Fusidic acid and beclomethasone dipropionate cream is a combination medication used to treat skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis. Fusidic acid is an antibiotic that works by killing bacteria, while beclomethasone dipropionate is a steroid that helps to reduce inflammation and itching.
This cream is usually applied to the affected area of skin two to three times per day, as directed by a healthcare professional. It is important to use the cream for the full course of treatment, even if symptoms improve, to prevent the infection from returning.
Possible side effects of fusidic acid and beclomethasone dipropionate cream may include skin irritation, burning, stinging, redness, itching, or dryness at the application site. If any of these side effects become severe or persistent, or if you experience any other unusual symptoms, you should contact your healthcare provider. Additionally, prolonged use of the medication may increase the risk of developing secondary infections or skin thinning, so it is important to follow your healthcare provider's instructions closely.
