You can put neosporin on her paw but she will essentially just lick it off and it won't really do any good and in some instances it can actually be worse because they try so hard to clean the substance off that they cause more injury to themselves.

If you want to let me know what is going on with her foot I might be able to assist you in an alternative treatment.
