Introduction

Supirocin-B Plus Ointment is a combination medicine used in the treatment of bacterial skin infections. It works by stopping the growth of microorganisms that cause the infection. It also blocks the production of certain chemical messengers that make the affected area red, swollen and itchy.

Supirocin-B Plus Ointment is meant for external use only. It should be applied only to the affected area of the skin as per the dosage and schedule prescribed by your doctor. In order to get the most benefit, apply it regularly and preferably at the same time each day. Do not use larger amounts or apply it more often or for a longer duration than directed. This will only increase the risk of side effects. Avoid any contact with your eyes, nose or mouth. Rinse it off with water if you accidentally get the medicine in these areas.

The most common side effects of this medicine include application site reactions like burning, irritation, itching, and redness. These are usually mild but let your doctor know if they bother you or last more than a few days.

It is not likely that other medicines you take by mouth or injection will affect the way this medicine works, but talk to your doctor before using it if you have recently used another medicine for the infection. The medicine is not recommended for pregnant women. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should consult their doctors before using this medicine.
