T-Bact 7.5 gm cream
T-Bact cream is indicated for the treatment of secondarily infected traumatic skin lesions. It contains a medicine called mupirocin calcium, a topical antibiotic used to treat infections in your skin in small cuts, wounds, or scraped skin by killing bacteria causing infections on your skin. The topical therapy should not exceed ten days. You must discuss with your doctor if you do not feel better or notice worsening during treatment.
How to use T-Bact 7.5 gm cream?
- Do not mix T-Bact 7.5 gm with any other external cream on the infected area of your skin, as this may reduce the effectiveness of mupirocin.
- You usually apply this cream to your skin three times a day. Wash your hands before applying the cream. Place a small amount of cream on a clean cotton swab or gauge.
- Apply the cream to the infected area of your skin.
- You can cover the treated area with suitable dressing unless your doctor has advised you to leave it uncovered.
- Wash your hand after applying the cream.
Use topical mupirocin for as long as your doctor recommends you. If you have any doubt, please ask your doctor. The bacteria usually get eliminated from your skin within ten days of starting the treatment. Do not use it for more than ten days. Throw away any cream that is left over after the treatment is over. See your doctor if your condition doesn’t improve within 3 to 5 days. If you use more of this product, speak to your doctor. If you accidentally swallow the formulation, contact your doctor immediately.
If you stop the treatment too early, not all the bacteria may have been killed, or they may continue to grow and multiply. Ask your doctor when to stop the treatment. If you have further questions regarding this medicine, please ask your doctor.
