1. For treatment of acute sinusitis refer to 'Management of Infection Guidance for Primary Care' (chapter 5 of the Joint Formulary).

2. Mupirocin (Bactroban®) should ideally be kept in reserve to avoid resistance developing. It is particularly useful in a hospital setting to treat MRSA. To avoid the development of resistance, the treatment course should not exceed 7 days and the course not repeated on more than one occasion. Please seek advice from Infection Control or Microbiology.

3. Childhood epistaxes from "Little's area" are just as effectively treated by Naseptin® cream or Vaseline® applied to the area for 1 week, as by nasal cautery.
