For Paronychia: "Used this ointment for one month and, although it is excellent for cuts and burns it did absolutely nothing for this awful nail condition."

For Nasal Carriage of Staphylococcus aureus: "I have had repeated impetigo from a staph colonization in my nose for the last 4+ months. I was told I was prescribed the nasal version as well, but the pharmacist refused to give it to me, telling me to just use the topical ointment intranasally. It burns my skin, never mind my nose. I don't think I have any cilia left in my nose from the chemical burns. This is also not recommended on large areas of the body, but my entire body including my scalp, cornea, and kidneys are infected with staph. I have been trapped in my house, not trying to spread the infection, for over 4 months. I REALLY hope I can get appropriate treatment soon....."

For Impetigo: "Mupirocin worked on my Impetigo but the weird thing is the finger that I used ( washed hands before and after) to apply this got tendonitis ( hurt so much!). I was confused because this is not the group of drugs that should cause that but when I started to apply with the other hand same thing happened. It was scary and weird. OK drug but watch for side effects."

For Impetigo: "Mupuricin 2% ointment for my face wounds caused by boils(abscess) , been applying this ointment for 5 months now, for me there is no side effect, no interaction with Clindamycin when using together, easy to use and it works wonderfully."

For Secondary Cutaneous Bacterial Infections: "I've used this on my 2year olds rash and saw noticeable results within 1 day. He would pick his face in his sleep and I couldn't clear it with anything until the doctor prescribed this. I keep it in my diaper bag all the time now. It also works amazingly for diaper rash and any small cut, scrape, or infection. No side affects on my son, daughter, or myself"

For Impetigo: "Thought I had horrible acne. Tried other things that online doctors prescribed. Made it worse. Went to my primary after not being able to go to work because I was so embarrassed by my face. She diagnosed it as impetigo and gave the ointment because it stays on longer. Not even 24 hours and it's almost cleared up. AMAZING. Zero side effects."

Bactroban (mupirocin) for Skin and Structure Infection: "As in any tropical country , shoes are a not a comfortable item to wear. The down side of that is your feet are exposed for knocks and scrapes. I have been using an Iodine type product in the past , My doctor in Australia prescribed Bactroban as cream for my condition...It has twice the recovery healing times as iodine , Would recommend it for your first aid pack."

For Skin and Structure Infection: "MD prescribed Mupirocin cream for what he thought was impetigo but swab was negative. Turned out to be roseaca. Cream did not help and actually caused nausea, diarrhea and dizziness. After I stopped using cream, my symptoms disappeared. I'm hyper sensitive to antibiotics and this one is now on the list."

For Skin and Structure Infection: "I have had a recurring scabby skin infection. Primary care physician prescribed this, did not work, then went to dermatologist, re-prescribed still does not work. It was first thought that condition is Impetigo. I am now waiting on the 2nd lab test. Feeling hopeless and frustrated."

Bactroban (mupirocin) for Skin and Structure Infection: "I had a heat rash in my groin and it was red and very irritating. I used a small amount if the ointment twice a day after showering. Within 24 hours, the irritation was bearable, within 48 hours the irritation had stopped and within 72 hours the redness had faded. I still have dull red marks where the skin was damaged but the rash has totally gone. This, is a fantastic product for heat rash and also, if you have an insect bite, it stops the itching within 2 minutes. Can be bought over the counter in most Asian countries. Cost here in the Philippines is 299 pesos or around $7. Bargain!"

Bactroban (mupirocin) for Nasal Carriage of Staphylococcus aureus: "After several uses of this effective medication I started having a sense of dizziness, shortness of breath and shaking. Now if I use it just once I have an occurrence of the same symptoms. I think I have an allergy to Bactroban which gets worse every time I use it."

Bactroban (mupirocin) for Skin and Structure Infection: "As per procedure, before a hospital stay for a knee replacement I had to have my nose swabbed. Prior to this I had a scab in my nose that hurt so I had been using Bactroban on it. When I went for my surgery everyone was gowning up before they came into my room because apparently my nose swab results came back positive for MRSA, and the Bactroban was detected as well. I was told Bactroban was the right medicine to use for the infection and actually by the time of my surgery my nose was already healed."

For Not Listed / Other: "My 2 year old daughter recently had a g-tube put in, which became infected. After 4 days of antibiotics and neosporin as prescribed by the Dr., the infection seemed to become worse. She was then prescribed Mupirocin and a different antibiotic and literally the very next day, the infected site seemed to be about 75% better! Impressed and happy, especially for my baby girl."

For Nasal Carriage of Staphylococcus aureus: "This ointment is amazing. Received a prescription as a result of infections from professional nails to see if I was prone to staff infection. When the physician asked if I had any bump issues, realized this could also cure my painful recurring boil problems. This medication took care of both. The only problem is that, against physicians recommendation, I began using it daily with the mindset that I never wanted to have another boil. I think it is causing my hair to fall out. This is not a permanent medication that should be taken."

Bactroban (mupirocin) for Skin and Structure Infection: "This medication is a miracle drug. My 4yr old daughter had a rash that nothing could cure then 2 days after using this cream, I saw an amazing difference. She has extremely dry skin in the winter which she scratches to the point of bleeding sometimes, but not anymore. At the first sign of dry/irritated skin, I apply this cream and it works like magic. Also used it on a rash I developed on my legs and the same thing. The itching stops almost immediately. This cream is a staple in our medicine cabinet."

Bactroban (mupirocin) for Skin and Structure Infection: "Using this on 5 year old's impetigo. She has a nasty lesion on the web on skin between her index and third finger. Nothing was helping it, but within one application of this stuff I saw a difference. I'm grateful to whoever discovered this product."

Bactroban (mupirocin) for Skin and Structure Infection: "As a correctional nurse specializing in wound care, I have found that this heals abcesses and "spider bites" with amazing speed. Noticeable healing within 24 hours. Wish it were available OTC, it would be a staple in my medicine cabinet."
