It was more like it kept them at bay, but they seemed to remain under
. It's hard to explain exactly, but it was sort of like the Mupirocin kept new bumps
from developing as rapidly, but couldn't really clear
up the ones that seemed to be deep in the skin near
the folds of my eyes (at the corners). I used it 3 times a day for about 10 days. After about 7 days, a new batch of bumps showed up, so I discontinued its use.
