Bacteria Home > Generic Bactroban
There are three different formulations for Bactroban; however, only the skin ointment is available in generic form. Bactroban skin cream and the nasal ointment are only available in brand-name form. It is unclear when (or if) this situation will change -- there are no patents preventing this. In addition, the skin ointment and the nasal ointment forms are not interchangeable.
