Prescribed Centany (Mupirocin Ointment 2%) for cyst

hey,
anyone ever prescribed this for a cyst? i think its a topical antibiotic. i had two cysts on my chin, and i had cortizone injections. the shots have helped a lot so far and its not even 48 hours, they are down in size considerably and the pain is gone (the chin area can be very painful if you have a cyst).

anyway, the derm originally only wanted to give me the Centany, but i talked him into the shots. i told him to write the Centany RX and i would use it as well.

this derm is a putz and i only went to him for the shots (he lives close to me).
should i bother to use it on the cysts? will it help at all with the healing?

thanx for any help
