Fucibet Cream (Fusidic Acid/Betamethasone)
What is Fucibet Cream (Fusidic Acid/Betamethasone) used for?
Fucibet Cream (Fusidic Acid/Betamethasone) is a topical medication prescribed to treat eczema or dermatitis that is infected with bacteria. The medication contains two medications that work together to treat your symptoms. Betamethasone prevents the actions of enzymes in the body that cause the pain, swelling, and irritation associated with these conditions. Fusidic acid destroys the cell walls of bacteria and prevents its reproduction to allow the immune system to eliminate the infection naturally. Your doctor may also prescribe this medication to be used along with others or for the treatment of other unlisted conditions, as well.
How should I use Fucibet Cream (Fusidic Acid/Betamethasone)?
Fucibet Cream (Fusidic Acid/Betamethasone) should be used according to your doctor`s instructions to get the safest and most effective results from treatment. The cream is normally administered twice each day, but your particular instructions will depend on your age, weight, health condition, and the severity of your symptoms. To use the medicine rinse the area being treated to remove any dirt or loose skin, apply a small amount of medicine to the skin, gently massage it into the skin, and leave the area uncovered allowing any excess medicine to evaporate. Thoroughly wash your hands after each application to prevent the medication to contact any areas not being treated or mucous membranes. Ask your doctor any questions you have about the medicine to ensure the correct administration.
