I'm a 35yr old female w/ cystic acne and this med. has been the best thing I've found. I've tried everything over the counter and none of it helped at all in fact some of it made it worse. This med is great, however it is very costly, w/ out Ins. it cost 144.00, after my Ins. it was still 50.00 but it's worth it!!!!!

I was using this drug after having my large toe nail removed due to a fungus. After using Bactroban for 3 days I began to experience a burning sensation after appling the med. My toe was not improving and I was having more pain with the med than without. So after 9 days of suffering I decided to stop using Bactroban. My toe is now getting better.

My 23 month old daughter's dermatologist prescribed this to help clear up her "open" areas from her severe eczema. There has been no improvement and actually since yesterday I think her skin is worse.
