i was told to use selsun blue for 2 weeks but it has not gotten ride of it. the doctor said it is common.
Mupirocin is an antibiotic and it is NOT going to help the skin fungus. Try an antifungal cream like Monistat, or tinactin, they will treat fungal infections. It it gets worse with an antifungal, then it is not a fungal infection or you may have to use a steroid cream or tablets, you didn't mention if it was diagnosed as fungal for sure.
