      Hi,

      Are topical gel antibiotics safe?

      I tried some of the gel on my scalp for some skin irritations but rinsed it off right away after remembering antibiotics might be dangerous for hearing.

      Medicinal ingredients: Each gram contains: Polymyxin B sulfate 10,000 units, bacitracin zinc 500 units, gramicidin 0.25 mg. Non-medicinal ingredients (in alphabetical order): Vitamin E, white petrolatum.

      It should be fine.
      It's mainly high dose intravenous antibiotics so don't worry.
      Love glynis
