How old is your topical antiobiotic?

Spring cleaning is not far away. Before you start cleaning out your home, why not start in your medicine cabinet. Expiration dates are posted on all medicinal supplies, and this includes something you may not think of which is topical antibiotics.

I found myself checking my tube of ointment and was shocked to see it expired three years ago! One might think that it is an item we do not use regularly, and you may just be saving it for a time when needed. This idea is as good as keeping sunblock beyond the expiration date, you are taking a risk that it has lost it's effectiveness. Now is the time to stock up on NEOSPORIN® + Pain Relief Ointment, NEOSPORIN® + Pain Relief Cream, and the newly available NEOSPORIN® NEO TO GO!® First Aid Antiseptic/Pain Relieving Spray, which can travel with you and your family as a convenient and on-the-go way to clean and disinfect minor cuts, while both products help provide temporary relief of pain and help prevent infections in minor cuts, scrapes and burns.

I know what your thinking.....we are in winter mode, just had a big snow storm plow through here in the New England area and cannot imagine signs of spring coming in a few more weeks. Why would you need to be purchasing a product like this? Well, it only takes one sunny day, 60 plus degrees for you and your kids to get that 'Spring Fever' and out riding bikes, running in the play ground or even in the back yard. My daughter is just getting the idea of if she gets a 'boo boo', she wants me to kiss it to make it feel better. Now I have to completely think beyond this easy way of making her feel better and will now carry we me the NEOSPORIN® NEO TO GO!® First Aid Antiseptic/Pain Relieving Spray. I do not think you can get any more convenient than this product to protect against minor cuts and scrapes that can become contaminated with dirt and germs, which may cause infection.
So I challenge you......tell me how old your tube of antibiotic topical cream is? Is it older than mine?
