Buy Fucidin Cream

Fucidin cream contains fusidic acid, an antibiotic. It’s used to treat infected skin conditions like impetigo (a weeping, crusty and swollen patch of skin).


How Fucidin Cream works

Fucidin Cream contains fusidic acid, an antibiotic, to treat a variety of infected skin conditions. It works by killing bacteria that causes infections. It effectively treats skin infections like impetigo.



Always use Fucidin Cream exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. For topical use only. Do not swallow. Do not put it inside your body. Avoid contact with eyes. 


To use, remove the cap and check the seal is not broken before you first use the cream. Then push the spike in the cap through the seal on the tube. Always wash your hands before using Fucidin Cream. 


Rub the medicine gently on the skin. If you use it on your face, be careful to avoid your eyes. Unless you are using the cream to treat your hands, always wash your hands after using Fucidin Cream. Apply the cream twice each day, once in the morning and once in the evening. For more information on how much Fucidin Cream to apply, please refer to the patient information leaflet.


Side effects

Like all medicines, Fucidin Cream may cause side effects in some people, but these won’t affect everybody. You may experience a mild application site reaction, including itching, burning and irritation.


For more information on potential side effects, refer to the patient information leaflet. If you experience any side effects, including any not included in the patient information leaflet, you can report them using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.


Serious side effects

Seek emergency medical attention if you notice any signs of a severe allergic reaction, symptoms of which include swelling of the face and throat, skin rash, breathing difficulties and/or loss of consciousness. 



Do not smoke or go near naked flames while using Fucidin Cream as there is a risk of severe burns. Fabric (clothing, bedding, dressings, etc) that has been in contact with this product burns more easily and is a serious fire hazard. Washing clothing and bedding may reduce product build-up but not totally remove it.


Do not use Fucidin Cream

Fucidin Cream may be unsuitable for certain people. Do not use this cream if you are allergic to fusidic acid or any of the other listed ingredients. Talk to your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist before taking this medicine:


  • If you are taking, or have recently taken or might take any other medicines
  • If you are using this cream near your eyes or the eyes of a child.
  • If you use the cream over a long period of time or in large amounts, as it may increase the risk of side effects


Pregnancy and breastfeeding

If you are pregnant, or think you are pregnant, you must not use Fucidin Cream for a long time or in large amounts. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, you must ask your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist for advice before using any new medicine. 


Driving and operating machinery 

Typically, Fucidin Cream will have very little effect on your ability to drive or use machines. Check with your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist if you feel any side effects that may stop you from driving or using machines.
