What does this expiring date mean on drug?
Someone scratched my arm with nails, so yesterday I had two marks on. It hurt a lot. I put “Furacin, soluble dressing” cream on it which is yellow. The next morning it formed a yellow crust. I am concerned. Did I make a mistake on putting the cream? I don’t understand how it will heal since the crust is yellow (the color of the cream) so I’m thinking it is basically the cream and not the crust of the skin. So will it ever heal or will it have an ugly scar now.
It says the expiring date is 09 13. Does that mean 2013 or 2009?
