Can You Take Medicine And Drops Together Or Not?

Hello Annie, thanks for asking.
The eye drops you mentioned contain dexamethasone (as an anti-inflammatory), neomycin and polymixin (as an antibiotic). These eye drops are intended to treat eye infections caused by bacteria. Eye infections can be in the form of conjunctivitis, keratitis, scleritis, uveitis, and so on. Make sure you get this medicine after consulting a doctor. Do not use any medicine that contains antibiotics, without the advice of a doctor. This is to avoid side effects such as allergies and avoid the occurrence of bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics due to improper use.
Eye drops are local and topical, so when used in the right dose, the systemic effect should be small. Then you may give paracetamol to your child, as long as it matches the dose with the child's weight. The thing you need to pay attention to is, make sure there are no other symptoms. Why? because eye infections don't usually cause fever. If other symptoms arise such as a cold cough, sore throat, red rash on the skin, then your child may have a systemic viral infection, and eye pain can be one of the symptoms of a systemic infection. Consult a doctor if indeed you find these systemic symptoms.
Hopefully this answer can help you. Regards.
