There are 2 disease interactions with Neosporin (bacitracin / neomycin / polymyxin b topical):
Neomycin (otic) (Includes Neosporin) ↔ perforated tympanic membrane
Severe Potential Hazard, High plausibility. Applies to: Perforated Tympanic Membrane
Like other aminoglycosides, neomycin is potentially ototoxic, both to vestibular and to auditory functions. Therapy with neomycin otic preparations should be administered cautiously in patients with chronic otitis media or a perforated tympanic membrane. The risk of ototoxicity may be increased if medication enters the middle ear.

Topical aminoglycosides (Includes Neosporin) ↔ burns
Moderate Potential Hazard, High plausibility. Applies to: Burns - External
Topical aminoglycosides should not be used on serious burns. When applied locally, aminoglycosides are generally not absorbed to a significant extent through intact skin but readily absorbed through denuded, burned, or granulating skin. Systemic adverse effects of aminoglycosides include nephrotoxicity and ototoxicity to vestibular and auditory functions. In general, topical aminoglycosides should not be used on large areas of the body or for more than 7 days without medical supervision.
