No you can not use mupirocin
While the primary approved uses for mupirocin apply to the treatment or prevention of various bacterial infections, it is sometimes used in an off-label fashion to rid the nasal passages of MRSA bacteria prior to an elective surgery. Children as young as two months old can use both skin formulations of mupirocin. The nasal ointment, however, is only approved for adults.
No you cnot use bactroban either
Bactroban is a prescription medication used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. It is available in an ointment or a cream that is applied to the skin, as well as an ointment that is applied inside the nose. The nasal form is primarily used to prevent methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteria from spreading.
I suggest you call your Doctor or ask your Pharmacist.
