It's important to thoroughly clean and dry the area before applying the ointment. Follow the instructions provided by your healthcare professional or as indicated on the medication label.

4. Duration of use: The duration of mupirocin anti bacterial ointment use will depend on the specific infection being treated. It's important to use the ointment for the full duration prescribed by your healthcare professional, even if the symptoms improve before completing the entire course. This helps to ensure the complete eradication of the bacteria and prevent the recurrence of the infection.

5. Side effects: Common side effects of mupirocin anti bacterial ointment are usually mild and may include skin irritation, redness, itching, or stinging at the application site. If you experience any severe or persistent side effects, it's important to consult your healthcare professional.
