    Neosporin on zits?

    I've heard that some of you put neosporin on after you pick, but what about if you don't but you just want to put it on a zit to kill the bacteria?

    I found that putting neosporin on my "active" pimples didn't really do much. It's the healing properties that makes neosporin so good.

    I have been using neosporin to heal pimples.
    They heal alot quicker with it, I would say about 70-80% faster. Sometimes I'll put it on one that has'nt erupted yet...but I dont think it really helps that much either.

    When I was getting nasty whiteheads (which have stopped since using B5!!!), I wouldn't pick at them at all, but just put some neosporin on them at nite... usually they were just a red spot by morning... with no "head" present on it. The red spot does last a little longer than the whitehead would have, but it's a lot easier to cover up a red spot with make-up than it is to cover up a whitehead. Hope this helps!

    I only use neosporin on zits that have popped. they heal up quickly.. I only put it on at night before I go to bed. neosporin is too greasy and it would look funny if i was walking around all day with a big glob of it on my face!
