In brief: Bactroban (mupirocin)

Sometimes use of Bactroban (mupirocin) Cream twice daily to the areas of bump on the face will help with the healing process if you had already been treated with systemic antibiotics for mrsa.

A critical part of your care is to determine if you really have MRSA. If no one has ever done an actual culture which grew MRSA then there is no proof you have MRSA. Before you allow someone to treat you for MRSA make sure it is actually MRSA. If you have not yet seen a dermatologist then this would be a good time to do so.

I would recommend you see a dermatologist and get this analyzed.
Perhaps you need a different antibiotic or treatment regimen. It might be a good idea to consider having either a culture performed or maybe a small biopsy if the diagnosis is in doubt in order to rule out other conditions.
