Fucidin (Fusidic Acid)Drug Uses
Fucidin is effective against several bacterial species and used in the treatment of infections such as impetigo (characterised by blistering and yellowish-brown crusting of the skin), whitlow (paronchya) and inflammation of hair follicles (sycosis). It is also used to treat eczema or dermatitis that has become infected.How to use
Use Fucidin as directed by your doctor.
- Apply a small amount to the lesion three or four times daily until favourable results are achieved. If your doctor has directed you to cover the lesion with a gauze dressing, less frequent applications (one or two daily) may be used. Take care to avoid the eyes if the medication is being applied to the face.
Fucidin is an antibiotic medicine. It works by entering bacterial cells and interfering with the production of proteins that the bacteria need to divide and multiply. It does not directly kill the bacteria, but leaves them unable to increase in numbers. The existing bacteria eventually die or are destroyed by the immune system. Fusidic acid is included in this preparation to treat the bacteria that sometimes infect inflammatory skin diseases.Missed Dose
If you miss a dose of Fucidin, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.Storage
Store Fucidin at room temperature, between 68 and 77 degrees F (20 and 25 degrees C). Store away from heat, moisture, and light. Keep Fucidin out of the reach of children and away from pets.
