|Neosporin is safe to use on a dog as long as you don't eat it. We've also used Benadryl cream and hydrocortisone cream (1%) for itchies. Our vet told us those would be OK things to use if needed for their intended purpose....just no licking (there's where the dreaded cone comes in). You could also put on a light t-shirt over it, if you have one that fits.
When I had my lumpectomy last fall, they shaved me a bit close and gave me some razor burn. Mom did use a little Neosporin with pain relief in it for a day or two. My rash was on my shoulder/back so I couldn't really lick it. She made me wear a t-shirt so I couldn't scratch my stitches. A cone wouldn't have worked there.
The Neosporin with pain relief in it helps to make the spot not itch and hurt so much so you'll furget about messing with it.
Smoke, hates itching
