Brief Answer:
Use mupirocine

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Calmoseptine is a moisture barrier ointment.
It might take one or two months for complete recovery.
As I mentioned earlier you should use ointment mupirocine for faster relief.
Use mupirocine in morning and calmoseptine in night.
This should help you.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
