Yes neosporin can apply on the stiches of upper or lower lip. It is local antibiotic. No problem with that. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.

Dr.   Binu Parameswaran Pillai MD

Please continue it till the wound is completely healed

Dr. Grzegorz Stanko MD

Just wash it with water and soap. Since the wound is closed, no need to use saline or anything similar. Even bandage is not necessary.
