Mupirocin should not be used for just dry skin.

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.

You should use a good emollient for the dry skin. Check in your local pharmacy ... they will recommend something.
