First off, bactroban's active agent is mupirocin
While the typical triple antibiotic ointments/neosporin contain: Neomycin/Polymyxin B and Bacitracin
Were you prescribed Bactroban? Because if you were i can not recommend you to stop using that ointment
You should always follow your prescribing physician's instructions.
I was prescribed it awhile ago but I ran out and really didn't feel like waiting to go to the doctor to get it re prescribed
If you were previously prescribe that specific ointment it was likely because that is of either the proper strength or of the right antibiotic (not all are correct for each type of infection) for the condition you were diagnosed with.
If you can't wait for an appointment there are drop-in clinics which can provide diagnosis and treatment for common medical problems.
For example the minute clinic at CVS is one near me that does that
Even on a superbowl sunday you could be seen there
However, as a disclaimer, if you are having signs of a systemic infection you should be seen at the ER as that can be very dangerous.
Let me know if you have further questions, details or need clarification, just use reply.......
