Mometasone + Fusidic Acid is a combination of two medicines: Mometasone and Fusidic Acid, which treats skin infections. Mometasone is a steroid medicine. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Fusidic Acid is an antibiotic. It stops bacterial growth by preventing the synthesis of essential proteins required by the bacteria to carry out vital functions.

No, do not stop taking Hhfudic and complete the full course of treatment even if you feel better. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cured.
Q. What are the precautions needed to be taken while using Hhfudic?
Hhfudic should not be used on the face. Do not use the medication for longer than the advised periods of time.

Q. How to use Hhfudic?
Follow the directions given by the doctor. Apply the medicine thinly and in sufficient quantity to cover the affected areas.
