Thank you

I actually have used regular Neosporin on pimples before, but not consistently, as I hated the greasiness. Thanks to the previous reviews, I tried this cream, which is SO much better - totally non-greasy, I can even apply it over large patches of skin, if neccessary. The trick of using a little round band-aid over the Neosporin'd zit overnight is a great suggestion. Heals those nasty huge red inflamed ones right up. Use this if you're prone to acne. It will take some of the misery out of dealing with it.

Have it on my bathroom counter all the time

Definitely a lifesaver for scabs and scars that are left over from pimples. I wouldn't say that Neo should be used on acne, but the aftermath of our acne is when this thing should be broken out. Really speeds up the healing process and is smooth, not irritating and stays on for a while. Always have one on hand!

READ THIS FIRST!!!

This ointment is amazing at healing acne, but DO NOT use this as an acne treatment. Let me tell you why. If you use this ointment frequently or over large areas of the body (i.e. all over your face), it messes with your skin's natural bacteria communities (notice the warnings on the tube). It can also cause bacterial resistance in the "bad" bacteria on your face. The reason why this ointment works is not due to the fact that it is an antibiotic or a pain reliever. The secret is in the inactive ingredient: white petrolatum. This is basically a form of petroleum jelly (a.k.a Vaseline). Its emollient properties form a barrier to protect skin and keep it moisturized, which is why it helps your acne heal much faster than normal. A lot of people also claim that it helps prevent and reduce scarring. When I was growing up, I always thought petroleum jelly would clog up all the pores on my face, so I never even gave it a chance. However, white petrolatum has been thoroughly researched and proven to be non-comedogenic. Feel free to look at the reviews for Vaseline on this website. If you are interested in buying Vaseline or another brand of petroleum jelly, make sure to check the ingredients for white petrolatum. My recommendation for use is to use this at night before bed. Make sure to wash your face first, and remember that you don't have to use a lot. Best wishes!

i have been using Vaseline on pimples for yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeears. It has NEVER caused problems for me and it also has never worked as spectacularly as Neosporin. Don't come on here writing about stuff that you read. I know because I have tried them both. You have no idea what you are talking about because you have never used them.

Perfect for scabs!

I'm a compulsive pimple-popper and scab-picker, and this is the only thing that has EVER cleared up my scabs and scars. Plus it has a nice moisturizing side-effect. Will heal a gaping red scab overnight! I prefer the cream neosporin because it absorbs into my skin better than the ointment. However, if I apply too much to clear skin, it can trap my facial sweat/oil and cause a small breakout.

Necessary.

I don't have full-blown acne, but I do get 1-4 hormonal cysts a month. They don't last very long, but they ALWAYS leave terrible hyper-pigmentation. I'm very pale, and my skin is slow to heal - the smallest cut will scar. My cysts don't even have to form whiteheads to scar; just the redness will turn brown and stay on my face for months. Even peels don't help. I used this a few weeks ago for the first time and was shocked that I hadn't tried it before' Neosporin works wonders on cuts for me; why hadn't I tried it on facial scars? After using too much BP on a cyst which left it red and scaly, I applied Neosporin to the spot overnight. The next day was amazing - the healing process had sped up ten-fold, and a dry piece of brown skin just slid off the spot, revealing a fresh layer of only slightly pigmented skin. I applied raw honey for the next few days - now, there's absolutely NO remaining pigmentation. Just fantastic.

Reduces swelling Helps heal cystic acne Prevents infection Doesn't dry out skin Low risk of allergic reaction Dose not bring pimples to a head or unclog pores. Only heals infection and prevents spreading/clusters. A must have for when I am having hormonal cystic breakouts. I use it as my moisturizer for a few days and it heals my skin.

heals pimples and scabs doesn't dry out skin clear gel doesn't stain looks oily rubs off easily (if I use it at night, I have to put on a band-aid) This is the best treatment I know for popped pimples and the resulting scabs. I don't use it regularly as prevention but it's great for treatment of existing wounds. I know it's much better to leave them alone but sometimes I just can't and when I'm left with a scab, this is what I use to heal it. My skin is very prone to scarring and this seems to help prevents scars as much as possible. I keep applying it 3+ times a day, including with a band-aid for overnight, until 2-3 days after the redness/infected look has gone, then I switch to vitamin E oil to heal the scab.

