Iz - Your doctor undoubtedly meant for you to use the Neosporin Ophthalmic Solution (neomycin and polymyxin B sulfates and gramicidin ophthalmic solution) which is a sterile antimicrobial solution for ophthalmic use. It contains neomycin, polymyxin B, and gramicidin. A wide range of antibacterial action is provided by the overlapping spectra of neomycin, polymyxin B sulfate, and gramicidin. Neosporin Ophthalmic Solution is indicated for the topical treatment of superficial infections of the external eye and its adnexa caused by susceptible bacteria. Such infections encompass conjunctivitis, keratitis and keratoconjunctivitis, blepharitis and blepharoconjunctivitis. A stye, or hordeolum, is a small bump that can appear on the outside or inside of the eyelid. A stye develops from an eyelash follicle or an eyelid oil gland that becomes clogged from excess oil, debris or bacteria. Styes seem to be brought on by increased stress, but can also be a complication of another condition, called blepharitis. Answered by Winfred Bizzaro 5 months ago.
Stys can have different causes. some are caused by the oil in your skin plugging a pore. No antibiotic will help that. There are specific antibiotic ointments that are made for use around the eye. They will say that they are an ophthalmic ointment. Unless bacteria is infecting the sty, the only benefit is that you will feel treated, that is, a band aid would work as well.. Were I you, I would probably try a warm compress first for a day or so. The link below will give you additional information on ophthalmic antibiotic ointments.

Will the thimerosal-containing, pregnancy category C eye drops I used for 19 days hurt my unborn baby?

I am 7 weeks pregnant and have been using some Bausch & Lomb eye drops called "Neomycin and Polymyxin B Sulfates and Gramicidin Ophthalmic Solution USP" for the past 19 days. I got the drops from my doctor, prior to knowing I was pregnant, in order to treat pink eye (conjunctivitis). The drops are prescription and were to be used for 5-7 days. My infection was not gone after 7 days so, figuring that I must have re-infected my eyes by using the same eye make-up I had prior to the infection, I continued to take the drops for another 12 days (stupid, I know). Finally, this morning, my eyes were hurting and my vision was blurry. I came to the conclusion that the drops just were not working, even with my not wearing eye make-up. I started doing research on the drops and whether taking them for too long could result in the pink eye bacteria becoming resistant to the antibiotic. In my research, I was horrified to discover that the I drops I was taking were listed as a category c pregnancy medication... meaning that there are not enough scientific studies on the medications’ effect on a pregnant woman and her fetus to determine its safety during pregnancy. Even worse, I discovered that the drops contain Thimerosal, a mercury-containing preservative that has been linked to Autism. My oldest son has autism and I have been vigilantly avoiding any Thimerosal containing vaccines, etc. with both of my sons since finding out my oldest son's diagnosis. I am so very sickened by this situation and worried about the health of my unborn baby. I am really hoping that someone can give me some hope. Please help! Thanks in advance.

The majority of drug in the eye drop will stay in the eye. Only a tiny amount will be absorbed into the blood, if any. Secondly, there is no evidence that thimerosal causes autism. The only evidence out there shows thimerosal might actually lower the incidence of autism. People like to ignore the study which showed autism rates in countries which thimerosal free vaccines have higher rates of autism than in countries with thimerosal vaccines. The majority of drugs are category C. The way we determine if a drug is a tetragen is through studies with rats and in cases where pregnant women take the drug. There are no trials with pregnant women because it is unethical. They gave you an old antibiotic eye drop. If there were any issues with it; it would have come out by now. It is way safer to have given you the eye drops than a regular oral antibiotic. Answered by Calvin Schiermeier 5 months ago.

A red area of skin on your nose that does not heal could be "sun damage" or an early form of skin cancer. You need to see a physician. Don't mess around with this. Answered by Brunilda Kmet 5 months ago.
get it checked -could be cancer and antibiotics don't cure cancer. Answered by Sharee Hymer 5 months ago.
