    Neosporin: Can cause irritation

    I remember a while back, people talked about using neosporin on zits since it has antibiotics in it. Today I sliced my thumb while trying to cut open a box (stupid me), and the doctor I saw in urgent care recommended I DON'T use neosporin on my wound because usually after using neosporin for 3 days straight, most people tend to have an allergic reaction to the neomycin ingredient in it. The allergic reaction causes inflammation that makes it hard to differentiate between an infection. I guess as long as you don't use it more than 2 days in a row, it should be fine.

    Just thought I'd pass that information on
