Comment:
Just had an eye biopsy done on two parts of my eye. I have stitches inside my eye and on part of my eyelid. I was given this ointment to put on it, twice a day. I have to say - ease of use hasn't been great. I'm supposed to drip this into my eye but half the time it just ends up on my face and eyelashes instead. My eye is sore and feels weird from the biopsy, and I guess this stuff kind ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
On a few occasions my Doctor has prescribed this for use in my ears when a oral antibiotic is not effective. It will penetrate into your inner ear and kill bacteria that are anaerobic.

If I feel even a hint of my ears start ... Show Full Comment

As with everything else there is conflicting information online. I do not want to cause any further damage to my hea ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was prescribed this after I'd had an iodine plaque put in and removed from my left eye. Up until I was prescribed the ointment I'd been taking the Tobradex drops, but a stitch was starting to come out of the scar and make it very sore, so they prescribed the ointment as a way (I guess) of speeding up the healing. It hasn't been sore since. I can move my eye around in all directions w ... Show Full Comment
