Each gram contains: polymyxin B sulfate 10,000 units, bacitracin zinc 400 units, neomycin sulfate 5 mg (equivalent to 3.5 mg neomycin base) in a white petrolatum base, q.s.

ACTIONS: Polymyxin B is one of a group of closely related substances produced by various strains of Bacillus polymyxa. The activity of polymyxin B is sharply restricted to gram-negative bacteria. Neomycin, isolated from Streptomyces fradiae, has antibacterial activity in vitro against a wide range of gram-negative and gram-positive organisms. Bacitracin, an antibiotic substance derived from cultures of Bacillus subtilis (Tracy), exerts antibacterial action in vitro against a variety of gram-positive and a few gram-negative organisms.
