I am a 56-year-old male. Due to the overuse of soap, I had a small abrasion on the area below the glans. I applied a large amount of Neosporin ointment. The next day the glans became red only on the area where the Neosporin came in contact with the glans. I have sent the picture. (The arrow shows the area where I applied Neosporin. And it also shows the problem and redness that started.) There is no itching but a little discomfort.
I have no history of diabetes but I take medicines for primary hypertension. I have IBS and take Normaxin and I also have small diverticuli. No recent sexual activity. I have been advised Candid 1 % lotion in the morning, T Bact ointment in the evening, Augmentin Duo 625, Ebastine 10 mg, Montelukast 10 mg at night OD and Fluka 150 mg one tablet. It is the fourth day and there seems to be no improvement. Application of Neosporin is the start of this problem. Should I change the treatment or continue it?
