A 47-year-old female asked:
Am using bactroban (mupirocin) for skin rashes from which some fluid comes after a cut on toe.Was wondering if I put neosporin powder over bactroban (mupirocin) will it harm?

Treat and Watch.: There is a possibility that the skin is inflamed and not infected. If you have been treating the toe this way and have seen little to no improvement, then maybe it is time for a change. Non-infected rashes might respond better to cortisone based cream. It is possible to alternate applications and see if it starts to clear up. Watch for increasing severity, in which case, have it looked at.
