i have been using tea tree oil for a long time.
and yea i have a little 2oz bottle that i have had for over a year and there is still about a third of it left. and i use it liberally, i dont know how i still have that same bottle.
Just dab the neosporin on the wound. I rub off any excess that gets on the skin around it. I use both, so i can't say if it helps more than tea tree or not.
Like i said, just on the wound. I actually scaped my nose a while back and put neosporin on it, and tried my best to not get it any other place. Well even just a little bit must have gotten into/onto a pore on my nose, cause i had 2 little whiteheads pop up next to the scrape. They where very minor and popped without any scaring or redness. But i beleive it sped up the healing a lot.
