I am a middle aged women, recently diagnosed with diabetes, and my doctor told me not to use Neosporin ointment on my paper-cuts. Do you know why?


I have no idea why your doctor would tell you not to use Neosporin Ointment on your paper cuts. There is nothing in it that would effect you or your diabetes. I guess my best suggestion is to ask him why he said that on your next visit.
