I met with an accident and had deep wounds on the leg(half cm).The dressing was initially done with betadine but i could not see much improvement in would healing process.The doctor then asked me to use T-bact(2% mupirocin).would like to know whether this would be useful in healing.also would like to know the mechanism of action of this ointment.secondly,i applied ointment thrice. and i see that the ointment is accumilated (not absorbed)in the wound(in the groove) and i am finding it difficult to clean it it ok if it remains that way.Is there an efficient method of cleaning it up.

It is an antibiotic ointment that is used to treat, or prevent topical skin infections. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including skin redness, rash, irritation, burning, and flaking.

Sapna, how were you told to apply it and how much are you applying? It sounds like you might be using too much. Are you on any other medications?
