No, mupirocin won't help treat athletes foot.
Mupirocin is an antibiotic that treats or prevents infection caused by bacteria.
Mupirocin nasal (for the nose) is used to prevent severe staph infections in patients and healthcare workers who may be at risk of infection during an outbreak within a hospital or other healthcare setting.
Athletes foot is a fungal infection so you'll need antifungal creams like terbinafine (Lamisil), clotrimazole or miconazole.

it is used (the topical for uncomplicated impetign diaper rash etc) but says nothing specifically about athletes feet over the counter things have worked for me but I know every person is different have you tried Loprox a Rx cream 0.77% or tinactin these are just a few that have worked for me if you can't seem to find further help please contact your doctors office or even ask the pharmacist I wish you the best happen to think boiling tea bags and allowing to cool and soaking feet can help with odor and the other as well just a thought what works for one won't always for another
