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?

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

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

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

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

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 applied 0.5 hydrocortisone cream to my to the head of penis, pubic area and scrotum and now the head of penis and scrotum feels somewhat numb. Help?

Unusual: 0.5% Hydrocortisone is really too weak since even 1% is usually not potent enough. If the problem is persistent, you need to stop using it or perhaps try switching to an ointment. See a doctor if the problem fails to resolve or the numbness lasts more than a couple of day.
Make sure that the cream does not have a local anesthetic mixed with it. ...Read more

Most say 'remove': I know that the majority of doctors would advise removal and it couldn't be a bad idea. If you can call the doc you saw to clarify, do it. If you think it a wise idea, do it. Healing will be faster and cleanliness easier. Up to you — best wishes. ...Read more

Do! Allergic reaction on face in! Form red patchs dt. Top. Fusidic acid antib. Can leave any hypepig. Or marks when it fades? Btw im fitzpatrick score3

Probably not: You are having an allergic reaction to a topical antibiotic cream. Stop usung it and take an antihistamine if you are red and itching. Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) zyrtec, claritin, or Allegra can help this. When the allergic reaction stops it will go away and your skin will not hyperpigment. Avoid ever putting antibiotic cream on your face it is oily and can cause acne. ...Read more
