Comment:
I have used Mupirocin since April. I have a hole in my leg caused by an injury in March/14.Oral antibiotics have been tried. Three different ones, then this. No good results. I am very concerned and do not know where to go from here. My leg developed cellulitis from the injury and I am no healing. Any new suggestions?

My physician sent me to Infectious Disease doctor for MRSA. He prescribed Mupirocin 2%, nasal application and it worked great! It also helps if you cut down or out on carbohydrate (sugars) consumption!

Comment:
Lump just inside my nostril, small but increasing in size, painful to the touch. Very alarming. Dr. prescribed Mupirocin. Within hours the sensitivity of the lump decreased, within days the lump diminished and disappeared. On revisit, Dr. advised it might return and would need to continue treatment. It never returned. I wish all my meds worked this well!
