Mupirocin skin and nasal oint have same active ingredient.
However the skin ointment may be too hasrh for the nasal mucosa due to the different inactive ingredient used to make the ointment.
Is it safe to use it in my nose? The insert says not to use in nares, but to use Bactroban in nares.
It is better to avoid using in the nose as it can cause more irritation.
I guess I will go back and make sure
Do most pharmacy's carry the nose kind?
yes it does
it is only meant to be used as per instruction.
Thank you very much!
