Welcome to JustAnswer Health...and thank you for your question. I am a verified Expert and am delighted to help you today. You can try Triple Antibiotic Ointment , which has neomycin, polymyxin B and bacitracin combined... if it does not improve quickly ( one day to see some signs of improvement) You will have to see a Doctor for an examination and effective treatment such as a prescription antibiotoc cream. I hope this information helps, please let me know if I can help you further:-)
