Neosporin wont make it redder... but mainly just leave it alone. The redness will go down with time.

Try putting ice on top of it for a few minutes. It helps reduce the inflammation. I would also take Advil or some anti-inflammatory (OTC) over the counter medication.

I used Regenerist Serum on a huge cystic-like pimple I messed w/ on my chin and it reduced the size and the redness in 2 days. I'd be curious to see if it works for you.
