my 11 month old daughter keeps getting diaper rash, nothing has helped. Is it safe to use Mupirocin ointment to treat her rash?
Sorry this question wasn't answered earlier for you.
Mupirocin is an antibacterial and will only help if the diaper rash has become infected with bacteria. This is unlikely. Diaper rash most often gets infected with a yeast or a fungus called Candida.
