Customer Question

I cut myself last week shaving I didn't know now it's infected and hurts I took a sits bath just now with Epsom salt should I use neosporim
JA: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: A couple of days I thought it was an ingrown hair so I was messing with it I know that was stupid. I used neosporim yesterday so it doesn't hurt anymore but I looked and it's still yellow just a little spot were I cut it i think the sweat from it being hot outside infected it

Hello

Neosporin, if there is infection is useless.

Staph bacteria is too resistant to it.

See your doctor, or any doctor, for a prescription for mupiricin, which has much better staph coverage.

Glad to look at a picture here.
