Neomycins are antibiotics commonly used to treat bacterial infections in humans and animals. They are also used to inhibit the growth of certain types of fungi and parasites. Neomycins are produced by several species of Streptomyces bacteria and are among the most widely used antibiotics for Gram-positive bacteria. They are effective against a range of infections including those caused by Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus. Neomycins have a low risk of side effects and are relatively safe to use. They are used in topical creams to treat skin infections, and in eye drops to treat infections of the eye. Neomycins are an important tool in treating bacterial infections, as they can help to prevent the spread of disease.
