How Should Bactroban Be Stored?

Most Bactroban products should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

As with all antibiotics, it is important to avoid missing doses. If you do miss a dose, simply take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
