Where to buy Sofracort ?

Indications

Sofracort is actually a mixture of two medicines (to be more precise - of two antibiotics: Gramicidin and Framycetin and an anti-inflammatory medical product called Dexamethasone). This means that a therapy with Sofracort serves 2 purposes. Therefore, while the anti-inflammatory part of Sofracort helps to reduce symptoms such as inflammation and swelling (that affect the patient's eye and / or ear), the combination of antibiotics manages to effectively kill the bacteria that has lead to the appearance of the irritation (of the eye and / or of the ear).
A therapy with Sofracort can aid patients who are suffering from both eye and / or ear medical conditions. For example, physicians often prescribe patients who are suffering from an external ear infection (also commonly called otitis externa) a therapy with Sofracort. Eye doctors also consider Sofracort one of the main medicines of choice in the therapy of some eye medical disorders (infection that affects the front part of the eye that is accompanied by inflammation).
