Muprocin

Were you looking for information on Mupirocin? Muprocin is a common misspelling of mupirocin.
 
Mupirocin (Bactroban®) is an antibiotic commonly used in the treatment of certain skin infections, namely impetigo and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. It works by interfering with the process bacteria use to make a certain protein; this keeps them from growing and multiplying.
 
This medication comes in three different forms: skin ointment, skin cream, and nasal ointment. The form a healthcare prescribes depends on the condition being treated. Most people have no problems with mupirocin, but side effects are possible. These are also dependent on the form used.
