Faster Healing after Surgery

Using Mupirocin/Bactroban ointment after a surgical dermatology procedure 

Mupirocin 2% ointment, more commonly known as Bactroban, is an incredibly effective and safe antibiotic cream that can be used on both natural and post-surgical wounds.

Dr. Dupati often likes to use mupirocin 2% ointment after surgeries on the head, neck, lower legs, and back. Mupirocin 2% ointment also has a very low allergic potential, unlike other commonly used triple antibiotic ointments sold over the counter.

In addition to its antibacterial effects, mupirocin has the ability to decrease local inflammation and consequently minimize the development of a scar. While mupirocin 2% ointment is safe to use in both children and adults, it is still a prescription medication.

Feel free to ask if mupirocin 2% ointment is right for you at your next appointment!
