Fucibet Cream

Yet another effective remedy to overcome the discomfort caused by skin conditions like eczema and dermatitis is the Fucibet cream. The two active ingredients include an anti-inflammatory steroid called Betamethasone Valerate 0.1%, and an anti-bacterial agent called Fusidic acid 2%.


Fucibet is an effective topical medicine that is recommended to treat bacterial infections of the skin. If you are suffering from infected eczema or dermatitis, Fucibet can help you tackle your skin problems and achieve your goals. This medication contains two active ingredients, namely – Betamethasone Valerate 0.1% and Fusidic Acid 2%. Fusidic acid is a type of antibiotic and Betamethasone Valerate is a topical corticosteroid. Together, they help reduce inflammation, redness or swelling in your skin and clear up a bacterial infection.

Fucibet Cream is used to treat skin problems such as eczema and dermatitis. It is primarily recommended to those suffering from a bacterial infection accompanied by swelling or redness of the skin. Our doctors at MedsNow will help you understand if your skin problems result from a bacterial infection or some other factor. Cases of infected eczema, dermatitis, and germ infections can effectively be relieved with the use of Fucibet.

Fucibet Cream contains two active ingredients that work together to treat bacterial skin infection and reduce the inflammation of the skin. The first ingredient is called Betamethasone Valerate, and it falls under the category of topical corticosteroid medicines. Betamethasone Valerate works on the skin cells that produce substances that trigger inflammation, irritation, and redness on the skin.

The second ingredient is called Fusidic Acid. Fusidic acid is an antibiotic medicine that treats bacterial infections. This medication works by inhibiting the skin cells from producing essential proteins that bacteria use to grow. In the absence of the essential proteins, bacteria on the skin perish, the infection stops increasing and slowly clears up.

Fucibet is effective for treating infected eczema, dermatitis and other bacterial skin infections. It not only helps clear the infection it also reduces the irritation, pain, swelling, and discomfort associated with the condition.

Fucibet Cream is a potent medication designed to offer relief and cure from bacterial skin infections, including infected eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, etc. It reduces the inflammation, itching, redness, pain, and discomfort experienced in such conditions. Fucibet has various researched and documented benefits, including:

  • Reduces inflammation in bacterial skin infections such as infected eczema and dermatitis.
  • Reduces inflammation of the skin, irritation, swelling, and redness resulting from bacterial skin infections.
