Bacitracin is a very effective topical used in first aid to help prevent infection in minor cuts, scrapes, and burns.
Bacitracin Ointment may be used around the eye or in the eye. To use Bacitracin Ointment in the eye, first, wash your hands. Using your index finger, pull the lower eyelid away from your eye to form a pouch. Squeeze a thin strip of ointment into the pouch. After using Bacitracin Ointment, gently close your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes. Wash your hands to remove any medicine that may be on them. Wipe the applicator tip with a clean, dry tissue.
