Bactroban Cream
0

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone heard if Bactroban helps heal DH?

Bactroban Cream (mupirocin calcium cream), 2% contains the dihydrate crystalline calcium hemi-salt of the antibiotic mupirocin.

I have not had this thought until tonight, but my 6 yr old got these bumps under her armpits that only went away with Bactroban. This was before going gluten free last year. Now she is gluten free and the bumps started coming back. She has been glutened recently. I started wondering if maybe it was DH or something gluten related but I had never heard of Bactroban helping.

Thanks.....

This is just my opinion. I don't know really much about DH. I don't see how bactroban would help it unless it got infected. My youngest son had to use bactroban cream in his nares when he had MRSA in his tonsils to kill any of it that may have colonized in his nose. Unless there are signs of infection, I don't think it is necessary. Could she have some kind of bacterial rash? Staph likes to colonize in dark warm areas like the nose and around the private areas.

This makes sense to me, I was thinking it might be a long shot but you know... you have those moments where you go "Uhhh?????", LOL. But she could have some other type of bacterial rash. If it comes back I think I better take her to the doc...

Thanks!

I wouldn't use Bactroban unless a doctor told me to, simply because over-use of antibiotics contributes to the development of antibiotic-resistant strains of everything. Bactroban is one of very few things left that work on MRSA, for instance, and it would be VERY bad if a Bactroban-resistant strain of MRSA evolved. (I say this as a 4-time veteran of MRSA infections!)
