How it works

Tobramycin is an Aminoglycoside that prevents protein synthesis from preventing the development of bacteria. It attaches to the bacterium's proteins, rupturing the cell membrane and ultimately causing cell death.
A corticosteroid, Dexamethasone, works by preventing the body from producing certain chemical messengers that cause swelling, redness, inflammation, and other allergens, and the condition is improved.
