Milia from Antibiotic Ointment
My advice to you would be to call the physician you had preform the procedure to find out how long you need to use this ointment. You may ask if you can switch to Aquaphor ointment, instead. Depending on how long ago you had your treatment, you may be able to start using a very simple cream such as Cetephil cream. It is always the best policy to check with your practitioner before changing post procedure care, and you should always express your concerns.
