Is there any kind of cream, such as neosporin that I can use as my face is healing from carac cream?

No. Your skin will heal but it may take 2 or more weeks after stopping treatment.
Unless the skin has become infected with bacteria an antibiotic cream such as neosporin is inappropriate. Talk to your doctor if you are concerned.

(Make sure you use sunscreen if you are outside and cover up as much as possible.)
