How Bactroban Cream and Ointment work
Bactroban 15g caream and ointment both contain the active ingredient mupirocin, which is an antibacterial medicine. It is used to treat to treat skin infections caused by certain bacteria, in particular methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). The mupirocin works by affecting the bacteria's production of certain proteins that are necessary for their survival. It causes the bacteria to produce abnormal and faulty proteins. This ultimately kills the bacteria and clears up the infection.
