Corticosteroid/antibacterial - Potent (group 3)

Fucibet Cream

Fucibet Cream

Fucibet Cream combines the well-known anti-inflammatory and antipruritic effects of betamethasone with the topical antibacterial action of fusidic acid. Betamethasone valerate is a topical steroid that is rapidly effective in inflammatory dermatoses that normally respond to this form of therapy. More refractory conditions can often be treated successfully. When applied topically, fusidic acid is effective against Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus, Corynebacterium, Neisseria and certain clostridia and Bacteroides. Concentrations of 0.03-0.12µg per ml inhibit nearly all strains of S. aureus. The antibacterial activity of fusidic acid is not diminished in the presence of betamethasone
