Ofloxacin works differently to Cortisporin.
Ofloxacin is in a group of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones. Ofloxacin fights bacteria in the body. It is used to treat bacterial infections that cause bronchitis, pneumonia, chlamydia, gonorrhea, skin infections, urinary tract infections, and infections of the prostate.
Cortisporin contains hydrocortisone, neomycin, and polymyxin B.
Hydrocortisone is a steroid. It reduces the actions of chemicals in the body that cause inflammation, redness, and swelling.
Neomycin and polymyxin B are antibiotics that fight bacteria.
The combination of hydrocortisone, neomycin, and polymyxin B otic (for the ears) is used to treat ear infections caused by bacteria.
