What is Fucidin Cream?

Fucidin Cream is a topical medication that contains the active ingredient fusidic acid. It is used to treat skin infections such as eczema and dermatitis. The cream is applied directly to the affected area of the skin.

What is Fucidin Cream used for?

Fucidin Cream is primarily used for the treatment of eczema and dermatitis. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria that cause these skin conditions. In some cases, it may also be prescribed for other skin infections.

How does Fucidin Cream work?

Fucidin Cream contains fusidic acid, which is an antibiotic that works by interfering with the production of proteins that are essential for the bacteria to survive. This action stops the growth of the bacteria, allowing the body’s natural immune system to fight the infection and reduce the symptoms of eczema and dermatitis.

Who is Fucidin Cream suitable for?

Fucidin Cream is suitable for adults and children. However, it may not be suitable for everyone. It is important to consult a doctor or pharmacist before using Fucidin Cream, especially if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have any underlying health conditions.

How to apply Fucidin Cream

  1. Clean and dry the affected area of the skin.
  2. Apply a thin layer of Fucidin Cream to the affected area and gently rub it in.
  3. Wash your hands after applying the cream, unless your hands are the affected area.

Apply Fucidin Cream 2-3 times a day, or as directed by your doctor. The duration of treatment will depend on the severity of your condition, but it is important to complete the full course of treatment as prescribed.
