i use neosporin for most every, cut, scrape, cut, etc. And always in ointment form, they even have one with a pain killer in it. It works great and it works fast. Ask your pharmacist about the ointment version it's in most every pharmacy/grocery store. (i personally have never seen the cream version, only the ointment).
Anyhow, i think it is a great midication and always have it in the house.
