For the treatment of bacterial ocular inflammation that also requires steroid treatment. Practically, this is not the first line in the treatment of pediatric ocular inflammation but certainly serves as the second line after the doctor’s examination.
Ingredients: Three ingredients - two antibiotics called Neomycin and Polymyxin B and a steroid called Dexamethasone.
How to use:
Topical treatment by ointment will be given up to 3 times a day. The treatment with drops is usually in a dose of two drops to the patient’s eye, three times a day.
Highly potent treatment for conjunctivitis, two antibiotics and a steroid.
The main side effects are related to the fact that this ointment contains a steroid and therefore should not be treated for more than a few days in a row. It should also be avoided if an eye infection with herpes viruse is suspected.
Another word from the doctor:
