Chlorsig contains chloramphenicol, a synthetic antibiotic, as the active ingredient. Chlorsig is available as eye drops and eye ointment, for external use only. It is used to treat an eye infection called bacterial conjunctivitis, which is a bacterial infection involving the mucous membrane of the surface of the eye.


For adults and children (2 years and over): Apply 1.5cm into lower eye lid of the affected eye every three hours for up to 5 days. If ointment is used together with drops for day and night coverage, 1.5cm should be applied before bedtime, while using the drops during the day. To minimise contamination do not allow the tip to contact the surface of the eye. Chlorsig is not recommended for children under 2 years except on medical advice. Treatment should be continued for at least 48 hours after the eye appears normal. The systemic absorption of CHLORSIG EYE DROPS can be minimised by applying gentle pressure on the tear-duct for approximately one minute immediately after application.


CHLORSIG eye ointment contains:

Active Ingredient: Chloramphenicol (10 mg/g)

Excipients: Paraffin – liquid ƒ Paraffin – soft white ƒ Wool fat
