FUCIDIN H CREAM is a combination of Fusidic acid and Hydrocortisone which belongs to the group of medicines called Antibiotics and Corticosteroids respectively. It is used to treat conditions where the skin is inflamed (eczema or dermatitis) and infected or to prevent infection by bacteria.

Eczema or dermatitis is a term for several different types of skin swelling that cause dry, itchy skin and rashes on the face, elbows, behind the knees, and on the hands and feet. Scratching the skin can cause it to swell and itch even more, and may turn red.
