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
