hello. your baby is suffering from impetigo. YES he is getting right treatment. he was suffering from stap aureus infection. and after fever and cough infection remaind there. T bact ointment treat bacteria in the nostrils of patients during an outbreak of severe staph infection. This can help prevent the growth of staph bacteria in patients with a high risk of infection. A small amount of Mupirocin ointment should be applied to the affected area 3 times daily. The area treated may be covered with a gauze dressing if desired. Patients not showing a clinical response within 3 to 5 days should be re-evaluated. for more queries you can contact again.
thank you. take cares.
