What is Fucidin H Cream?

Fucidin H Cream is a topical cream used to treat inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis, where bacteria also infect the skin.

The cream contains fusidic acid and hydrocortisone acetate that treats the infection and reduce skin irritation and redness. Hydrocortisone acetate is a type of medicine called a topical corticosteroid and is classed as a mild corticosteroid.

This medicine is only available by prescription from your doctor, which can be purchased online after completing a quick consultation. Fucidin is then delivered straight to your door, hassle-free.

How does Fucidin H Cream work?

Fucidin H Cream contains two active ingredients: fusidic acid (an antibiotic) and hydrocortisone acetate (a corticosteroid).

The cream is used to treat skin conditions such as eczema or dermatitis, where a bacterial infection is also present.

  • The fusidic acid treats the bacterial infection by interfering with the bacteria's ability to multiply. By doing so, the bacteria eventually die off or are killed by the immune system.
  • Hydrocortisone acetate is a mild corticosteroid that is commonly prescribed to treat eczema and dermatitis. When an allergy or irritation occurs, the skin cells release inflammatory substances that cause the skin to become red, itchy and swollen. Hydrocortisone acetate reduces skin inflammation, providing relief from itching and swelling.

You should always use Fucidin H Cream exactly as advised by your doctor. If no improvement is seen within 7 days, consult your doctor.

How to use Fucidin H Cream

  • Apply a thin layer of cream to the affected area(s) of skin twice a day, as directed by your doctor
  • Wash your hands thoroughly after using this medicine
  • Do not use this medicine for longer or more often than your doctor has recommended
  • Take care to avoid getting it in your eyes, nose or mouth. If this occurs, rinse with cold water.
  • If you need to use dressings with this medicine, always cleanse the skin before applying the cream and follow with a fresh dressing
  • Use with care in children

When applying other moisturisers to the skin, wait at least 30 minutes before or after applying Fucidin H Cream to prevent the moisturiser from diluting the medicine's active ingredients.

This medicine should not be applied at the same time as other topical medicines. Wait several minutes between applying each product to prevent them mixing on the skin.

Fucidin H Cream should not be used for periods of longer than 2 weeks. It contains an antimicrobial that can increase the risk of microorganisms becoming resistant to this medicine, if used for longer periods of time.
