I would agree with her, but if the alcohol is too drying on your skin, then try witch hazel. I like Thayers witch hazel products. I don’t like too many medicants for aftercare - keep it simple, as your skin will usually heal just fine.
Neosporin is a triple antibiotic that comes as cream or ointment. It can irritate the skin in sensitive people. It contains Bacitracin, Neomycin and Polymixin. Neomycin is the ingredient that can cause the problem in sensitive people. If your skin gets really red after you use Neosporin, then discontinue use. Also, Neosporin ointment is a pore clogger (bumps) containing ingredients like white petroleum, cocoa butter, cottonseed oil, olive oil. It would be better to switch to a double antibiotic cream like Polysporin and also use 100% aloe Vera GEL. Just nix out the neomycin ingredient and you’ll be fine.
As far as scar prevention goes, Neosporin does nothing for old scars but would be useful for those not allergic to the neomycin ingredient for healing a new irritation. I’m referring to larger wounds, not electrolysis. I don’t think you need topical antibitiocs after electrolysis unless your skin is prone pustule formation. If you do need topicals just go with a double antibiotic cream like Polysporin. Usually, dabbing with witch hazel and using a quality aloe vera gel and tea tree oil at night would be better in my opinion because they keep the area cleansed, soothed and moist,too.
Oh, and don’t worry about choosing to buy Neosporin over Polysporin. Pfizer makes both so they will get their due profit either way you choose to buy.
