This might be a ridiculous question... Can I put neosporin on my 10 month old? He has a scratch down his arm.

    Yes, absolutely!! It will help heal the scratch!! Also, totally a reasonable question!!! When it comes to our children’s safety- no such thing as a ridiculous question!! If you’re uncomfortable putting Neosporin on baby, you can use aloe gel, or coconut oil- they both have amazing healing prosperities!!!

    Don’t forget that you can build up a tolerance to neosporin. Our own (grown-ups) doctor recommended you trade off using neosporin and generic polysporin (3 vs 2 active ingredients respectively) to help avoid that.
