perfringens type D was sensitive to tetracycline, ciprofloxacin, vancomycin, kanamycin, streptomycin, gentamicin, sulfamethoxazole and erythromycin, while showed resistance against carbenicillin, amoxicillin, penicillin g, colistin sulphate, bacitracin
According to 2016 figures on allergen prevalence from the North American Contact Dermatitis Group (NACDG), allergy to the metal nickel is the most common (16%); followed by neomycin (9%); fragrance mix I, a mixture of fragrances used in allergen testing (9%); bacitracin
(8%); and myroxylon, also known as balsam of Peru, which is used for a variety of purposes in food, medicines, and fragrances (7%).
The antimicrobials tested were; Ampicillin (AMP), 10 [micro]g/dish; Amoxicillin (AMO), 10 [micro]g/dish; Bacitracin
(BAC), 10 [micro]g/dish; Cephalexin (CEF), 30 [micro]g/dish; Ceftiofur (CTF), 30 [micro]g/dish; Enrofloxacin (ENO), 5 [micro]g/dish); Gentamicin (GEN), 10 [micro]g/dish; Neomycin (NEO), 30 [micro]g/dish; Norfloxacin (NOR), 10 [micro]g/dish; Penicillin G (PEN), 10 [micro]g/dish; Tetracycline (TET), 30 [micro]g/dish and Trimethoprim (TRI), 5 [micro]g/dish.
Common causes of allergic contact dermatitis include toxicodendron plants (poison ivy, oak, and sumac; cashew nut tree; and mango), metals (nickel and gold), topical antibiotics (neomycin and bacitracin
), fragrance and Balsam of Peru, deodorant, preservatives (formaldehyde), and rubber (elastic and gloves).
The patient is advised to apply bacitracin
to the incision twice daily for 1 week.
Help the blisters heal by keeping the area clean and dry, and applying an antibacterial ointment like Bacitracin
(talk to a doc if your skin starts to look infected).
Delayed patch test reactions after 5 days include metals (gold potassium dichromate, nickel, and cobalt), topical antibiotics (neomycin and bacitracin
), and topic corticosteroids.
Broiler chicks at the age of d-1 were weighed and divided into the following four groups: corn-soy based basal diet (BD) with no supplement (control), BD supplemented with 10% zinc bacitracin
(ZnB, Hubei Yuancheng Tech.
The results of antimicrobial activity showed that pneumococci were resistant to the cefspan, septran, cravit, pipemetic acid, azomax, bacitracin
, and penicillin and a clear zone of inhibition was observed on clithromycin, optochin, cefizox, genatamycin, minocyclin, levoflaxacin, and vancomycin.

Commonly used topical agents include bacitracin
, cefazolin, ciprofloxacin, gentamycin, impenem, mupirocin, neomycin, polymyxin, retapamulin, and benzoyl peroxide.
240 1-day-old Cherry Valley ducks were randomly allocated to 2 groups with 6 replicates of 20ducks, receiving a basal diet supplemented with zinc bacitracin
(40 mg/kg diet, Control group) or Clostridium butyricum (1.0x109cfu/kg diet), for 42 days, respectively.
