My 20 month grandson has what was verified to be an abses. Bactrium was prescribed. Went to get it filled and the pharmacist told my daughter that it was a topical cream. After going through this before I knew that this was incorrect that I looked again at the script to check for any problems with the written part which was right.
Bactrim is an oral medication. Bacitracin and Bactroban are ointments or creams. Have your daughter call the prescribing Dr to see what was actually written. The office should be able to confirm whether it was supposed to be an oral med or a topical. The pharmacist may have read it wrong. You can have the Dr's office phone it in directly to the pharmacy so it is filled properly.
