Question by Lady Arcana: Can I use neosporin with a sulfa allergy?
I recently found out that I have an allergy to sulfa drugs after using Bactrim for an injury which had gotten infected.
I was wondering if it was okay to use neosporin on wounds, since it contains neomycin sulfate. Is neosporin considered a sulfa product as well, or is neomycin sulfate in a completely different category? I've never had an allergy to neosporin in the past, but I thought I should ask someone who knows a thing or two about pharmacology. Thanks to anyone with answers.

There should be a 1-800 number on the tube or box that you can call and they should be able to tell you. or you can ask your local pharmacist
