Health Facts about Original Bacitraycin Plus®:
Bacitracin: Bacitracin was first discovered in 1945 by Dr. John T. Goorley. Dr. Goorley applied it on a bacillus (bacterial wound) on a patient named Tracy. He found that it was effective topically as a skin antibiotic preparation. Dr. Goorley named this compound “bacitracin.” Bacitracin was approved by the FDA in 1948. In 2003, it was named Allergen of the Year by the American Contact Dermatitis Association. Original Bacitraycin Plus® and Maximum Strength Bacitraycin Plus® (both with Moisturizing Aloe) are the only national brands of bacitracin ointment in the U.S. today.
Tattoos: Original Bacitraycin Plus® is recommended as an aftercare antibiotic on tattoos. It is preferred over combination products such as Polysporin®, Neosporin®, and Triple Antibiotics because it has fewer antibiotic ingredients, which lowers the risk of allergic reactions.
Infections:An infection can occur when microscopic parasites or bacteria attack an open wound, burn, or scrape on the skin. These can be quite painful and might lead to additional complications. The most common product used to fight these bacteria is called an antibiotic. Antibiotics work by slowing down the multiplication of bacteria or killing them entirely while helping the wound to heal. Original Bacitraycin Plus® is the only national brand single antibiotic on the market today.Original Bacitraycin Plus® is marketed to the consumer who wants the quality of a national brand product that costs 30-40% less than other national brand first aid ointments.
