Advantages Worked overnight
Disadvantages Strong, steroids
My little boy suffers from eczema and this time last week he had a really severe flare up on his cheeks. They were red raw and looked amazingly sore and to be honest he looked a bit like a burns victim. He has scabs growing over the skin but then it was also wet with moisture as it was pussing too. As he is only 5 months old he was not aware what was happening so he was scratching the infected area and making it worse and nothing I seemed to use on it made it any better.I decided to go to see the doctor who prescribed Fucidin H cream. Now, by all accounts this is pretty strong stuff as it contains a steroid and I had been warned about the dangers of using it but it was the only thing that was going to work for him. According tot he leaflet that came with this cream, Fucidin H cream contains two different types of medicine. One medicine is called fusidic acid. It is a type of antibiotic. The other medicine is called hydrocortisone acetate. It is a type of corticosteroid. These two medicines work at the same time in different ways. Fucidin H cream works by:
The antibiotic killing germs (bacteria) that cause infections.
The corticosteroid reducing any swelling, redness or itchiness of your skin.
The cream has really worked. It is only available on prescription and is free for under 16s. Like anything of this nature though I suggest taking to your doctor first before starting a course of this medicine.
