Fusidic acid and hydrocortisone is indicated for the treatment of mild to moderately severe atopic dermatitis where Staph aureus is suspected as a contributing factor.


Fusidic Acid BP 2 percent & Hydrocortisone Acetate BP 1 percent combo cream combines Fusidic Acid’s powerful topical antibacterial action with Hydrocortisone Acetate’s anti-inflammatory and anti-pruritic properties. Fusidic Acid is efficient against Staphylococci, Streptococci, Corynebacteria, Neisseria, and some Clostridia and Bacteroides when applied topically. Fusidic acid is an antibiotic that inhibits the synthesis of proteins in microorganisms. By stabilizing the ribosome-guanosine diphosphate elongation factor G-complex, it disrupts the translocation stage. This prevents aminoacyl t-RNA from binding to the ribosome and, as a result, prevents more amino acids from being transferred to the developing polypeptide. Hydrocortisone is the most common naturally occurring glucocorticosteroid in humans. Its major activity in pharmaceutical dosage is to diminish the skin’s sensitivity to damage (i.e. anti-in ammatory). It also possesses anti-mitotic and immunosuppressive properties.

Dosage & Administration

Adults: This Cream should be applied 3 times daily and gently massaged onto the affected areas for 2 weeks. A shorter course should be considered if symptoms improve.
