Can bactroban (mupirocin) cause rash on buttocks-i have scant MRSA perianal area. On doxycycline- also using bact waiting for 2nd culture to rule out yeast/fungus?

In brief: Unlikely

Anyone "can" become allergic to anything, but as described, it is unlikely, and more likely that a fungal issue will be identified on culture.
Good luck!

In brief: Contact allergy

Rarely people can develop a contact allergy to bactroban, (mupirocin) but it is seen more commonly with neosporin based creams.
Your doctor can prescribe another topical antibiotic if needed.
