I used my last bit of bactroban cream. Does anyone know of a comparable over the counter cream that is similiar? I've seen where I can order bactroban online but it is quite expensive.
Thanks for any info.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Bactroban covers staph aureus bacteria.
Similarly fusidic acid also covers staph aureus bacteria.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
