Bactroban mupirocin ointment over the counter

Common Questions and Answers about Bactroban mupirocin ointment over the counter


Avatar m tn I've used Benzoyl Peroxide <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> cream on them, but i'm not sure if it really helped or not. Could it just be a stubborn infection? Should I make an appointment with a dermatologist or is there an over the counter medication that I could try? Will I outgrow it like acne?
Avatar m tn Topical antibiotics such as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>mupirocin</span> or neomycin containing ointment are also useful. In case <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed. Please consult a dermatologist in that case. Hope it helps .Take care and please do keep us posted in case you have any additional queries. Kind regards.
Avatar n tn I also highly recommend a product called Cerave, which can be purchased <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> at Walgreens, Target, Walmart, etc. I've had very good results using the facewash, then using the lotion throughout the day. Also I've found its crucial to wash my face only with warm (not hot) water, and then rinse with cold water. Good luck.
Avatar n tn What I also did though was to rub <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> cream all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> lower (infected) part of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> outside of my nose, on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> opening of each nostril and on the upper lip area. My theory was that while I was able to clear up the original infection I was continually re-infecting it from the outside. Anyway, seems to have worked. I've now been infection clear for the last week. I will continue treatment for at least another week, although now just three times a day.
Avatar n tn Just a very sharp pain in the nose that seemed almost to be in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> bone and cartilage, hurting mostly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> bridge and traveling down to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> tip of the nose, as if my nose was broken. But I hadn't had any injury to my face. I've been on an antibiotic, Cephalexin, for 10 days and the pain is nearly all gone. I still feel it slightly if I push my finger into the bridge of my nose where the pain started.
Avatar n tn I took the prescription to my local pharm, they said the cream he'd prescribed was a very very expensive prescription, and told me that the exact same thing was sold <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span>, its an antifungal cream for athletes foot and jock itch!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been using it for about 4 days now just applying it to the outside edge of my lips, and the corners.
Avatar m tn It creates a large light yellow scab, then it is hard to breath, hurts and you start all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> picking it off <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> next day, I was tired of driving down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> street, trying to get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> scab out for the last time. Or when I put makeup on, it shows cracks in my lower nostril.....always uncomfortable, wondering if it is cancer, very embarrassing, anyway, back to MRSA, I just dabbed a small amount of mupirocin 2% ointment prescribed by PCP, and it is gone!!!!!
Avatar f tn chest. Topical <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span> (OTC) antifungal creams helped a little, but I found treating from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> inside out by killing the fungus and boosting my immune system was the best approach. I highly recommend  Syntol by Andrew Arthur Medical to everyone fighting a fungal infection as it's an oral supplement containing many yeast digesting enzymes in addition to multiple strains of probiotic spores (spore germination = better recolonization of good bacteria).
Avatar n tn I tried the anti-dandruff shampoo called Nizoral. It's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>counter</span>. I put some around my eyes and burned <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> heck out of the skin. One time, it combined with the soap I used to wash my face (or the anti fungal stuff) and left me with a horrible red chemical burn on the skin around my eyes that lasted for several days. That was fantastic. When I arrived to see my girlfriend, I looked like walking death.
Avatar n tn I am so glad to know that I am not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> only one having this problem. I keep getting them <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> again on my bikini line. Was anyone who visited or talk to a dr/nurse given advice on preventing them?? I wonder if laser hair removal is an option. At this point, I'd go for that if it would stop these painful lumps.
Avatar n tn then I got a cluster of blisters on my inner thigh that would come and go <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>over</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> past two years. Now I get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>the</span> blisters in random symmetrical areas on my feet, legs, buttocks, stomach, and scalp. the head blisters are the worst and drive me crazy at night. I have had all the tests for gluten allergy and everything came back normal. It is so strange to me that so many people evidently have this problem and no one knows what it is.
