar ento just looking for one.. Not all vets treat birds let alone chickens. Whatever the infection your chicken has .. not all antibiotics will work to treat it it has to be an antibiotic that is specific to teh bacteria he has. DO NOT use Visine. IF he is not eating or drinknig well enough on his won you may need to help him .. also keeping him warm and quiet is good and away from other birds and in a very clean area where he cant injure himself at all if he does not see soething and fall or run into it. Birds mask illness very well , My guess is your little guy is quit ill and everyday he does not get vet care is a risk. I wouldnot wait any longer than you have too. the eyes infection may be a local one or a sign of a larger problem. Also unless teh medicines you are using on this bird were prescribed by a vet be very careful... get calling around to local vets and places to get into if you cant get him in this weekend. Then get him in on Monday ASAP. Good luck and remeber try to keep him from being Stressed. Answered by Coleman Moosman 1 month ago.

Asked by Milda Frankel 1 month ago.

Hi, so my 8 week old kitten has been sick recently so I called my vet and she gave me a prescription for him. He's been sneezing and has a bunch of yellow boogers around his eyes and he just kinda looks sick. He keeps playing and he's happy, but I can tell he's sick. The vet told me I didn't have to bring the cat and that she would give me a prescription, but the problem is is that I feel like it is not helping and I had to pay $25 for it. On the prescription package it says: "feline ointment. Triple antibiotic ointment. Put small amount into each eye three times a day." When I took out the medicine though, it says the name of the medicine is Bausch and Lomb. Then it says under the name: "neomycin and polymyxin B sulfates and bacitracin zinc ophthalmic ointment USP (sterile). Rx only." Then it has a picture of an eye under it. I do not know what the medicine is for or if it is even helping my kitten. My kitten is still sick and still has boogers around his eyes and it's been a few days since he's been taking the medicine. The vet said if it doesn't work then I should come back to the vet and let her give me a oral antibiotic for the cat. I asked her to give me that in the beginning but she said no. Is my vet just making me use this ointment so I can spend more money than I need? She said the medicine will dry his eyes and nose so therefore he won't be sick and that the boogers will go away but that's not happening and now my other male kitten who is also right weeks is sick. Answered by Mason Kulbeth 1 month ago.

Most upper respiratory things in kittens are both viral and bacterial. A good vet prescribes on the necessary medications. We are too quick to give antibiotics when they are not needed (human doctors too) and now we have created so many antibiotic resistant bacteria. Antibiotics do nothing for a virus, they treat secondary bacterial infections only. The yellow, weeping eyes are bacterial. If it's not helping, then the kitten - both kittens - need to see the vet. These are extremely contagious, and whatever one has, so will the other. She was hoping that the ointment would clear up the eye infection - those can be nasty in kittens, and lead to scarring of the eye, vision loss, and even rupture of the eye - and that oral antibiotics were not needed. You have a good vet, IMHO, and not one who just wants to suck money out of you. The eye ointment is the first line - oral antibiotics if not needed are a bad thing. Your kitten still may or may not need them, as if it's not bacterial they won't help at all. Once both kittens are over this, they need their first FVRCP vaccine. That prevents (or lessens the effect) of these types of viruses. Kittens should never, ever be taken from mom (not criticizing you, just stating a fact) until 8 weeks or later, as they have crummy immune systems, and nursing from mom provides them with some immunity to these kinds of viruses. Be sure to have the vet test one of them for FeLV as well (only need to test one, as if one has it so does the other). They will get better, hang in there. Answered by Krysten Spasiano 1 month ago.

He sounds like he has an upper respiratory infection that is compromising his eyes as well. The ointment (which is antibiotics and eye protectants) is so his eyes do not get permanently damaged and to help any secondary infection the URI is causing in his eyes. Since URIs are caused by viruses and antibiotics don't work on viruses your vet is trying to treat his secondary eye infection. For URI the best treatment is time, a clean environment and wholesome food/water. Keeping them warm is good and also for bad congestion a humidifier or putting them in a room with a hot shower running helps clear the sinuses. They usually last about 7-10 days. She may have not wanted him to come in just yet since vet offices are rife with disease and kittens are fragile and she believes the ointment and time will be ok for now. Vets will prescribe antibiotics for secondary infections such as pneumonia (does not sound like your kitten has that at the moment since he is playing). Topical eye meds will target his eyes sometimes better than oral ones can since they are right at the surface. There really is not much a vet can prescribe for the sneezing, sniffles, etc. It is similar to a human cold. They only treat the secondary infections which it sounds like in your case is a possible eye infection. URIs are very contagious like a human cold so that is why your other kitten is probably coming down with it. Watch for them stopping eating and moving around, and generally acting lethargic. That is when it gets more serious and might require antibiotics/supportive care to avoid secondary pneumonia. Good luck with your kitties >^.^< (ps next time you talk to her ask her about vaccines for URIs) Answered by Bell Gurrola 1 month ago.

