When I used the famous yellow-packaged brand of triple antibiotic ointment, my skin would itch. My doctor told me that I have a sensitivity to neomycin, which is one of the ingredients in the famous brand. This polysporin has 2 of the 3 antibiotics found in the famous brand, but without the irritating neomycin. It's the only antibiotic ointment we keep around the house now. Works like a charm and no itching!

Safest and Effective, but Pricey

This is a good double antibiotic ointment, with no added pain reliever or neomycin which can both cause further irritation to some people's skin. It is pricey however.

Comments about Polysporin First Aid Antibiotic Ointment, 1 oz:

I have used this product before and found that it works very well. Polysporin is compatisble to Neosporin. It is very easy to use and you Do Not need to use that much on the wound.

        I had allergic reaction to Neosporin (hives & itching). My dermatologist told me that other patients also had allergies to Neosporin. He agrees with me in recommending Polysporin to promote healing.

            Recommended by a doctor after a procedure as the only thing she wanted me to use even though I had other things available.

            I keep it around for my grandchildren and myself for any cuts or wounds.

                I only bought this because of one of the Reviews. Thanks who ever you are. I would never buy Neosporin again. Had been using it on a wound and it would not heal. Three days with Polysporin and it is healed !
