is it safe to use mupirocin from time to time to get rid of bacterial/fungal infections between your toes? (it's the only thing that seems to work.)

Bacteria or Fungus..: If it seems to be working then good for you. Mupirocin is an antibacterial medication. That means that is has no effect of fungal infections. You can use a topical anti fungal in conjunction with the mupirocin for optimum effect. Thank you for using Healthtap.
