Neosporin is a great invention. Not only does it instantly stop your cut from stinging but it also helps to keep the cut bacteria free and lessens the chance of getting a scar. They also have a to-go spray that’s perfect for your purse.

I cut my pointer finger on the side right on the first joint from my hand. It was a bit deep, and maybe stitches would have helped. After five days of it breaking open and bleeding, I was telling my adult daughter about this. She told me to use Neosporin. I used the Neosporin on the cut and put a bandaid on it each night. In the morning, I would apply the Neosporin and let it absorb. Two days later, I have good healing started up. The bleeding has completely stopped and the wound is significantly smaller. I am pleased.

This stuff is amazing. My daughter got a really bad rash around her mouth due to her licking around there and it got so bad it was becoming raw. My uncle who is a Dr told us to use Neosporin for it and in like a week her mouth started clearing up. Her mouth wasn't so chapped and raw and the coloration was going away. There is still dark patches but she uses it daily and it's softening the skin and helping with the dryness.

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!!!

What is your favorite or quickest way to heal scar and dark spots? I like NEOSPORIN® Original Ointment and Ambi Fade Cream and occasionally black or shea butter butter soap. I'm just never consistent.
