These are great for traveling!!

By 

from Puyallup, WA

Comments about Neosporin Neo to Go Single Use Packets:

As a family we love to travel and having kids makes you feel like you have to have band aids and Neosporin on hand. These are great for that! I wouldn't buy these all the time because they are more pricey than buying a tube of Neosporin, but they are great for on the go! These would also be great for camping and refilling Neosporin packets in a first aid kit or just to have extra on hand. These fit great in purses, diaper bags, glove compartments and in sports bags. I like the how well Neosporin works. It absorbs in well and brings relief to cuts, scrapes and burns. It also heals really well and in a fast amount of time. I have always been a fan of Neosporin. It is something everyone needs in their home.

Effectiveness
Neosporin is very effective in bringing relief and healing to cuts, burns and scraps. It works great!

Ease of Application
These little packets are easy to open and apply.

Side Effects
I haven't found any negative side effects with this product. It does what it is suppose to do.

Comments about Neosporin Neo to Go Single Use Packets:

This product is a must for anyone with kids, or accident prone adults! The easy to-go size makes it simple to stash in your purse or glove box. We live on a farm and are constantly getting gashes and cuts. Neo to go helps me rest assured that we can treat a cut without having to go up to the house, or into town to the store.

A portable way to fight infections of minor cuts and scrapes.

By 

from Crystal Lake, IL

Comments about Neosporin Neo to Go Single Use Packets:

I am what you call a worry wart mom. I have a first aid kit in my car and I always have a couple of band aids and antibiotic ointment in my purse. Neosporin Neo to Go Single Use Packs has made that possible for me. You never know when you are going to get a cut and it is always best to treat right away with antibiotic ointment so these packs are highly convenient. There are 10 packets in each box and each packet 9 grams of ointment, it does not seem like a lot but it is enough for most minor wounds. The packaets are very sturdy as well and so I have not had one break in by purse and get ointment every where.

The Neosporin brand itself claims to Kills more types of infectious bacteria than even the leading topical prescription based on laboratory results. I believe this because we have used it for years and none of us has ever had a really bad infection except my husband who bumped his elbow and didn't realize he cut it so he did not treat it with Neosporin, he ended up getting a staff infection.

Neosporin not only helps fight off infection but it also helps wounds to heal faster and reduce scarring.

These little packets have been very convienient for my family and have the same strong antibiotic properties of the Neosporin in the tube does so you know that you can trust it and it will do the job. We have been very happy with the Neosporin brand and now very happy to have a convenient way to carry it around with us.

Effectiveness
Has the same effectiveness of the full size product which is excellent.

Ease of Application
Same application as the full size, very simple. Just rub it on. Clean the wound first though.

Side Effects
No one in my family has ever experienced any side effects.

Neo to Go is great for travel

By 

from Appleton, WI

Comments about Neosporin Neo to Go Single Use Packets:

I have five rough and tumble boys so we often have mishaps that lead to someone having a scratch or a scrape. We have come to realize that we aren't always within easy access of our home first aid kit so we saw the Neosporin neo to go antibiotic ointment Pocket sized packets and thought they would be a good fit for our active lifestyle. I thought they would be convenient to have on hand or in my purse and it would make me feel better that I could apply the neosporin right away rather than just washing with water and putting the neosporin on later at home.

We have always used neosporin on cuts and scrapes and I think it does speed the healing. The Neosporin Neo to Go antibiotic pocket sized packets weren't the best fit for us. I did like the convenience but they seem pretty wasteful with having an individual packet for each treatment and then they can't be saved for future use even if you don't use the whole packet. A regular tube of neosporin doesn't take up much room in my bag or the glove box and I feel it is a better value.

FEEL SAFE WITH THIS PRODUCT

By 

from Lithia Springs, GA

Comments about Neosporin Neo to Go Single Use Packets:

This is a product that I have been around since a young child and that's been a while ago.  My mother used this product to soothe our wounds.  Since she was a hospital employee, the over-the-counter medical products she purchased were usually recommended by a physician she knew.  My mother's connection with hospital services always made every medication she used to clean, soothe and heal our wounds acceptable.  As an adult, I still use this product with comfort, partly because of the comfort it brought me as a child and partly because it always did the job.  Neosporin does prevent bacteria from growing on your wounds.  Administrating this product on any small wound is always a sure thing for me.  I can feel it working from the minute it touches the wound.  I feel confident, assured and satisfied that all is taken care of.  I would definitely recommend this product because of what I have personnally experienced.  I'm sure my childhood experiences come into play when I use this product, but that's not all that comes into play, IT REALLY WORKS FOR ME AND MY FAMILY,  and in the end, that along, with the childhood comfort, is what really counts for me.

Neosporin Pocket Sized Packets are Convenient but not Very Green

By 

from Piedmont, NC

Comments about Neosporin Neo to Go Single Use Packets:

Neosporin has developed packets designed for helping to treat wounds on the go. These can be handy in a first aid kit. We have a first aid kit in each of our vehicles. It is very nice to have these around if you have kids or are accident prone or just like to be prepared for bumps and scrapes. We've used ours quite a few times.

I have kept a tube of ointment in mine, but I have used these packets from other people. They are convenient and easily portable. The packets are a little like alcohol wipes. You just open the packet and wipe on the ointment after cleaning the wound. It helps to cover with a bandage after that.

My kids have very sensitive skin and are allergic to about everything, but thankfully, they aren't sensitive to Neosporin, but I'd carefully check the ingredients to ensure that they are safe for whoever is using them. The web site says these are gluten-free and may be used on people of any age. I wouldn't use these for something like a diaper rash, but I would use it for a minor cut or scrape.

Although these are convenient, I think I would go with the tube of ointment. These are much more expensive - you use it for one wound and throw away. It creates a bigger burden on the environment because it is also packaged individually to keep it from drying out. This box only has 10 packets - I can get a lot more mileage out of a tube.

My Viewpoint:

Neosporin packets are convenient and useful to have if traveling, but they are more costly than the tube, won't last as long, and to me aren't as environmentally friendly. I would prefer to travel with a tube of store brand triple antibiotic ointment and just zip it in a small plastic bag just to make sure it didn't get on anything else in the kit.

See a healthcare provider if a cut or injury doesn't heal as expected.

So much easier to travel with

By 

from Mobile, AL

Comments about Neosporin Neo to Go Single Use Packets:

Neosporin Neo to go Antiobiotic Ointment pocket sized packets are so much easier to take with you when you are on the go, especially on vacation or into theme parks. Taking the tube of neosporin just gets messy everywhere. The ointment is the same great working stuff that i have always used and trusted, and having it in these easy to go, throw away packets are incredible.

Neosporin Neo To Go Pocket Sized keeps kids' clean on the go!

By 

from Jacksonville, FL

Comments about Neosporin Neo to Go Single Use Packets:

These things are really wonderful. They come in a box of ten, and they are perforated, so you can separate them individually and just take a few with you. I made little First Aid Kits for the diaper bag, my purse, gym bags, the car...and they all include this product. Before this, it was always the little alcohol wipes we would use. And of course, alcohol wipes seem to sting a bit! But the Neo to Go doesn't sting at all, according to my children. And they are resident experts, they seem to get hurt "on the go" more than they get hurt at home, where the big first aid kit and supplies are! They are a good little addition to any pre-made or self-made first aid kit. Their one time use also takes care of the concern that squirming and crying might cause you to get the tip of the tube dirty when using the tube style Neosporin. This is all we use on the go, and we use the small spray Neosporin when we are at home.
