Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
The use of ointment that you submit contains chlorampenicol and hydrocotrisone. Chlorampenicol is a type of antibiotic with the FDA category of C which is to be given with consideration that the benefits obtained are higher than the risks that the patient may experience.
As for hydrocortisone, it has anti-inflammatory properties, which is also classified as a category of drug category C.
So that in general, the drug that you use is categorized as C, which is given by the doctor when the benefits are considered higher. So the use should be consulted with a doctor, especially a dermatologist.
In addition, the things experienced by the mother should be ascertained by checking whether the true cause by bacteria because if by bacteria then the use of antibiotics is appropriate but if other causes are experienced such as fungi then what is needed is anti-fungal
