Why so many days for skin infection to heal for my dad. On antib & putting bactroban (mupirocin).What infection which looks like rash and some fluid. He has sugar?

Complications. By sugar I guess you meant diabetes which makes one more prone to get infections. You need to contact his doctor to find out if a systemic antibiotic may be needed. At times, an infectious disease consult may be required if the infection remains uncontrolled.
