    Bactroban now comes as a CREAM...as well as an ointment. Both provide 2% mupirocin...for Staph or Strep skin infections.

    The OINTMENT is approved for impetigo...the CREAM is for infected cuts, abrasions, or sutured wounds.

    Bactroban works about as well as oral cephalexin (Keflex) for topical skin infections.
