Bactroban Ointment 15g can be used as a topical treatment for a variety of primary bacterial skin infections like impetigo, folliculitis, furunculosis and ecthyma and can also be used to treat secondary infections that occur in damaged skin such as infections due to eczema, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, herpes (cold sores), genetic skin disorders that cause dry, fragile skin. Not only that but it can also be used for the treatment of infected traumatic lesions, wounds, ulcers, minor burns, cuts, grazes and insect bites in order to prevent the development of infection and aid wound healing.

It contains the active antibacterial ingredient mupirocin, which works by affecting the bacteria’s production of certain proteins that are necessary for their survival. Instead, it causes the bacteria to produce abnormal and faulty proteins, which results in the elimination of the bacteria and clearing of the bacteria. 

Directions for using Bactroban Ointment 15g:

  • You should apply Bactroban ointment to the affected area three times each day for as long as recommended by your doctor (usually for up to 10 days).
  • Squeeze a small amount onto your finger tip and rub in gently; always wash your hands before and after applying the ointment.
  • If you miss an application of Bactroban ointment take it as soon as you remember, unless it is time to take the next dose, then skip the missed application. Do not apply a double dose.

  • Do not use Bactroban Nasal Ointment if you have a known sensitivity or allergy to any of the ingredients.
  • The safety of this medicine for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding has not been established. It is therefore recommended, like with all other medicines, to speak with your doctor or healthcare professional before using Bactroban Nasal Ointment.

You should not use Bactroban if you:

  • are allergic to mupirocin or any ingredients in Bactroban ointment
  • have an infection in your eye or nose, as Bactroban ointment is suitable only for skin infections
