If you were to use neosporin it may lead you to becoming sensitive to the medication. It might also irritate the delicate tissues. ...Read more

Natural Healing: The good news is that area has fantastic blood supply and so healing will occur rapidly. Inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling) is the body increasing the blood flow to the injury to bring healing factors to the area and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away. Dressings and ointments are of no value there. Avoid further trauma to the area and let nature take it's course. ...Read more

Can I put neosporin on a sore irritated vagina?

Wont help: You can safely apply that to the vagina but it is not likely to help. The key to vaginal irritation is to determine the cause and then use the appropriate treatment. Yeast is one common cause. Over the counter creams are available. Herpes is an STD that can cause this. Testing is available. Inflammation from exposure to household irritants are another. A visit to an obgyn can help sort this out. ...Read more
