Indications and usage:
Fucidin (Fusidic Acid) cream is used to treat conditions where the skin is infected by germs (bacteria), such as:
Impetigo (a weeping, crusty and swollen patch of skin)
Infected dermatitis (inflammation of the skin) and spots
Infected cuts and grazes
Sensitivity to fusidic acid, its salts such as sodium fusidate, and inactive ingredients of Fucidin cream.
Dosage and administration:
A small amount of Fucidin ointment (sodium fusidate) or cream (fusidic acid) should be applied to the lesion 3 or 4 times daily until favourable results are achieved. Whenever the lesion is to be covered with a gauze dressing, less frequent applications (1 or 2 daily) may be used. In impetigo contagiosa, it has not been shown necessary to remove the crusts before application of Fucidin ointment or cream.
When required, incision and drainage of infected skin lesions should be carried out before treatment with Fucidin ointment or cream.
Dosage forms and strengths:
The active substance of Fucidin cream is fusidic acid. 1 gram of cream contains 20 mg of fusidic acid.
The active substance of Fucidin ointment is sodium fusidate. 1 gram of ointment contains 20 mg of sodium fusidate.
The other ingredients of Fucidin cream are butylhydroxyanisole (E320), cetyl alcohol, glycerol, liquid paraffin, polysorbate 60, potassium sorbate, purified water, all-rac-alpha-tocopherol, hydrochloric acid and white soft paraffin.
Overdosage has not been known to occur during topical therapy with Fucidin ointment (sodium fusidate) or cream (fusidic acid).
Warnings and precautions:
Treatment of severe or refractory skin lesions should be supplemented with the administration of a systemic antibacterial agent. Use of topical antibiotics occasionally allows overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms. If this occurs, or irritation or sensitization develops, treatment with Fucidin ointment (sodium fusidate) or cream (fusidic acid) should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted. Fucidin ointment or cream should not be used in or near the eye because of the possibility of conjunctival irritation.
Adverse reactions, side effects:
In patients with dermatoses treated with Fucidin ointment (sodium fusidate), mild irritation that did not usually require discontinuance of therapy has been occasionally reported. The application of Fucidin ointment to deep leg ulcers has been associated with pain. Reports of hypersensitivity reactions have been rare.
To report suspected adverse reactions of Fucidin cream and ointment, contact LEO pharmaceutical company or your local FDA.
Use in specific populations:
Use in pregnancy
The safety of Fucidin in the treatment of infections during pregnancy has not been established. If the administration of this medication to pregnant patients is considered to be necessary, its use requires that the potential benefits be weighed against the possible hazards to the foetus. There is evidence to suggest that the drug can penetrate the placental barrier and that Fucidin is detectable in the milk of nursing mothers. The safety of this drug for the treatment of infections in women who are breastfeeding has not been established.
Driving and using machines
Usually your medicine will have very little effect on your ability to drive or use machines. Check with your doctor if you feel any side effect that may stop you from driving or using machines.
