Two abrasions. Same arm.

By John J., Bath, ME, Verified Reviewer

As a retired medical worker, I had the opportunity to test Curoxen versus Neosporin after my 8-year-old grandson fell off his bike this summer and had a couple of scrapes on his forearm and shoulder. My wife had recently purchased a tube of Curoxen and after cleaning all the rashes, I dressed two areas with Neosporin and two with Curoxen. I covered each area with a high quality, breathable, sterile bandage, changing the dressing and re-applying each ointment once in the morning and again at night. At the end of day two, I washed the arm and re-applied the ointments. At the end of the fourth day, the areas treated with Neosporin were noticeably more advanced in healing, had less redness and no sign of infection. The two areas treated with Curoxen continued to have a very minor infection that cleared a few days later.

Clearly, the makers of Curoxen need to spend some money on clinical trials and be more upfront about the efficacy of their one active ingredients. If someone is allergic to any of the three well-studied, active ingredients in Neosporin then, by all means, they should try Curoxen.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Runny, and stings

By Peter B., Newark, DE, Verified Reviewer

I was lured by the advertising which said it was 5x more effective at killing germs. I bought this at a drug store and was pleasantly surprised when I saw it was natural.

The reason I bought it was for a scrape on my forearm. My first impression was that it was very runny. I tried to apply some like an ointment, but it ran down my arm. I dabbed it up and made sure the wound was wet with this. The next thing I noticed was the pain! The stinging that resulted was terrible. Maybe it was some kind of allergic reaction, but I don't think so. There was no rash.

The next day I noticed an infection started. I dabbed on some more Curoxen and endured the pain. Over the next few days, the infection remained, but didn't get worse.

I'm now going back to get Neosporin, which had always worked in the past.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Relief from itching, redness and pain.

By Grace G., Seattle, WA, Verified Reviewer

Upon applying it did sting slightly because open areas of inflamed very dry red patches of skin, yet in an eight hour period redness, pain, swelling and itching had subsided 25% and redness turned to light pink. I was so thrilled, took pictures and sent them to dermatologist, naturopath doctor, all my family and friends immediately. I am hypersensitive to smells, and the smell of this product is uniquely its own yet the fact that it works is all that matters to me. Finally some relief as nothing has worked for me until now. Curoxen is a gift from heaven!

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Allergy to Curoxen

By Susan J., Concord, CA, Verified Reviewer

I got a scratch on my ankle and decided to try Curoxen as I know I am allergic to antibiotic ointments like Neosporin. Turns out I am REALLY allergic to Curoxen, and broke out in a serious rash, similar to poison oak. After two weeks the rash cleared up; however, the rash spread to my other ankle, I think from resting on the first ankle while I slept. The second rash is worse than the first one, with tiny blisters covering the entire affected area (about 4"x6"), a few larger blisters and one big blister about the size of a golf ball.

I would suggest trying the ointment on a small area first, just to be sure you aren't allergic to it. I really like the idea of it; I'm disappointed I can't use it.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
