Uses
Bactroban Ointment (Mupirocin) is a monoxycarbolic acid antibiotic which is applied topically to the skin to treat bacterial infections such as impetigo, furuncle and wounds. It is also considered effective against a type of methicillin resistant bacteria called MRSA (staphylococcus aureus). This ointment works by interfering with the ability of the bacteria to produce essential proteins, causing them to make abnormal proteins, resulting in the destruction of the bacteria and the treatment of the infection.

Dosage and Administration
Bactroban Ointment (Mupirocin) is applied to the skin topically. Your doctor will advise you on how to apply it, and you will also be told when to apply it. Adults are usually instructed to apply the cream to the affected area 3 times per day, and doctors generally recommend continuing treatment for a period of 1 to 2 weeks. If treatment is continued on a long term basis, it is possible that a second infection may occur. See your doctor straight away if this happens.
