No: Main component of savlon is cetrimide which is an antiseptic. On the other hand neosporin is an antibiotic which is effective against infection. Savlon protects against infection. Neosporin treat infection. You cannot substitute savlon with neosporin. Use of savlon will reduce the changes of infection and use of neosporin.
