    Impossible to make any recommendations with this information. If it does not heal up with keeping it covered, clean, and treated with Neosporin, you need to see a podiatrist or your primary care doctor.

    My experience with such web-space wounds is that they're fungal first. I've had good success with clotrimazole and betamethasone dipropionate cream, which has anti-fungal and steroid in it.
    I would wash and dry well daily, then apply a light coating to all the web-spaces of that foot as well as the toes.

    I would also recommend that after you clean and bandage your wound that you put a small piece of lamb's wool (you can purchase on Amazon) between those toes as it appears you may be getting pressure upon that wound from the next toe.

    If it's athlete's foot (a fungus) betamethasone dipropionate cream is a potent treatment.
    I've had wounds that look identical to yours and have found it very
    effective, but I think it's prescription only.
    Neosprine? Neosporin is anti-bacterial but as far as I know, is not effective for fungal infections.
    When I get a web-wound like yours, I also spray the front half of my foot with an athlete's foot spray after treating the web-space with
    betamethasone dipropionate cream.
    Good luck!
