No evidence for the use of topical antibiotic that I am aware of, nor can I recall seeing/hearing of anyone using it where I am at. So I would be interested in seeing evidence as well, if anyone has any.
Will not use topical antibiotics for this indication unless I see good evidence for it.

> Very interested in above statement not to use antibiotic ointment over absorbables. Is there any evidence? Experience from others?
