INTRODUCTION

FLUTIBACT OINTMENT is a combination of Fluticasone and Mupirocin which belongs to the group of medicines called Corticosteroids and Antibiotics respectively. It is used to treat and manage steroid-responsive inflammatory disorders of the skin where secondary bacterial infections are present, suspected, or likely to occur.

These include atopic dermatitis, nummular dermatitis (discoid eczemas), irritant or allergic contact dermatitis, seborrhoeic dermatitis, prurigo nodularis, psoriasis (excluding widespread plaque psoriasis), lichen simplex chronicus (neurodermatitis) and lichen planus, discoid lupus erythematosus, insect bite reactions, and miliaria (prickly heat).

Dermatitis is a common skin irritation which has many causes and forms and usually involves itchy, dry skin or a rash, blistering, oozing, crust or flake off. Psoriasis is a long-term skin disease that causes a rash with itchy, scaly patches, most commonly on the knees, elbows, trunk, and scalp which can be painful, interfere with sleep and make it hard for you to focus.

During course of the treatment your doctor might regularly examine your skin to avoid any untoward side effects.

HOW FLUTIBACT OINTMENT WORKS

FLUTIBACT OINTMENT relieves skin infection and inflammation where fluticasone exerts a direct local effect of blood vessel constriction and anti-inflammatory action by decreasing inflammatory cells like eosinophils, monocytes, mast cells, macrophages, and dendritic cells, along with the number of cytokines they produce, and decreasing mucus gland secretions. Mupirocin mediates its antibacterial activity by blocking the bacterial protein synthesis and formation of bacterial proteins essential for survival.
