No, not unless you have infected eczema which generally would need to be diagnosed by a doctor.
Mupirocin is a topical antibiotic ointment used to treat bacterial skin infections.
Treatment of eczema will vary depending on the appearance (stage) of the eczema eg.acute "weeping" lesions, dry scaly lesions, or chronic dry, thickened lesions are each treated differently.
Talk with your pharmacist or doctor for more advice. See the link below.
