Always wash and dry your hands thoroughly before use. Rub the cream gently into the skin, ensuring you avoid your eyes if you are using Fucibet on your face. Unless you are using the cream to treat the skin on your hands, always wash your hands after use.

Like all medicines, this product can cause side effects, although not everybody will experience them. Seek immediate advice from your doctor or nurse if you experience any of the following:

  • You have difficulty breathing
  • Your face or throat swell
  • Your skin develops a severe rash



Do NOT use this product if you are allergic to any of the ingredients (see ingredients tab for full list) or to treat:

  • A skin condition caused by a virus, such as cold sores or chickenpox
  • Skin conditions caused only by bacteria, such as boils or spots
  • Skin conditions caused by tuberculosis (TB) or syphilis
  • A skin condition called perioral dermatitis - this is a red, spotty rash around your mouth or chin
  • To treat a skin condition called rosacea - this is redness and inflammation over your nose and cheeks - ask your doctor if you are unsure

Speak to your doctor, pharmacist or nurse before and during use of this medicine:

  • Do NOT use this cream on yourself or a child for more than 2 weeks to avoid bacteria becoming resistant to the antibiotic and to avoid the steroid causing side effects
  • Take special care if you are going to use this medicine near your eyes or the eyes of a child - if the cream gets into the eye, this can lead to glaucoma

  • You must NOT use the medicine for a long time on your face

  • Unless advised to do so by your doctor, do not use this medicine on thin skin, skin ulcers, broken veins or acne
  • Adrenal suppression may occur - signs are tiredness, depression and anxiety - this can be reversed by stopping Fucibet

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Fucibet Cream used for?

Fucibet contains 2 different types of medicine. It contains fusidic acid which is a type of antibiotic that kills infection-causing bacteria.

Fucibet also contains betamethasone which is a corticosteroid (steroid) which helps to reduce swelling, redness or itchiness.

The effective formula can be used to treat skin that is inflamed due to eczema or dermatitis and is also infected by bacteria.

What is eczema?

Eczema is a skin condition that causes patches of skin to become dry, flaky, irritated and cracked.

It usually affects the front and back of knees and elbows, but it can occur on any part of the body.

Eczema tends to first occur in childhood and is a long-term skin condition that can cause discomfort, but some people find that they grow out of it as they get older.

Certain irritants and germs can cause symptoms of eczema to worsen, so it is essential that you keep your skin clean and hydrated.

There is no cure for eczema, but there are several steps you can take to help manage your skin:

  • Moisturise your skin - use moisturisers, ointments or lotions that contain emollients to lock in moisture, prevent your skin from drying out and reducing the need to itch
  • Avoid itching - itching the skin can cause germs to infect the skin, making symptoms worse
  • Avoid long, hot showers/baths - hot water dries out the skin
  • Use a soap substitute - harsh soaps can strip the skin of its natural moisture which can exacerbate symptoms of eczema
  • Use an emollient bath oil - it will prevent your skin from drying out in bathing and can help to manage symptoms of eczema

If your eczema is severe speak to your doctor, who can prescribe a suitable treatment.

Do I need a prescription for this medication?
