Hello,Thanks for writing here.

Flutibact contain mupirocin which is a topical antibiotic.

Other content is fluticasone which is a steroid.

As you are suspecting a bacterial infection you need to apply only antibiotic cream and not steroid .

In fact steroid cream can worsen the infections.

So flutibact is best avoided.

You can apply a plane mupirocin cream instead.

Hope this will solve your query.Take care.
