I have an abrasion on my face that hasn't healed in 2 weeks. Used polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) but it just gave me a rash. Should I be worried or just let it heal?

In brief: Stop Polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin)

Polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) can cause occasional skin allergy .
Stop using it and let abrasion heal in the air. If not healed in 2 weeks then see a dermatologist.
