Fusidic acid is also sometimes known as sodium fusidate. It’s used to treat bacterial infections, such as skin infections including cellulitis and impetigo, and eye infections including conjunctivitis. Fusidic acid is an antibiotic. It works by stopping bacteria from growing.

Uses and Dosage

If you’re applying this medication onto your skin, follow the instructions to clean and dry the affected area. Apply a small amount of the medication, typically 3 to 4 times daily or as instructed by your doctor. A thin layer is sufficient, and if advised by your doctor, cover with a bandage.

Don’t exceed the recommended dosage or frequency, or extend the duration of use beyond what’s directed. Doing so won’t accelerate healing but might heighten the risk of side effects.

Unless otherwise advised by your doctor, avoid applying this medication in or near your eyes.

Consistently use this medication to maximize its effectiveness. Stick to the prescribed duration without discontinuing prematurely, as stopping too soon could allow bacteria to persist, potentially causing the infection to recur.

Inform your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
