Hey folks,

I am wondering if anyone here knows about Fucidin 2% Cream (not Fucidin H) and its mechanisms of action/ how it works?

I was prescribed it once when I had an impetigo infection on my chin. It seemed to melt away the lesion, obviously due to some sort of anti-bacterial (anti-staph infection) properties, but it also caused the skin to gently exfoliate so that new skin would grow, it seemed.

I once read that it works on acne so I applied it as a spot treatment and it works better than anything else. It even works better than tea tree oil because it causes no irritation to me-- it's very gentle.

My questions are:

1) Does this make sense? I asked a pharmacist and she just told me that it's for staph infections and wouldn't work on acne.

2) Is it okay to use it long-term as a spot treatment? (Giving my skin a break from it every other week as I do with most spot treatments)?

Thanks!!!
