Fucibet Cream 30g contains two active ingredients, fusidic acid and betamethasone valerate. Fucibet is used to treat conditions where the skin is inflamed (eczema or dermatitis) and also infected by germs (bacteria).
About Fusidic Acid
Fusidic acid is an antibiotic medicine. It works by entering bacterial cells and interfering with the production of proteins that the bacteria need to divide and multiply. It does not directly kill the bacteria, but leaves them unable to increase in numbers. The existing bacteria eventually die or are destroyed by the immune system. Fusidic acid is included in this preparation to treat the bacterial infection that can sometimes occur in eczema.
Betamethasone is a type of medicine called a corticosteroid. Corticosteroids are medicines used for reducing inflammation. Skin inflammation in eczema occurs due to the irritation of the skin, and is caused by the release of various substances involved in the immune system. These substances cause blood vessels to widen, resulting in the affected area becoming red, swollen, itchy and painful.
When betamethasone is applied to the skin it works by acting inside the cells to decrease the release of these inflammatory substances. This reduces swelling, redness and itch. Betamethasone is a potent corticosteroid.
What is it used for?
Eczema infected with bacteria.

I had eczema really bad as a child but its pretty much been gone for a few years now but now i have contact dermatitis on my lips and eye lids and it can get unbelievably discomforting and painful making my skin dry and red and my eyes extremely sensitive to light, causing them to water constantly and this could go on for weeks but after my doctor gave me Fucibet, after only a few hours it was pretty much gone! every time it flares up this cream comes to the rescue! Id pay ridiculous amounts of money for this magic In a tube.
