There are three different forms of Bactroban: nasal ointment, skin ointment, and skin cream. The nasal ointment is the form used during a MRSA outbreak. The nasal passages are often where the bacteria are located in people who are "carriers." By ridding the nasal passages of this bacteria, the spread of infection can sometimes be reduced.
When using the nasal form of Bactroban, the medication is applied in each nostril twice a day for five days. Then, the nostrils should be repeatedly pinched together and released for one minute. This helps ensure that the ointment is distributed evenly throughout the nasal passages.
For more details please seek medical advice, take care.
