Fusikab 2% Ointment


Overview

Introduction of Fusikab Ointment

Fusikab 2% Ointment is an antibiotic. It is used in the treatment of bacterial skin infections such as impetigo and infected dermatitis. It stops the bacteria from growing, and prevents the infection from spreading.

Fusikab 2% Ointment should be used in the dose and duration as prescribed by your doctor. This medicine is for external use only and should be used regularly to get the most benefit from it. Don’t use more than you need as it won’t clear your condition faster and some side effects may be increased. The affected area should be clean and dry before application of the ointment. You must wash your hands thoroughly before and after applying this medicine.

It may cause skin irritation, rash, burning sensation and redness immediately following application. However, these side effects are temporary and usually subside on their own. Inform your doctor if they persist for a longer duration.

Avoid direct contact of cream or ointment with your eyes. In case of direct contact, wash your eyes with water immediately and seek immediate medical attention. Don't cover the area being treated with airtight dressings such as bandages unless directed by a doctor, as this may increase the risk of side effects. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or are breastfeeding.

FAQs

Q. Is Fusikab an antifungal or a steroid? What is it used for?

Fusikab is neither an antifungal nor a steroid. It is an antibiotic which is effective against bacteria. It is used to treat bacterial infections of the skin like impetigo (a weeping, crusty and swollen patch of skin), infected cuts and grazes and infected dermatitis (skin becomes red, slightly swollen and painful due to infection).

Q. For how long is it required to use Fusikab?

Use the Fusikab for the time advised by your doctor. The treatment with Fusikab usually stretches for 1-2 weeks although it can be longer in some cases.

Q. What precautions should I take while applying Fusikab?

Fusikab is meant to be applied only on skin. Always wash your hands before applying it. Unless you are using the cream to treat your hands, always wash your hands after using Fusikab. Do not insert it into your body or swallow it. If it accidentally enters your eyes, wash your eyes thoroughly with water. If irritation persists, contact your doctor immediately.

Q. What is drug resistance? Does it mean that even Fusikab may turn ineffective?

Sometimes the bacteria get modified in your body and the medicine stops working. This is called drug resistance. Extended or recurrent use of a medicine may increase the risk of developing resistance to that medicine. Your body may develop resistance for Fusikab too. Therefore, to prevent drug resistance, you should use Fusikab in the right amount and for the duration recommended by the doctor.

Q. What should prompt me to stop using Fusikab?

If you develop a severe allergic reaction after using Fusikab, wash the area thoroughly and do not use the medicine again. The symptoms of an allergic reaction include severe rash, difficulty in breathing, stinging or burning in the eye which does not go away, and swelling of face (especially around the eyes or eyelids). You should immediately seek medical support of your doctor or go to a nearby hospital.
