Indication and Clinical Use:
Fucibet® (fusidic acid and betamethasone valerate) is indicated for the topical treatment of eczematous dermatoses including atopic eczema, discoid eczema, stasis eczema and seborrhoeic eczema when secondary bacterial infection caused by Staphylococcus aureus is confirmed or suspected.
Fucibet® is suitable in cases where treatment with a potent corticosteroid is appropriate to manage the pruritus and inflammation associated with eczematous dermatoses, and is intended for use during flare-ups for short-term (up to 2 weeks) treatment against bacteria susceptible to fusidic acid.
To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria, Fucibet® should only be used to treat infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by bacteria.
Safety and efficacy have been established in patients ≥6 years old. Use with caution in pediatric patients.
