Cortecycline eye ointment is a prescription medicine available for use as an ointment. It is primarily used to treat a wide range of bacterial infections. It is an antibiotic drug that stops the growth of the bacteria responsible for causing the infection. It helps to relieve symptoms such as pain, itchiness, or soreness caused due to bacterial infection. Cortecycline eye ointment combines two active ingredients: tetracycline and hydrocortisone. Tetracycline is an antibiotic drug which stops bacterial growth by preventing the synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to perform vital body functions. Hydrocortisone is a steroid drug that blocks the production of certain chemical messengers called prostaglandins in the body, making the eye red, itchy, and swollen.
