What is Fucidin?
According to the pharmacological classification, Fucidin is an antibiotic of a polycyclic structure, whose active component is fusidic acid. The active component has bactericidal and bacteriostatic actions, is effective against many strains of microorganisms. Read the tool manual.
The bacteriostatic antibiotic Fucidin contains fusidic acid, which belongs to the group of fusidines. These antimicrobial compounds disrupt protein synthesis by a bacterial cell, which leads to a restriction of the mobility of microorganisms. The drugs are effective against strains of Nocardia asteroide, Staphylococcus aureus, Clostridium, Corynebacterium, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Salmonella, Streptococcus.
The drug is ineffective in terms of E. coli, some types of proteins, salmonella, gram-negative bacteria, protozoa. Cream and ointment are applied externally, so the systemic absorption of fusidic acid is low. The active component does not enter the systemic circulation, therefore, data on the pharmacokinetics of the active substance are not presented.

- Do not apply in the eye area, because fusidic acid leads to conjunctival irritation.
- Due to the content of lanolin, potassium sorbate, butylhydroxyanisole and cetyl alcohol, local allergic reactions and contact dermatitis may appear on the skin.
- During antibiotic use, bacterial resistance may develop.
- Long-term or periodically repeated use of Futsidin increases the risk of antibiotic resistance (resistance).
- The use of funds does not affect the concentration of attention, therefore, during therapy, you can control the mechanisms.
Drugs are used with caution during pregnancy, during lactation, but are safe for use in childhood, starting with a newborn. According to the instructions, the use of cream or ointment is contraindicated in case of hypersensitivity to their components, the presence of allergies to the ingredients of the composition.
