Why yes I am writing a review on Neosporin. I’ve actually never used it before until recently. I had an infected nose piercing & even though I did everything my piercer told me to do, it still wasn’t working. The saline sprays, the warm salt water compress or even the bactine. It wasn’t until I ran into a dr friend who told me to use Neosporin. She happens to be an ear nose & throat surgeon & has seen nose piercing infections she’s had to do surgery on. So, when she told me to use Neosporin I did what she told me to do. You know what, after a few days my nose healed! So, if you ever have an infected piercing use Neosporin!

This product is great. It has been around for a really long time because it works. It helps soothe boo boos and is decent at helping with scars. I have also used this product on my acne as it is clearing up to help reduce scarring from my acne. It has seemed to work well for that. We always have this product in our home.

I keep Neosporin in stock at my house. I have three girls, ages 11, 8, and 6 so I'm always having to apply Neosporin to the many cuts, scratches, mosquito bites, burns, ANYTHING! It really does help the scratch or wound heal faster and not scar as bad. Will always have this in my house!

I always have Neosporin at home. This stuff is great. It helps your injury not get infected also which is a plus. I've even used it as chapstick when I have none around. It speeds up recovery time, but not by too much, but it does help minimize the scar, which is a definite plus! It does have some oil of sort in it, which can stain clothes so be careful if your not planning on putting a bandaid over it. Overall I definitely recommend this and think everyone should have some in their medicine cabinet!!!

I learned in esthetician school acne is bacteria and all these products the market is trying to sell you is just gimmicks and this is my best kept secret. Neosporin works as an antibiotic to get the pimple out and Viola gone

I put this on all of my daughter's boo boos. They always heal in just a couple of days. And the price is very well worth no scars !!! Super happy with it. You dont ever know how well it works until you become a mother.

This is hands down the best antibiotic cream. We use this on every cut/scratch to keep from becoming infected. I feel this brand works faster than others when it comes to comparing this to offbrands. Super affoldable. We keep this in our first aid kit. The tube is easy to hold and use.

Best ointment out there! It really helps with preventing scars. Whenever my kids get cuts, I put some of this on and a bandage and they’re good to go. This stuff really speeds up the healing process also.

Neosporin is a must have in your medicine cabinet. Make it a staple in your house. It can be used for cuts and scrapes on adults, children, and even pets! My kitty got a scratch on his nose that was decently deep and I used a q-tip to put a little neosporin on, it was so much more healed the next day. Really helpful for visible cuts to reduce scarring and faster healing!