-Skin felt soft after it was absorbed -Diminished Redness of popped pimples or areas that were picked at -Healed Broken skin and open wounds twice as fast -Soothing on irritated skin -Reduces the look of Acne scars -Looks Greasy (just use it at home) If your a picker, or you just can't help but to pop that ugly zit, this is for you!! I have good skin. I don't breakout, I don't have a ton of pimples, and my skin is literally as soft as a baby's bottom. But occasionally, I do get the odd pimple on my face. And when I do.. OH DAMN! I pick at it! I used to have clear, even skin, but now it's covered in scars! Neosporin sped up the healing time of the picked areas, and after ONE NIGHT I saw the minor scars disappear completely. It never broke me out at all and it was very moisturizing. Try it. You'll be amazed! :)

help heal popped zit faster wouldnt go out with it on didnt seem to get ride of zit before i popped them i was reading threw here and it seemed alot of people had good thing to say about using this. so I desided i try it since i have the worst time with over the counter thing working. I would use it every night before i'd go to bed on zit that i hadnt popped yet and it really didnt seem to do anyhting for them lest not that i could tell. so i gave up with that and popped them and started using them on zit that i had pop. I'm a bad picker so the faster i could get them to heal the better. and it did a really good job it keep be from picking at them as much and it help heal them faster. i would deff try this if ur a picker.

works fast reduces redness and size household large size for small price!! i used to get small pimples all over my face, and now i get only a few pimple, which is nice, all except they are much larger and much redder! my friend suggested this to me, to put a dab of neosporin/polysporin on the pimple and cover it with a little "dot" band-aid. it works perfectly! it takes the redness and also the size of the pimple down a few notches. i use this if i get a pimple when i have an event coming up. it works really fast!

Heals popped and unpopped zits quickly Reduces swelling Leaves face soft Greasy This works better than anything else that I use. I don't like BP because it irritates my extremely dry sensitive skin, even when I use it with a moisturizer. This dramatically reduces swelling when I apply it to a cyst within a few hours(I typically apply before bed). It speeds the healing process up, and I never have to pop the cyst, so there is no chance of scarring. It also works great on popped pimples and cysts to heal the aftermath. I typically just use the generic because it works as well as name brand triple anti-biotics. It does look disgusting, so you can't really wear it out in public.

If you are a picker, this is for you!! * Reduces inflamation * Heals acne quickly. * Brings pimples to a head * Doesnt dry out skin like benzoyl peroxide * Keeps a wound moist which prevents it from scarring. * No smell. No real cons, it preforms as it is ment to but from an acne treatment point of view: * It is greasy (texture of vaseline) it didnt bother me but it might bother some. * Doesn't unclog pores. You need to use exfoliants in conjuction with it. * I could only use it at night or when i was at home and not wearing makeup. * Doesn't get rid of scarring or PIH This stuff is amazing! ive tried to get rid of my acne for a year. My acne was predominantly on my cheeks. I think the reason why it worked so well in my case is because i am a picker. We all know that picking gives you scars and spreads bacteria. So i learnt the appropriate way to pick a pimple (sterilised needle etc) and when i was done i'd put a thin layer of neosporin over the top. I've used this for one month at night and now i rarely get breakouts. Any i do get (probably because of makeup) heal quickly with no scarring. If you couple neosporin with the correct exfoliating/cleansing techniques you will be targeting two of the causes of acne (bacteria and clogged pores) I cleanse with a gentle cleanser. Exfoliate every 2-3 days with St Ives apricot scrub using the olay cleansing system (cheapy version of clarasonic) and i eat well and have cut out dairy and sugar. I'm now going to be doing a series of chemical peels to clear up any left over scars and PIH. Neosporin heals soo quickly and I'm a poor healer! This is a Godsend!

