Can you use neosporin ointment to treat phimosos instead of using steroids?

In brief: Depends

The most common cause of phimosis is recurrent infection/inflammation and this is usually fungal in this area.
I find best results with combined anti fungal and steroid cream. In rare instances neosporin could benefit.
