Hello,

Thank you for using Healthcaremagic to post your health query.
I read carefully your question and I understand your concern.

- Mupirocin is an antibiotic ointment and is used for bacterial infections. It can be used 2-3 times/day locally to the affected area.

- Perrigo lotion indicated for the treatment of dry, scaly skin (xerosis) and ichthyosis vulgaris and for the temporary relief of itching associated with these conditions. It can be used by shaking it well first, apply to the affected areas and rub in thoroughly. Use twice daily.

- Ketoconazole cream is an antifungal and it is used for all kinds of fungal infections like ringworm infection, athletes foot, yeast infection, etc. It can be used twice/day thick layer

Please check the expiry date before use for each of them.

Hope this is helpful and answers your question.
Let me know if you need more clarifications.

Regards,
Dr. Papaqako
