Is it ok to often use antibiotic cream on the skin for itch? I often use fusidic acid cream

Not recommended: As harmless as an antibiotic cream might seem, it is actually absorbed into the skin and the rest of the body. That means different germs 'see' this medication and can generate resistance to it - which may be an issue down the road. (Hopefully never but you can't predict the future). Better to find out what exactly is causing the rash and base your treatment on that. A dermatologist may be of help ...Read more

Topical antibiotic: The face has an amazing ability to heal. The use of a topical antibiotic such as Foban is rarely indicated except with proven staphylococcal infections. I would suggest a mild cream such as Nivea massaged on the wound twice daily. ...Read more

Will foban delays the time of scabbing of a wound on face? I want the wound to have scab as soon as possible. Soshould I use foban cream or do nothin?

Wrong question: Throw away the foban. A scab is NOT desirable for best healing. Lubricate with vaseline or Aquaphor. Water is good for it. No antibiotic or antiseptic is of the slightest benefit except as lubrication. They may cause allergic reactions. Wounds heal better without any of them!!!! ...Read more

I had cut in corner of mouth. Antifungal cream didn't heal. Fusidic acid cream's working (3 days using). When can I stop using it? Can I kiss my bf?

Cuts are other thing: Angular cheilosis or cuts in the corner of the mouth can be fungal, can be caused by a vitamin deficiency, can be caused by an overclosed bite or dentition, or a number of problems. If the antifungal cream was used for 2 weeks and did not work may assume that it is the wrong medication or it is not fungal. An Oral Surgeon should be seen. ...Read more

I've allergic react on my face dt fusidic acid cream. There is red patches ;my derm gave me steroid cream, syst antiallerg ;can this leave any hyperpigm?

Depends on skin type: In hungary you are probably a lower fitzpatrick score type 1 or 2 and you should be able to tolerate any skin abuse. Red patches should clear up and leave no problem if this is an allergic response. Hyperpigmentation usually occurs secondary to an invasive skin procedure like chemical peel, cosmetic laser. ...Read more

I'm 17 weeks pregnant and I used Fucidin cream 2% (fusidic acid) inside my vagina on a sore about 4-5 times. Will it harm my baby?

Vag Administration: The amount of systemic absorption of this drug is likely low so I don't think you're doing much or any harm, especially at 17wks when the fetus has already formed all of is organs/structures. Animal studies and many years of clinical experience suggest that fusidic acid does not cause birth defects. ...Read more

What cream should I use to treat my boil?

What cream should I use to treat my boil?

Creams may not help: A boil is a collection of pus under the skin. Most of the time, they either come to a head and drain all by themselves, or a doctor needs to lance it (a procedure called I&D, or Incision and Drainage) for it to go away. Sometimes if there's lots of redness and pain around it you also need antibiotic pills. This is especially important if you have a fever. Please see a doctor as soon as you can. ...Read more
