1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question

The drug you mentioned above is a type of topical antibiotic containing mupirocin. Mupirocin is used to treat infections of the skin, such as ulcers, festering ulcers, or open germ contaminated wounds because it works by suppressing the growth of pathological germs locally on the skin.

If only in the form of minor blisters and tend not to risk being contaminated with germs, it is considered inappropriate if given this type of topical drug. If the wound is scratched or scratched clean enough, then it is treated with antiseptic fluid and let the wound remain dry by covering it with sterile gauze. However, if the wound appears dirty, there is an open wound, and the size is large enough so that there is a risk of infection then the topical antibiotic can be given.

The principle of good wound care is to keep the wound clean, keep the wound moist by using proper wound dressing, and good nutrition. Beware if the wound does not heal, pus, smell, or the child has a fever then immediately consult a doctor to get adequate treatment.

That's all, hope you can help. Wassalam.
