Antimicrobial antibacterial powder Baneocin is a combination drug containing two main active ingredients (antibiotic), which, when interacting, enhance the properties of each other. Powder Baneocin is able to have a bactericidal effect.
Neomycin is the first active substance of the drug. In its range of bactericidal action is the majority of gram-negative and gram-positive microorganisms.
As for bacitracin, the second active substance of the drug, it mainly affects fusobacteria, actinomycetes, as well as gram-positive microorganisms (clostridia, staphylococci, hemolytic streptococci, etc.). Stability of the body to bacitrocin is an extreme rarity in medical practice.
It is also worth noting that Baneocin powder can not affect most fungi and viruses, for example Nacardia and Pseudomonas.
The drug used by the local route can significantly reduce the likelihood of an increased sensitivity of the patient's body to the components that make up its composition.
The drug, as a rule, is well tolerated by the body, and tissue components, blood and biological products are not capable of deactivating it. Powder Baneocin has a pleasant cooling effect and promotes the flow of natural processes of sweating.
The drug Baneocin is used for prevention and treatment:
- Multiple abscesses (ulcers) of sweat glands;
- Purulent hydradenitis;
- Carbuncles (inflamed inflammatory purulent-necrotic foci, embracing a group consisting of several sebaceous glands and hair bulbs);
- Folliculitis (the presence of inflammatory foci in the hair follicles);
- Furuncles (inflammatory processes in hair follicles with the presence of purulent accumulations);
- Impetigo (purulent lesions of the skin with the formation of crusts);
- Contagious infections of skin and mucous membranes (transmitted from an infected person to a healthy person);
- Secondary infections with a bacterial etiology;
- Chicken pox;
- Wound surfaces.
Also, the drug is used in the treatment of the following pathologies:
- Abscesses (after the procedure of their opening);
- Paronychia (inflammation, flowing in the tissues surrounding the nail plate);
- Ectima (a dermatological disease characterized by pustular skin rashes with deep ulceration in the center);
- Secondary infections (eczema, ulcers, dermatoses);
- Mastitis (inflammatory processes that occur in the mammary ducts of the mammary glands);
- ENT diseases;
- Film dermatitis, having a bacterial origin, as well as umbilical infections (in childhood).
Baneocin is also used in the following procedures:
- Cosmetic (transplantation and transplantation of skin, ear lobe piercing, etc.);
- Episiotomy (postoperative therapy after dissecting the perineum in the process of labor to prevent its rupture);
- Laporotomy (after surgical opening of the abdominal cavity).
- The presence of end-to-end defects of the tympanic membrane (if the drug is used to treat the external auditory canal).
- Violations of the vestibular and cochlear systems (if there is a probability of increasing systemic absorption of the drug).
- Extensive area of affected skin.
- Individual intolerance to the components that make up Baneocin.
Use the drug only after consulting a doctor recommended to people who have a place:
- Acidification of blood (acidosis);
- Propensity to allergic reactions;
- Muscle weakness (myasthenia gravis);
- Any disturbance of the work of the neuromuscular apparatus, since there is a high risk of the development of neuromuscular conduction disorders. As for the neuromuscular blockade, it can be stopped by taking drugs such as Proserin or calcium supplements.
Pregnancy and lactemia
In these periods, the drug should be used with caution and only after consulting with the appropriate specialist. After all, neomycin, which is part of the powder, like all antibiotics of the aminoglycoside series, can freely penetrate the placental barrier - from the mother's body to the fetus.
Possible side effects
In most cases, the drug is well tolerated by the body. But sometimes there may be a side effect of Baneocin in the form of:
- Systemic effects (malfunctions of neuromuscular conduction, as well as ototoxic and nephrotoxic effects);
- Allergic reactions. In almost half of the cases, contact type eczema occurs. Also may be present: dryness, itching, redness and various rashes on the skin.
To date, there have been no known cases of drug overdose.
Dosage and methods of administration
Before using the drug, experts recommend determining the degree of sensitivity of the microflora of the affected area to the powder. To do this, apply a powder to a small area of the wound surface, wait about 5 minutes and evaluate the reaction. If appropriate, it is permissible to use a bandage that increases the effectiveness of the drug.
The powder is applied from 2 to 4 times a day. This dosage is intended for both adults and children. In this case, the daily dose of the powder used should not exceed 1 g. The drug is recommended to be treated with courses. Each course should consist of 7 days. Break - 10 days. During the second course, the dose of the drug should be reduced by half.
If the use of Baneocin powder is prescribed to a patient with burns that occupy 20% or more of the entire area of the skin, the drug should be used no more than 1 time per day.
If the powder is used by a woman during lactation, care should be taken to ensure that the powder remains thoroughly washed before breastfeeding. To do this, it is recommended to use a sterile cotton wool soaked in boiled water.
Patients with functional disorders of the kidneys and liver, before and during the intensive therapy with the use of Baneocin powder, it is necessary to conduct blood, urine and ear acuity tests (audiometric analysis).
If the drug is used to treat otitis or dermatoses that occur in chronic form, it should be remembered that Baneocin promotes sensitization (increased sensitivity) of the organism to components of other medications, including neomycin.
If Baneocin is used in combination with furosemide or ethacrynic acid, nephrotic and ototoxic effects may occur.
If the patient has systemic absorption, the simultaneous use of Baneocin with aminoglycoside antibiotics and cephalosporins can lead to the development of toxic effects.
Such a complication, as a neuromuscular blockade, can arise due to the use of Baneocin together:
- With muscle relaxants;
- With anesthetics;
- With opioid analgesics.
The drug is allowed to go without a prescription.
