Fuciderm gel 15g is a white translucent gel containing fusidic acid 0.5 % w/w and betamethasone 0.1 % w/w (as the valerate ester) with methyl parahydroxybenzoate and propyl parahydroxybenzoate as preservatives.
Fuciderm gel is used for the topical treatment of certain skin diseases such as wet eczema (acute moist dermatitis) which can occur in isolated patches on the body or in skin folds. Wet eczema is often made worse by the dog scratching or licking the affected area because of itching or pain. The skin problem may be associated with flea allergy and your veterinary surgeon may treat your dog for fleas at the same time. Fuciderm gel contains a well known antibiotic which helps kill the bacteria and a corticosteroid anti-inflammatory which will help relieve the itching and inflammation.
Isaderm Dosage and administration
If necessary clean the infected area of any pus or other material before applying Fuciderm. Use cotton wool dampened with water. Dry before applying the gel. Squeeze a little of the gel onto the affected area of the skin and spread it gently twice daily. If you forget to use the gel at any time use it as soon as you remember. Then go on as before. Complete the normal course as prescribed by your veterinary surgeon which is usually for 5 to a maximum of 7 days. Advice on correct administration of Fuciderm: Follow your veterinary surgeon's instructions about when and how to use the gel. Read the label carefully. Use the gel as your veterinary surgeon has told you. Avoid getting the Fuciderm into your own or your dog's eyes since it may cause stinging. If it gets into eyes bathe with water. Wash your hands well after applying Fuciderm. After a few days of using the gel the dog's skin condition should start to improve. However if the problem gets worse or doesn't improve or if there are any other unexpected problems consult your veterinary surgeon.
