Customer Question

My cat rubbed against my chin and quickly there appeared a slightly infected looking area about 1/8" across. I have had this in the past, but a long time ago. Should I use a cortisone cream or bacitracin or what?

Hi Dr Stan here to help. Apply the Bacitracin twice daily after washing the area with soap and water. Do not use the Cortisone Cream. I am here to answer any additional questions you may have. I am compensated for my response only after you provide a positive rating of 3-5 stars. Thank you.
