Special Precautions
For external use on the skin only.
Avoid contact with the eyes. If the ointment comes in contact with the eyes, rinse out promptly and thoroughly with water.
Do not use at the site of central venous cannulation.
As with other polyethylene glycol-based ointments, do not use mupirocin ointment in conditions where large amounts of polyethylene glycol may be absorbed (e.g., in open wounds, extensive burns, broken skin), particularly in patients with moderate or severe renal impairment.
In cases of sensitivity or severe local irritation, discontinue mupirocin treatment and consult a physician.
As with other antibacterial products, long-term use may result in overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms, including fungi.
