Neosporin for incisions?

Oops, I put this question in the wrong thread:

Even though I wasn't sure if I was supposed to, I did take my steristrips off yesterday. My incisions are 1/4 to 1/2 inches long, crusty and red (but not oozing anything). I think they look okay. I was wondering if I should put neosporin on them. Does anyone know?

Neosporin for incisions?

Hi there,

The best thing is to ask your Dr. But I went to my 2wk appt on Friday and I asked my Dr about that and she said neo or polysporin is fine to put on.

Hope you have a speedy recovery!

Neosporin for incisions?

My post-op instructions said to use neosporin. I started as soon as the steri-strips came off. A couple of my incisions have had some pus, but they seem to be getting better.

You should, of course, check with your doc to be sure.

Hi Cherry

As everyone has stated, before you do anything with your incisions you should check with your doctor to see if it's ok. Some say yes, and some say no. So long as you're not presenting any signs of infection you should be fine just as you are for now until you can call the office on Monday morning.

Remember to keep resting and don't overdo. Remember this is your time to pamper the princess!
