neosporin is nothing but trouble for me

Well I tried to speed up the healing process of my acne by rubbing in a little bit of neospoin. By the morning, however, I had painful red blotches on my face that burn. The acne is gone, but only because it is covered with this giant red, painful, areas that the neosporin had been!! It looks awful :/ but maybe serves me right for trying to rush things??

I've been puting on Eucerin Intensive Skin Repair lotion and aloe plant. Is there anything else I can do to soothe this skin irritation?

eeeks...it sounds like you may have an allergy to neomycin. I'm so sorry that happened to you...I would never use it again and if it doesn't improve within a few days you may want to see a doctor. I hope it clears up for you soon-this sounds like what happened to another girl who tried it and had an allergy to neomycin. It's not very common but it happens... :( good luck.

Do you recall how long it took for it to heal? It is about day2 for me and gettiing slightly better, but still tender and red.
