Yes but . . ..: Neosporin and a variety of other topical antibiotics can be used but none of these will have any effectiveness as the antibiotic will not penetrate. Instead used very warm packs 5 times per day for 5 minutes each application.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
