Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

The open sore requires regular dressing which will treat the associated secondary bacterial infection and the wound will heal rapidly.

Oral antibiotics may be required.

At present continue application of Neosporin and consult the doctor for physical examination and for specific advise.

Hope I have answered your query.
