usually i apply benzyol peroxide after i shower and go to bed, but i was wondering. would an anitobiotic ointment work on more severe acne that are open and prevent it from forming again.

Antibiotic ointments break down in the skin and work to keep spots at bay. In my experience the ointment does not really help spots that have already formed although it says on the leaflet 'may reduce redness of spots aswell'

I'd say that so far the ointment is alot more effective than bp for my moderate case of acne.

Antibiotic ointment is good for open wounds like popped zits or something like that to prevent infection. I don't think it would have much of an effect on a papule or whitehead though.
