Framycetin is an antibiotic of the aminoglycoside class similar to neomycin. Like neomycin, it has poor systemic absorption. It is used in topical preparations for infections of the skin, nose, ears, and eyes, often in combination with other antibacterial drugs and corticosteroids. It can also be used for gastrointestinal infections.
Framycetin is commonly sold as Soframycin nasal spray (for rhinitis and congested sinus) and Sofra-Tulle (Treatment of infected or potentially infected burns, wounds, ulcers and graft sites). Both of these products are distributed by ERFA Canada 2012 Inc.,
It also exists in veterinary products, as framycetin sulfate.
