Fluticin Ointment is a combination of three medicines: Fluticasone Topical and Mupirocin Topical which treat skin infections. Fluticasone Topical is a steroid medicine. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Mupirocin Topical is an antibiotic. It kills bacteria by destroying the bacterial cell membrane.
Fluticin Ointment may be unsafe to use during pregnancy. Animal studies have shown adverse effects on the foetus, however, there are limited human studies. The benefits from use in pregnant women may be acceptable despite the risk. Please consult your doctor.
Fluticin Ointment is probably safe to use during lactation.
Limited human data suggests that the drug does not represent a significant risk to the baby. The baby's skin should not come into direct contact with the treated area of skin. Water-miscible cream/gel is preferred as ointments may expose the baby to harmful effects of Fluticin Ointment via licking.
