Can mupirocin affect penis?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here..I was recently diagnosed with impetigo in my groin area which started with jock itch. It now has spread to my testicles and now the shaft of my penis and the head. What can I put on my penis to stop it from getting worse? I am on antibiotics and mupirocin. I'm afraid to put the mupirocin on my penis because it stings my groin. Will it damage my penis if I put mupirocin?

Hi,

No, It does not affect your penis., the stings can be due to any other bacterial infection or unhygienic activities.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
