Any problems with the petroleum in neosporin, polysporin...etc

Has the white petroleum in neosporin products, and products like it, clog your pores? Please post if it led to breakouts, thanks

Thats the ingredient that stopped me from putting any of it on my face. But, people have been posting that they only put it on their whiteheads, not around the entrire infected area.

Does neosporin make a cream? Or does anyone with the same ingredients make it in a cream?

i believe so, but i don't know if the cream doesn't have comodegenic or acnegenic ingredients.

Re: Any problems with the petroleum in neosporin, polysporin...etc

I actually went to the drug store and read the ingredients of the cream and the ointment. They were both different.

*Ointment*

Active Ingredients: Each gram contains: Polymyxin B Sulfate 5,000 units, Bacitracin Zinc 400 units and Neomycin 3.5mg.

Inactive Ingredients: Also contains a base of cocoa butter*, cottonseed oil*, olive oil*, soduim pyruvate*, tocopheryl acetate* and white petrolatum.

*Cream*

Didn't contain the zinc.

Here is something I found someone posted when they reviewed Neosporin Ointment.

"Have a pimple that irritates you? I use Neosporin for those red bumps also. It works wonders for clearing up that one annoying little pimple that doesn't seem to want to go away. Just apply 3 times a day, and you will soon see that swelling mass disappear before your very eyes."
