Sorry to hear that Bailey has to be on antibiotic. I don't think it would hurt to put Neosporin on it, but the antibiotic would probably be enough.
Give him a little cuddle from Auntie Carol -  I hope it heals up real soon!

The antibiotic is a pill, right?  So that is treating the infection from the inside.

You could put Neosporin on the outside to help with the itch and inflammation.  (I wouldn't mix it if the antibiotic is a topical treatment.  )

I usually just put Bag Balm on, as I have that handy for anything and everything.  But the Neosporin will be fine also.

I have no experience with any cysts, but Neosporin is awesome. It works wonders. Belle has a sratch from her dew claw after it was trimmed, and the Neosporin took care of it and fast too. nodding
I hope Bailey heals fast!

Mr Hary had one of these cysts last year,it was a large one that was infected,he to was on antibiotics for a week.....the vet advised me once it had shrunk,he would do surgery to remove it all,this was carried out ...with no problem,he also told me these wee doggies are prone to these type of cysts.

Hope the wee ones ok.
