Fusidic acid is a kind of antibiotic.
It is used to treat bacterial infections such as cellulitis and impetigo on the skin, as well as conjunctivitis in the eyes (red, itchy eyes).
Fusidic acid is only accessible with a doctor’s prescription. It is available as a cream, ointment, or eye drops. In certain creams, it might be mixed with a steroid.
It can also be administered as an injection, a liquid to drink, or as tablets, although these are typically reserved for hospital usage.
