Ik with bearded dragons vets say never use neosporin with pain relief the meds in the pain relief is more deadly then helpful. Only to use the normal neosporin. Guessing with other reptiles as sulcstas and torts this lrolly holds true too?
Usually Neosporin is referred to as triple antibiotic ointment (at least that's the way I've usually seen it in the guidance). Good point about the extra/different stuff like the pain relief. Some good resources were written in the 1990s, before some of the extras started being added into certain products. When in doubt, even if a product is supposed to be okay to use, it's probably safest to go with the least complicated (read: no extras or weird stuff) version of the product.
