Soframycin

What is Soframycin?

Neomycin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic found in many topical medications such as creams, ointments, and eyedrops. The discovery of neomycin dates back to 1949. It was discovered in the lab of Selman Waksman, who was later awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1951. Neomycin belongs to aminoglycoside class of antibiotics that contain two or more aminosugars connected by glycosidic bonds. Due to the inherent oto- and nephrotoxicity of these substances, systemic use has declined, as safer alternatives have become available.

Hello. I am a 16 year old girl, and I got my belly button pierced about a month ago. A few days ago, I formed a red, itchy rash and bumps inside and around my navel and piercing. I went to the doctor, and he said it was because I was allergic to the metal. I have since taken the ring out, and I was wondering if it could be something else. I don t think it was an allergic reaction to the metal, because my body didn t react until about a month later. Also, the rash spread to my neck and face. Any idea of what this could possibly be?
