TV ads sway people to use products that are simply not the best for them to use in certain situations. As a microbiologist, let me explain and suggest an alternative:
Ads encourage folks to use antibiotic-containing cremes and ointments for almost every scratch, cut and itch that occurs. Unfortunately, doing this encourages antibioitic resistance by bacteria. Too, although such agents do kill or inhibit many bacteria, they seldom contain agents that affect the yeast that can grow when normal bacteria are removed--the yeast that causes thrush or "yeast infection".
A MUCH BETTER alternative is to use Povidone Iodine ointment. Povidone Iodine is the active ingredient in Betadine and other similar surgical scrubs, and it releass iodine when used. Unlike the antibiotics used in OTC ointments, iodine kills all bacteria AND also kills the yeast that can overgrow. Povidone Iodine ointment literally CAN'T be overused, as no microbial resistance to it has ever been documented.
So, instead of "Thinking antibiotic", THINK POVIDONE IODINE! (By the way, old tincture of iodine works similarly and is equally effective!!)

I find this product difficult to locate at local pharmacies (some e.g. our local Walmart and Walgreens will not even order it) yet it seems to be the better antibiotic for small wounds. In my families experience the providone iodine ointment(generic Betadine) is superior to Neosporin, Polysporin or Bacitracin ointments and unlike the Betadine solution it is easy to use with a band-aid. Our experience is quicker healing and less scarring. The only drawback is the color, if your sensitive to iodine, and possible staining. Useful to have in your first aid kit.

I have used povidone iodine ointment for several years to heal occasional cuts or scratches which appear to have a small infection susceptibility. Not available at local pharmacy. Actually priced better online.

I love the product I have used it for years, sometimes its hard to find. One tub can last me more then a year so to buy three at once would be a little crazy. So when I saw I could by one for a little more then $2.00 I though that was great. It was only supposed to cost about three dollars shipping. It ended up being eight something for the shipping. And took a month to get here. I guess I should have gotten the three tubs for twelve buck.

my dog has sores that pop all over and 1 have spent at least on $300 trying the diff. products in the pet section with no real success. In desperation I decided to try putting this iodine ointment on his wart-like lesions. for the first time in 5 years they are healing. it also is helping hold infection at bay, and doesnt leave the mess you would expect in dog hair.
I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars because it is a gluey drippy consistency that is very difficult to work with right out of the bottle, let alone applying thru dog hair. it is bright red and does stain.

Non-stinging, fast acting antiseptic, the same stuff we used to use to prep patients in the OR, except this stays in place without running all over. I couldn't believe it didn't sting!

I can't find iodine ointment in pharmacies anymore so I was thrilled to find it on Amazon. It works better for cuts and scrapes than other ointments in my opinion. I don't know if it is just in my head or not but when I first used it years ago I noticed a difference in healing time - and I had no expectations then.

Shipping was quick and the packaging was small enough to fit in my mailbox (no extra trips for pick up). I will be ordering as long as it is on the market.

This was bought for the treatment of my wife's diabetic foot ulcers. This is what the Doctor uses. It is exactly the same product that sells for $12.99 at CVS.

I would recommend this. Please, check with your Doctor before using this!
