Abstract: The use of topical triple-antibiotic ointments significantly decreases infection rates in minor contaminated wounds compared with a petrolatum control. Plain petrolatum ointment is equivalent to triple-antibiotic ointments for sterile wounds as a post- procedure wound dressing (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, based on randomized controlled trials [RCTs]).
