Hi yena;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The ointment to be used for eye has specifically written words like --eye ointment on it .If it is not written on it then please consult the doctor with the ointment and let him see if it can be applied in the eye.Without personal consultation please do not use any such ointment if eye ointment is not written on it.

I was prescribed Fucidin 2percent ointment. The pharmacy didn t attach instructions from my doctor where to use it. I went to my Dr. With a yeast infection and sores in my nose. I just read not to use this in your nose. I was also given a prescription for Lotriderm cream, this one must be for the yeast infection, I m confused. Can you help. Thank you.