I took Bubba back to the vet yesterday and he got an injection for allergies. $43!! BUT it does seem to be helping a little. Apparently he can only have this shot at a minimum of 8 week intervals because it can cause damage to the liver. I'm going to try the over the counter sterile saline eyedrops when they start bothering him again. We did try the 25mg Benadryl tablets but that didn't help at all.

My dog had a cut on her upper left eye lid. No sure where it came from. But... I clean it I used Saline Solution for Sensitive Eyes three times a day to clean the area and also gave her a few Saline Solution drops to clean the eye too. After a few days the cut started to heal perfectly...!! Answered by Lurline Hedgpeth 1 month ago.

No you will most likely need to go back so your vet can prescribe the proper medication. The only thing I would suggest is you could use saline eye drops to help get any irritating residue left in his eyes out. That would flush out any of the medication still lingering around in his eyes and it may also help soothe his eyes. Make sure they are plain sterile saline eye drop, nothing else in them, you can find them at any CVS or Walgreens. EDIT- My dog has severe allergies as well, do you know if they are contact of food allergies? My dog has both (of course), and allergies are such a hard thing to treat, but one thing that has helped is switching her to a grain free, gluten free food. Many brands make them now, I know Wellness, Blue buffalo, and Innova have them. The other thing I do is when my dog comes in from outside I quickly wipe her and her paws down with a hypoallergenic baby wipe (because with contact allergies they can get outside irritants like pollen on their fur/ feet and if they lick themselves they ingest the irritants and that causes irritation like itchy skin/eyes ect.) The Benedryl is also a good tool, although it is not a miracle worker, but you can give up to 1mg per pound up to three time a day. Good luck! Answered by Lecia Marn 1 month ago.

Any type of irritation to the conjunctiva is considered conjunctivitis. Like humans and all other animals, bacteria and other viruses collect under the nails and claws. Continue with with the prescribed meds that your Vet gave and keep their claws trimmed. Your cat should be o.k. If the eyes of your cats get worse take them both back to the vet. And ask for him to check for viruses. I am not a Vet but looks as though the meds he prescribed is for bacteria and pain. If your cats stop eating, stop using the litter box, or becoming lethargic take them back to the Vet. Also it is not a good Idea to share ointments between the two cats(not that you were). You could just be transferring bacteria back and forth. Answered by Marybelle Zajdel 1 month ago.

Conjunctivitis is extremely contagious, whether it's amongst cats or humans. We had an outbreak of conunctivitis in our office last year and everyone who had it was ordered not to come into work until they were completely well...which doesn't happen very often in my office! I think it's too much of a coincidence for both your cats to suddenly get sore eyes all at the same time, so I would say get them to the vets again to be sure. I'm no doctor or vet, so can't say if there would be any risks in leaving it to clear up by itself...so better be safe than sorry. Answered by Jule Lehoux 1 month ago.

Whats the best to use to get rid of scars?

