There is nothing OTC that contains the same ingredient as Bactroban (which is Mupirocin calcium cream) The closest you could come would be a triple antibiotic ointment or cream (TAO). What matters most is what organism you are trying to kill. If you have an organism that is resistant to the ingredients of TAO, it wont help. Bactroban may be able to kill organisms that TAO cant. Do you know what organism is infecting your skin? What are you treating?
