Introduction

Fucidin Ointment is an antibiotic. It is used in the treatment of bacterial skin infections. It relieves the symptoms of the infection by stopping the further growth of the causative microorganisms.

Fucidin 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 burning sensation, skin irritation, itching and redness immediately following application over the affected area, as side effects of this medicine. However, these are temporary and usually subside on their own. Inform your doctor if they do not resolve or 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. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or are breastfeeding.
