Neosporin H Ointment Description:
Neosporin H Ointment is a combination of four medicines: bacitracin, hydrocortisone, neomycin and polymyxin B. Bacitracin works by preventing the formation of the bacterial protective covering which is essential for the survival of bacteria in the human body. Hydrocortisone is a steroid which blocks the release of chemical messengers that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Neomycin stops bacterial growth by preventing the synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. Polymyxin B kills bacteria by destroying the bacterial cell membrane. Together, they treat your infection effectively.
Neosporin H Ointment is used in the treatment of bacterial skin infections.
