My current vet told me that she does not like to use ointment on them, she said that some antibiotic topical ointments really sting them, and if they lick it off every time, it can start to be dangerous for them. It is fine if they only lick it a couple of times, but too much can become very harmful.
I do nt know about your cream specifically, but from what my vet said, it is unnecessary with oral antibiotics, and it seems like it is only causing her stress.
Hope that heps, hope she heals up!
