Wash off: Wash the neosporin off with warm water. Just never use it again. It's very common to have skin allergy to neosporin. Wrap the area gently in gauze with nonstick pad over the wound.

Treat: Once the allergen gets into contact with the skin, it is difficult if not impossible to remove enough to make much of a difference. Try topical Hydrocortisone cream on the area and be sure to read labels in the future to avoid further contact with neosporin.
