Great for bad pimples! Once in a while I get cyst pimples (hard red bump under the skin). I used acne treatments to dry and dry them out until I realized how dry and flaky they were making my skin. One day, I tried putting neosporin on the pimple and covered it up with a band-aid while I slept. The pimple was significantly smaller and less dried-out the next morning. I repeated this for two more nights and my stubborn pimple was almost all gone. Not a miracle cure, but it helps a lot! Any brand will work.

this stuff is the best for open or scabbed pimples!! it will heal it very fast. if possible, reapply it a few times a day. if not, just apply at bedtime and leave the area uncovered. do NOT get the neosporin cream..get the ointment that has vitamin e and cocoa butter in it. it helps the area to heal without a scar or discoloration.

GREAT FOR ACNE! It works better than benzoyl peroxide and it makes my skin super soft. I usually put it on every night. The only thing I don't like is the smell...

I chemically burned my face.
So badly that I developed discoloration and wrinkling skin.
Parts of my face looked like stage makeup for an actor portraying an 80 year old woman. No, that is not an exaggeration.
I was on the verge of a meltdown, so I went and got what my mom used to use on me for cuts and applied to my face as much as I could.
My flawless skin was back in 2 nights.
Seriously, just do it. Catch it early. Apply everyday to the cut/burn/discoloration the minute you get it. Do not stop.

I do love neosporin for cuts and burns. I don't see that it makes a different with acne scaring though. I use this on the dry patches on my face and even after I get a waxing or threading. I have extremely sensitive eye areas and I noticed that it helps the redness and swelling. I also use this on my lips occasionally which helps. The only thing is you have to be careful not to apply this too often. It breaks down layers of skin and thins it out. Use sparingly and occasionally only. Vaseline is a great alternative to this and is better for your skin.

I never thought neosporin would become a HG for so many things for me, but it has. I am using a clear gel ointment form of it, and I swear it has made such a tremendous difference in my skin literally overnight. It is incredibly versatile and you can use it for so many things. I put it on all over my face at night and it somehow manages to deeply moisturise and at the same time, cure and prevent blemishes. It also is a wonderful lip treatment. I have gotten into the habit of only wearing longwear liquid lipsticks which dried my lips a bit and made them cracked and flaky, but a nice heavy layer of neosporin overnight softens and repairs them like no other product, high end or low end, has. It makes a good cuticle creme and cracked heel treatment too, if you don't mind a slight stickiness, and also of course to protect injuries. Of course, you cannot beat the price, especially if you get a generic version (which in my experience has worked just as well as the branded version.) I cannot swear by neosporin enough.

I always carry Neosporin in my purse and have done this for at least 20 years. I dab it on pimples, cuts, hangnails, a sore nose, blisters and any irritation that could become infected. I once tried a generic topical antibiotic which wasn't a 3 in 1 and it wa worthless. SInce then, I have been faithful to Neosporin.

Now this is a great multipurpose product. I was suffering from chronic dry, burning, flakey lips and needed something that didn't need constant reapplying and that actually works to treat the problem, not just cover it temporarily. I was using the CO Bigelow Rose Salve, and though I like it generally, it just wasn't cutting the mustard for what was going on with my lips. So my mom recommended that I just get a normal tube of Neosporin and using that in place of my lip balm. So I purchased a full tube for about 3 dollars at my grocery store and kept it in my purse and I am glad I did. It really worked to heal my lips and soothe them and negated the necessity for constantly reapplying a balm every 2 minutes. Now that my lips are doing better, I haven't being using it as much, but I keep it in my cosmetics bag just in case. So check your medicine cabinets and use Neosporin if your lips are giving you troubles rather than spending time and money looking for a band-aid solution that doesn't address the real problem.

OK, in a fit of frustration during an especially dry and flaky lip period, I reached for my trusty tube of Neosporin. Hey, it works to heal cuts and scrapes pretty effectively, so why not my languishing lippies? Lo and behold, the HG of all lip treatments!!!! I swear, this stuff is the ultimate for dry, cracked, painfully chapped lips! A warning: the taste is nasty. Really nasty, but try not and do that and this will work for you everytime. Even my little ones will go and grab the tube themselves when their lips are chapped and by the next morning they look healthy again. I carry a tube in my purse. It's not glamorous but it is totally effective.
Note: for those poor people that are suffering from chronic dryness from Accutane, give this a try. It worked for a friend of mine when she was at her wit's end.
Don't you just love products that are inexpensive little gems that do double-duty!

This is the best stuff ever for pimples - even deep ones. I don't get many but when I do, I clean my skin, use my toner and moisturizer then before bed dab on some antibiotic ointment - actually any brand is fine, and in the morning the redness is gone and it is at least 50% better. For during the day I gently massage a small amount on prior to makeup application. The zit is usually gone in 2 days and never any redness to deal with. The problem with drying lotions is that dry skin does not heal, it needs moisture for the skin to stay together and heal. And if there is a pimple it needs something to kill and keep out bacteria. I had heard that models use this all the time and it is the only thing I have been using for about a year now and it is fantastic. My skin has never been better. I hardly get a blemish now and if I do it is gone lickety-split! Also if you dry up skin and pimples too much they can just turn hard and never go away. This is the best solution ever! UPDATE: now I use the triple anitibiotic ointment - works the best.
