Bleeding in tear during waxing. Applied Neosporin. Will this suffice?

Hi I was waxing earlier and my husband helped me... I was working on the area near labia majors and somehow when he pulled the strip, it caused a linear tear right in the crease between the major and minora, it bled a little but stopped. The tear is about an inch and a half long and about 1/4 inch wide. It isnt really deep. I applied neosporin , will this suffice?

hello rdw0711
yes this tear will heal after some time but you can use antibiotics because chances of infection is more at this site
you can use amoxycillin 250 mg tablet or capsule thrice daily for 3-5 days.
