Cetaphil good!!!: Cetaphil will HELP your face. Throw away the polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin). Like neosporin, bacitracin, and triple antibiotic, it is a common sensitizer, often causing just what you describe. Since none of these seem to be of any use, there is no reason to ever use any of them.
