Mycitracin Plus ointment
This medication is recommended in mixed candidal (fungal) infections. This medication is used to prevent and control pain during certain medical procedures such as inserting a tube into the mouth, nose, throat, or urinary tract (e.g., endotracheal intubation, urinary catheterization). Lidocaine jelly is also used to numb and treat inflammation of the urinary tract (urethritis).
Patients using this medication may at times experience corneal thinning, cataract, fungal infection and rise in intraocular (eye) pressure. If you experience any of these symptoms for a long period of time, consult your doctor immediately.
When Not to Use
This medication should be avoided if you are allergic to corticosteroids. Use neomycin/polymyxin B/bacitracin/lidocaine with caution during pregnancy if benefits outweigh risks. It is unknown if neomycin, polymyxin B, or bacitracin is excreted in breast milk. Systemic absorption of topical lidocaine has been reported. Pregnant or breastfeeding patients should seek advice of a health professional before using over-the-counter (OTC) drugs.
