No. Triamcinolone is a steroid cream and would make something that needed mupirocin worse. Mupirocin is an antibiotic cream and is to prevent infections.

My comment is this. I recently received a diagnosis of cellulitis of lower extremities and was prescribed mupirocin to apply to effected area. On follow up visit Doctor prescribed Triamcinolone cream and I sure as heck do not understand why he would do this if the above is true.
One is a steroid cream and one an antibiotic cream and making the infection worse. Any explanation's out there.