How to Get Rid of Scars Go see a dermatologist if you want to get rid of scars. It should be obvious that dermatologists have access to newer and stronger medications as well as the ability to refer you to a surgeon should you opt for surgical scar removal. Though, most doctors who see that a patient is concerned about the appearance of a scar will point them towards over-the-counter scar treatments. Silicone based scar sheets manufactured by companies like Neosporin can get rid of scars, to a point. Scar sheets need to be used for at least 8 weeks, wearing each sheet for at least 12 hours a day, changing the sheet every 3-4 days. If your scar doesn’t clear up after 8-10 weeks of use, chances are it’s not going to go away any time soon. Scars take time to heal, time for the old skin to slough away and new skin to replace it. Neosporin Oinment does not get rid of scars as some websites have suggested. According to a Neosporin representative, Neosporin uses Bacitracin Zinc, Neomycin Sulfate, and Polymyxin B Sulfate and antibiotics help to reduce infection, which in turn helps to reduce scarring. It does not get rid of scars that have already healed. They simply reduce the chances of infections that could lead to a more pronounced scar. Mederma gel,which uses a scentless onion extract, can help get rid of scars. Usually Mederma is used to treat acne scars, which is why the company has focused its marketing campaign on youth. But, over a period of time—usually several months—scars that are massaged with Mederma scar treatment gel will begin to fade. And thank god for that, because high school is excruciating enough without being taunted by other kids. Alpha hydroxy skin treatment can help get rid of scars. Alpha Hydrox, just one of the many commercial brand names for alpha hydroxy acid, is primarily used as a facial skin care product, but because alpha hydroxy acid exfoliates any type of skin, it can be used to treat scars elsewhere. Remember though, that because scars are made up of fibroblasts, a very strong and fibrous dermal layer, exfoliating creams will take time to remove scar tissue Lemon juice, as the hens in the hen house will tell you, is a natural bleach and will help you get rid of a scar. Though the application of lemon juice to a scar does have some effect, it is not because it bleaches your skin. If that were true, we’d all be drinking whiskey straight from the bottle, biting down on pieces of leather, and pouring Clorox on our wounds. Lemon juice is an acid, and like all acids, it exfoliates the skin. It is also good for tenderizing meat, which is why it helps to moisten and remove the tough fibroblasts that scar tissue is made of. The Aloe Plant. There aren’t enough words in the English language to express just how wonderful the Aloe plant is. The thing is, Aloe (either in a cream or the raw juice) needs to be applied while the wound is still new or healing. Aloe is a great scar treatment if it is applied in a timely and regular manner. Using Aloe as a scar removal treatment, that is after the scar has healed, is not an effective way to get rid of scars. Scar Removal Sure scars take time to heal, but that doesn’t mean all hope is lost; there are other forms of scar removal, including dermabrasion, laser surgery, and chemical peels. Dermabrasion, as explained by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, works by essentially scraping away very fine layers of the skin where scarring has occurred. Over several months, the dermal layer rises in place of the skin removed and skin pigment returns to normal. Laser surgery to remove scars works much the same way, but in a different manner. By applying a high intensity beam of light to the skin’s surface, rather than a blade, layers of scar tissue are removed, allowing new skin to come to the surface and skin pigment to return as well. Chemical peels, just like the dermabrasion and the laser surgery, act by removing the upper layers of skin, removing scar tissue and allowing newer skin to take its place. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks. According to the ASPS, even if these procedures are done correctly by a licensed physician, the appearance of the skin where the scar was may not improve. In some cases the area where the scar was removed can actually become darker than the skin around it, or the pores in the skin (especially around the face) can get clogged and require further surgery, or you may even experience a very painful infection. So, before you choose to have scars removed surgically, it’s a good idea to talk to your dermatologist or plastic surgeon to weigh your options. Answered by Antonio Loeppke 1 month ago.

Well here are a few ways of removing it so you know which one you'd be comfortable doing. Dermabrasion -Dermabrasion is a cosmetic medical procedure in which the surface of the skin is removed by abrasion Microdermabrasion -Microdermabrasion comes from the above mentioned technique dermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a more natural skin care that is a gentler, less invasive technology for doing an exfoliation on the skin. Laser therapy -Fractional laser resurfacing is a procedure which wounds the skin using microscopic pulses of light. Over the course of several treatments scars are softened as the body regenerates the areas of microthermal wounding. Several lasers are now on the market such as the Matrix RF, Affirm Laser, Fraxel Laser, Pixel Laser, and Sciton Profractional. Chemical therapy -Chemical peels improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin using a chemical solution that causes the skin to blister and eventually peel off. The regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled and scarred than the old skin. Subcision -Subcision is a process used to treat deep rolling scars left behind by acne or other skin diseases. Essentially the process involves separating the skin tissue in the affected area from the deeper scar tissue. This allows the blood to pool under the affected area, eventually causing the deep rolling scar to level off with the rest of the skin area. Once the skin has leveled, treatments such as laser resurfacing, microdermabrasion or chemical peels can be used to smooth out the scarred tissue. Remember that it is so much more easier to get rid of it as soon as possible before it may get worse. Answered by Jodi Zack 1 month ago.

Alpha Hydrox, just one of the many commercial brand names for alpha hydroxy acid, is primarily used as a facial skin care product, but because alpha hydroxy acid exfoliates any type of skin, it can be used to treat scars elsewhere. Remember though, that because scars are made up of fibroblasts, a very strong and fibrous dermal layer, exfoliating creams will take time to remove scar tissue. Questions or suggestions? Check our Beauty & Cosmetics Forum. Scar Removal Sure scars take time to heal, but that doesn’t mean all hope is lost; there are other forms of scar removal, including dermabrasion, laser surgery, and chemical peels. Dermabrasion, as explained by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, works by essentially scraping away very fine layers of the skin where scarring has occurred. Over several months, the dermal layer rises in place of the skin removed and skin pigment returns to normal. Laser surgery to remove scars works much the same way, but in a different manner. By applying a high intensity beam of light to the skin’s surface, rather than a blade, layers of scar tissue are removed, allowing new skin to come to the surface and skin pigment to return as well. Chemical peels, just like the dermabrasion and the laser surgery, act by removing the upper layers of skin, removing scar tissue and allowing newer skin to take its place. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks. According to the ASPS, even if these procedures are done correctly by a licensed physician, the appearance of the skin where the scar was may not improve. In some cases the area where the scar was removed can actually become darker than the skin around it, or the pores in the skin (especially around the face) can get clogged and require further surgery, or you may even experience a very painful infection. So, before you choose to have scars removed surgically, it’s a good idea to talk to your dermatologist or plastic surgeon to weigh your options. Answered by Monserrate Kincade 1 month ago.

