Neosporin ointment or benzoyl peroxide gel

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I have gone through your complaints and you can apply topical antibiotic like neosporin ointment or benzoyl peroxide 2.5 percent gel on the affected areas twice daily for 7-10 days.
This should help you.
