This sale is for a brand new unopened tube of Mupirocin. I received an over-shipment of five brand new, unopened tubes having an expiration date of March 2025. Each brand new unopened tube has a sales price of $ 15.00; there are five (5) new tubes available for sale.

The following is a description from Wikipedia about Mupirocin's uses and applications:

Medical uses:

A tube of Bactroban Mupirocin is used as a topical treatment for bacterial skin infections (for example, boils, impetigo, or open wounds), which are typically due to infection by Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus pyogenes. It is also useful in the treatment of superficial methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections.[14] Mupirocin is inactive for most anaerobic bacteria, mycobacteria, mycoplasma, chlamydia, yeast, and fungi.[15]

Intranasal mupirocin before surgery is effective for prevention of post-operative wound infection with Staphylcoccus aureus and preventative intranasal or catheter-site treatment is effective for reducing the risk of catheter site infection in persons treated with chronic peritoneal dialysis.[16]

Just for the record: Mupirocin vs OTC Neosporin:

According to a 2000 study that was done by the SmithKline Beecham Pharmaceuticals, United Kingdom, Mupirocin has excellent activity against the major skin pathogens while having very few side effects.

According to a 2012 study which was conducted at the Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Biology, India, Neosporin had poor activity against Proteus spp, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and group D streptococci.