Scars are one of the most difficult issues to deal with whether they are they are self inflicted or not. I have scars too all over my arms and wrists and I have tried every cream, lotion, oil, you name it! Vitamin E, Bio-oil, Tea Tree Oil, even a green cream designed exclusively to hide unsightly scars by blending in the colour. I also tried those instant tanning products to see if they helped hide them. No these things just don't work. I am telling you this only so you don't waste your time and money for nothing. I really believe there are only two ways now to remove or disguise the scars. -tatoos (to disguise) -plastic or laser surgery (to remove) These are not my preferences either! I'm not sure they can tattoo over scars but I am going to find out. Plastic or laser surgery is probably expensive but it is another option that might be possible. I know how difficult it can be. In the hot weather I love to wear short sleeves, so I wear lots of bracelets, some very wide bracelets with a lot of thinner ones. I also wear those athletic tight fitting tennis or sports wrists bands. With scimpy tank tops, I wear an open long sleeve shirt. I sometimes wear those long open fingered gloves, that go up just before the elbow. There are winter ones made of knit and summer ones made of lace, rayon or cotton. They are in fashion now too which helps. I use to wear them before they were in fashion just because they were perfect to use. I do hope I have been helpful in some way. I think maybe you should look into tattoos, I would rather have people stare at my tattoo since they are going to stare one way or another. I also won't be upsetting those close to me who don't want to see the scars of the past. Good Luck To You. Answered by Sheron Foutch 1 month ago.

Personally, I think you should tell people that you used to hurt yourself but your over it and getting on with your life now. This is probally the worst advice ever but if you are still in school i wouldn't show anybody. Kids at school are bastards and it might trigger you to cut more. To get rid of scars you can use bio oil. If thats not an option you can buy bands or fishnet gloves that come up your arm, or even arm warmers. I know how bad it is trust me and i learnt the hard way when my friends saw my arm and basically shouted it out infront of the whole class.If you feel you can't stop it sounds so cliche but ask for help. Even if it's just talking to your best friend or something. I hope your ok now :( Lots of loveee! Charlotte x Answered by Sherika Mauk 1 month ago.

well, when you first make them, if they're small enough, pull together your skin and try to fuse it together, holing it together with a piece of tape. If it' really bad, from experience i can tell you, to go far away or to a large city where theres too many people to remember just one(i.e. nyc ect) and go to a free clinic or ER and get stitches. As for the scars, i made up a BRILLIANT plan. I have a really mild case of excema(almost everyone does) and i scratched the living daylights out of my legs. Then I went to a dermatoligist. I got drugged up to get rid of the infection that had grown on my legs from the sores that I had inflicted upon myself, creme to heal it. Then there were scars left over, so she prescribed me a really strong tube of scar remover Now every time I think there are too many scars (or for some oddly hopeful moments where I think i can pull out of thi and making the scars go away so i cant see them nd get better) and they're too noticeable. Are people kind of iffy weather you d this or not? I'm stereotyped into doing this kind of stuff because of the music i listen to and people were starting to . get the idea that I did do it, i couldnt lt them think that! Play on humans stupidity and wear short sleeves, throws them off, only wear jackets andsuch if it really bad (like you JUST got the stitches) Make-up usually works, but i only use that if i can see it through the corner of my eye wear one of thosething that they Slashing sucks, all I can say is stop if you can, you sound like this is kinda new to you, so stop while your ahead. Good luck, and try to stop if it's possible, or you'll be stuck with it for life (i.e. me) Answered by Dexter Mullahey 1 month ago.

Yer i use to do that too, i stopped the minute i went on holiday to Italy my life sort of changed there and then i was out there for 2 months and thought life is for living to the full not for sitting around feeling sorry for my self and cutting myself. It is a horrible thing, i did it when i got upset and i have these scars on my arms and the look awful. I try covering them up but now i just think to my self big mistake, i am over that. Just be prude that you have stopped and do not care what people think of it. Just say to them "Well at least i ave stopped" You can try this cream i got at the pharmacy it is meant to stop them from showing so much and helps them fade. It worked for some of mine. HOPE THIS HELPED! Glad you have stopped though. Answered by Collette Bimler 1 month ago.

try rubbing tea tree oil on the scars each night before you go to bed. it takes a while of doing it consistently but eventually the scar tissue will begin to break down. just be careful not to spill the tea tree oil - it's got a very pungent smell that will permeate any surface and doesn't fade!

Use Bio Oil. It's excellent for removing scars and getting them back to their natural state. Hope this helps. x Answered by Chanda Colander 1 month ago.

no, there is scar cream you can get, but scars like that would be hard to cover. maybe you should of thought of that b4 you started cutting yourself. Answered by Bebe Souder 1 month ago.
