Why is Bactroban prescribed?
Mupirocin (Bactroban) ointment is prescribed for the treatment of bacterial skin infections such as impetigo, cellulitis and folliculitis.
What does it do?
Impetigo is caused by bacteria that infects the epidermis (outermost layer) of the skin. Bacteria enters through a cut or scratch and may cause the formation of reddish sores that may develop to form blisters. Symptoms of impetigo include painful and itchy sores that are usually found on the face.
Mupirocin is an antibiotic that blocks the synthesis of proteins; thus, stopping the growth of bacteria on the skin.
How should I apply it?
Bactroban is a 2mg ointment available in 15g or 30g tubes intended for use on the skin only (topical administration).
- To apply Bactroban ointment:
- Wash your hands with soap and water before handling the ointment.
- Wash and dry the affected area of your skin.
- Apply a small amount of the ointment using a cotton swab or gauze pad.
