What is Fucidin?
Fucidin is prescribed for bacterial infections of the skin such as inflamed eczema and impetigo. But it is also suitable for the treatment of cold sores or the scalp. The active ingredient in Fucidin is fusidic acid. This is an antibiotic and fights bacteria. It hinders the production of proteins that the bacteria need in order to grow. Fucidin treats skin infection and restores the skin within a few days.
Always follow your doctor's instructions when using Fucidin creme. It depends on the condition how often you need to apply the product and how much. Usually the creme is administered on the affected skin 3 times a day. This applies to both adults and children.
Clean the skin before applying the cream and wash your hands. Subsequently smear a small amount on the skin. Afterward, wash your hands again to prevent spreading on other parts of the skin. Avoid contact with eyes, mouth and nose to prevent irritation. A Fucidin treatment lasts 1 to 2 weeks. This depends on the severity of the infection. Sometimes it is necessary to use the drug for a longer period of time, this goes in consultation with the doctor.
Impetigo occurs mainly in young children and is highly contagious. Treat this infection on time to prevent spreading of the disease. Fucidin is often prescribed when the impetigo worsens and will not go away on its own.
Fucidin (fusidic acid) may potentially cause side effects. These arise mainly around the area of skin where the creme is applied. Itching, burning, stinging, irritation or redness are symptoms that may occur. These are usually not serious by nature. If you are unsure or if you notice that there are other side effects, please contact your doctor.
