FOLLOW UP- SLOW-HEALING SPLIT LIP
Another consideration in the case of the boy with a split lip that wouldn’t heal (Item 99-6) is an allergic reaction to the continued use of bacitracin/ neomycin/polymyxin B cream (Neosporin). A number of my patients have used Neosporin first, only to come in later with worsening symptoms. Once they stop using the cream, the reaction ends.