-prevents infection -heals popped pimple -allergic reaction Unfortunately, I am one of the unlucky people who are sensitive to the ingredient in neosporin, and I developed a big red area when I applied it to my popped pimple :( But it did help to heal it.

helps heal popped pimples anti-bacterial can't use it when outside cuz its embarassing I haven't used neosporin on unpopped pimples, but it's great to use it to heal the popped ones. Whenever I have a pimple that has come to a whitehead, I steam my face and then use two q-tips to pop the zit. Then I use an alcohol swab to quickly clean the popped pimple, only for like 3 seconds. Then I dab neosporin on another q-tip, and apply it on the wound. Put a bandaid over that, and the next morning, it's healed and basically gone. I only do this before I go to bed or I'm lounging around the house.

stops spots leaving scars reduces spot size heals spots double time cant use all over face as your skin will build up resistance I do not get many spots but when i do they are severe and leave scars. I noticed a very bad spot that i knew would leave a pit so i started to put nesporin on it. the spot came to a head but i did not pop it. i kept putting nesporin on. in two to three days the spot dried up and i was absaloutly amazed that the spot went down and never left a scar. for those who cant help picking..please stop because that is the main cause of scaring let your body heal it and also put nesporin on it. I have never seen a medication that works like this. I use mama lotion at night and after 20 mins i apply the nesporin on the individual spot. The mama lotion loosens the dead skin cells so the nesporin can work better.

heals quicker, prevents infection, helps stubborn open pimples come to a head greasy, for me it only works for popped pimples/open pimples for me when i pop a pimple i apply a good amount of neosporin on it and usually by the next day the pimple is reduced greatly and pretty much healed..just yesterday i had a pimple on my cheek that hurt alot and Benzoyl was not doing anything, i panicked and tried to pop it all i did was open it and just a lil bit of blood came out but nothing else, after that it got redder and hurt even more i decided to put neosporin to prevent infection, while i had it on i felt that area got ticklish, and after a few hours i go to the bathroom and after days of just a red spot a head had FINALLY appeared, i pop it and, everythig came out it was like an explosion all that was in there finally was out it was a big relief, i think neosporin actually pushes whatever is in there to the surface so it helps get rid of it, after i cleaned it and applied more neosporin and it is still helping greatly on the healing..

If you have a popped pimple it will dry it out and will help reduce the scarring I don't think there is one. This is a great tool in fighting acne. I spot treat with this. If i have a pimple I use a blob of this on the pimple with the BP. It reduces and disinfects it. If you have severe acne (I've never had) I would imagine it would help dry it out as well and disinfect it. FYI if you want to save money go to CVS or whatever buy the generic one, it should be bigger and it's the exact same thing. I use the ointment not the cream one. The ointment seems to last longer. I use it before bed not during the day.

-Cuts chance of infection when used on picked acne. -Helps to reduce redness, pain, inflammation. -Assists in the healing of an already infected pimple. -Resistance highly unlikely when used correctly. SEE BOTTOM LINE. -Doesn't do anything to unclog pores... it only helps with treating/preventing bacterial infections. INFORMATION ABOUT RESISTANCE: It is possible for bacteria to become resistant to numerous medications, including Neosporin. However, you will see that Neosporin (at least the type I am using) uses three different antibiotics at once. For those of you who understand basic biology and prophylactic medicines (preventative medications), you will know that this GREATLY REDUCES THE CHANCE OF RESISTANCE. Bacteria must first have a mutation that enables them to resist the medication, and it's much easier to have a resistance against ONE medication than THREE. Hence, in order for bacteria to survive Neosporin, they must have a series of mutations that would enable them to survive all three of the active ingredients at once -- even if they're resistant to one or two, they will still be vulnerable to the third and thusly die completely or experience reduced viability, and the body will able to fight or prevent infection. IN CONCLUSION: use Neosporin properly and don't worry too much. The chances of bacteria becoming resistant to all three of its active antibacterial ingredients is extremely small. HOW TO USE: -Gently clean affected area with warm water and soap. -Pat dry with a clean towel. -Apply a small amount of Neosporin according to directions. -You may apply a sterile bandage if you wish. -Stop picking at your acne!

good for opened pimples reduces redness reduces inflammation apparently can come resistant to it i always put a glob on any pimples that i must pop. don't pop the pimples just to put it on though. it's not a miracle cure by any means but it definitely speeds up the healing process if used consistently.
