How to get rid of infected bug bites? Is neosporin strong enough, or must I see the doc?

In brief: Don't wait too long

If you have bug bites and they are worsening, painful, draining pus -they could in fact be infected.
I would see a doctor if the neosporin is not helping. Letting something as seemingly simples as bug bites get bad enough to cause infection is unwise. Have it checked out. It should be simple to treat.
