Is it safe to use neosporin ointment during pregnancy?

my wife is in the 30th weeks of pregnancy now. She had the celulitis in left foot 6 weeks back and took augmentin 625mg BD for two weeks. There is still a pain in foot when she walks, so unable to walk freely. The doctor has advised neosporin ointment twice daily for local application. Is this ointment safe during pregnancy?
