Can mupirocin ointment usp 2 be used for diaper rash?

Yes

Diaper_rash
There are some diaper rashes that likely need mupirocin, usually those that look like pustules or sores. Most of the flat red ones, though, will get better with regular zinc-oxide based diaper ointments. Your doctor can often tell by looking which would be better.

Will mupirocin ointment usp 2% help for staph infection?

Depends

Bactroban
Depends on where the staph is. If it is a superficial infection, it may; however, staph is notorious for its propensity to cause abscess, in which case the mupirocin will only have limited effect; surgery is treatment for a staph abscess.
