This sounds like a fissure.
You would need to completely soften the stool
A product called Colon Care by Twin Lab is excellent.
Sit in hot water 23 time a day for 20 minutes
Get a .2 % nitroglycerin cream and this will reduce tension on the anal sphincter.
You can continue the neosporin

If not better in a week or 2 then see a GI doctor
good luck
