Maxitrol

This is a combination of neomycin/polymyxin (antibiotics) and dexamethasone (a mild steroid).  This antibiotic combination comes in both drop and ointment forms and is useful for mild infection or inflammation such as blepharitis. Some people are sensitive to the neomycin and may require more expensive alternative drugs like Tobradex or Zylet. Maxitrol is generic and on the $4 generic list at Walmart.
