    I had a biopsy on basal cell skin cancer on the left side of my nose. I used Neosporin daily for 5 days. The area around the wound began to blister. I discontinued use and the area seems to be improving. If you use this product for conditions similar to mine, use caution.

    I had a basal cell scraping and had an allergic reaction to Bacitracin in the past, so I used Neosporin and had a terrible reaction. Red bumps that oozed and continued up my arms and went to the left hand & arm also. Got it in my eyes and the reaction was red eyes and much swelling. Visits to the Optomitrist and Dermatologist was needed.
