What is the Neosporin Cream/Ointment everyone is using?

Recommended Posts

There are a couple of Neosporin products are all pretty similar so could anyone tell me the full name of the one everyone is using to spot treat/speed up the healing process.

Ta!

I didn't know there was more than one kind of Neosporin. As you know that's a brand name. You can get a generic brand that is the same thing. It's simply a triple antibiotic ointment, I believe.

Except not the ointment. You want the cream.

Is it the Neosporin Plus Pain Relief Cream? Right one?

TIA.

Yes thats it, just make sure you dont get Ointment.

Ointment works fine for me. Beats me what all the fuss is about, but the board concensus seems to be that I'm using the wrong stuff. Either way, it works.

yes, the cream. the ointment has several comedogenic ingredients in it including i believe cocoa butter. although some people have not experienced breakouts on the oinment it certainly has the potential to cause breakouts since it has pore clogging ingredients in it. i would opt for the cream.
