Dosage and Administration

Follow your physician`s instructions about how and when to use Bactroban Ointment. Please read the direction label carefully. Bactroban Ointment must not be taken orally (by mouth). If you have any questions about Bactroban Ointment and how to use it, please ask your physician or pharmacist.

Always wash your hands before and after applying Bactroban Ointment. Squeeze a small amount onto your finger-tip and apply to the affected area three times each day. Your physician may tell you to cover the area with a dressing after you have applied Bactroban Ointment.

Use Bactroban Ointment for as long as your physician or pharmacist tells you to. If your infection does not improve within 1 week of starting treatment or becomes worse, check with your pharmacist or physician.

If you forget an application, apply some Bactroban Ointment as soon as you can, then continue as before.

Side effects

Besides their main effect, medicines may have some unwanted effects. Unwanted effects do not always occur in every person.

Like other medicines, Bactroban Ointment may cause some side effects. If they occur they are most likely to be mild, and may become less after a few days. However, some may be serious and need medical attention.

Most unwanted effects reported after using Bactroban Ointment are mild and occur in the area where the ointment is applied. Some people may develop itching, dryness, burning, redness, stinging, pain or swelling when applying Bactroban Ointment, but this should quickly go away.

Very rarely Bactroban can cause an allergic reaction. Signs of an allergic reaction may include an itchy skin rash, shortness of breath and swelling of the face or tongue. Contact a physician immediately if you have these symptoms. Other side effects not listed may also occur in some people. Ask your pharmacist or physician about any effect that is troublesome or ongoing.

Precautions

Do not use Bactroban Ointment to treat infections in or near the eyes, nostrils (in babies) or mouth. If you have a cannulae (a tube that is inserted surgically into the body that allows for fluid to enter or escape): do not use Bactroban around it. If Bactroban Ointment is accidentally applied to the eyes, wash the eyes thoroughly with water.

Bactroban Ointment contains polyethylene glycol which can be absorbed by the body from open wounds and damaged skin. Polyethylene glycol is removed from the body by the kidneys. Do not use Bactroban Ointment on large areas of broken or damaged skin, especially if you suffer from reduced kidney function.

Do not mix Bactroban Ointment with any other preparation. They may prevent Bactroban Ointment from working.

If you have an allergic or hypersensitive reaction, seek emergency medical attention. Possible symptoms include difficulty breathing, difficulty swallowing, swelling, chest tightness, skin rashes, and hives.
