Bacitracin Patient Information including How Should I Take

What should I discuss with my health care provider before receiving bacitracin injection (Bacitracin)?

Your child should not receive this medication if he or she is allergic to bacitracin.

Before receiving bacitracin injection, tell your child's doctor if the child is allergic to any drugs, or if your child has a history of kidney disease. If your child has either of these conditions, he or she may not be able to receive bacitracin, or may need dosage adjustments or special tests during treatment.

How is bacitracin injection given (Bacitracin)?

This medication is given as an injection into a muscle. A doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider will give your child this injection.

Lung infections in infants are serious conditions, and your child will most likely be kept in the hospital while being treated with bacitracin injection.

To be sure this medication is not causing harmful effects, your child's kidney function may need to be tested on a regular basis. Do not miss any scheduled visits to your doctor.

Make sure your child receives this medication for the entire length of time prescribed by the doctor. Your child's symptoms may get better before the infection is completely treated. Bacitracin injection will not treat a viral infection such as the common cold or flu.
