When Mom Central and Johnson’s offered an opportunity to blog about Neosporin, I eagerly volunteered. Having moved three times in two years, I had to examine the contents of our bathroom cabinets more than I truly cared. It’s amazing the number of ten-year-old prescriptions, half bottles of cold medicine in what I hoped was it’s original color, and tubes of ointment that were barely recognizable. Shameful. But, and unfortunately, I’m not alone.
It turns out that 40% of homes have an expired topical antibiotic in the medicine cabinet, an important issue as some products may lose their effectiveness once they reach their expiration date. The folks at NEOSPORIN® invite you to investigate your first aid supplies and share just how old your tubes of NEOSPORIN® are. We bet you might be surprised at some of the dates, so check the expiration date on your tubes. Neosporin is as essential for those boo-boos as bandages and Mommy kisses.
