Fucibet Cream Reviews: What Do Users Really Think?
Fucibet cream is proven for its excellent qualities in treating skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, relieving symptoms and battling against the causes of infection. But how exactly does Fucibet work? And how does it compare to similar products?
What Is Fucibet Cream?
Fucibet cream is a combination medicine for various types of skin conditions. It contains two active ingredients – fusidic acid, a topical antibiotic which stops bacteria from growing, and betamethasone, a corticosteroid (also known as a steroid) that reduces inflammation. There is 20 mg of fusidic acid and 1 mg of betamethasone in each 1 g of Fucibet.
What Is Fucibet Used For?
Fucibet cream offers dual-action treatment for skin conditions caused by bacteria, such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and germ infections. The fusidic acid in Fucibet works by preventing bacteria from reproducing. In this way, it allows the body to kill existing bacteria, taking antimicrobial action against the microorganisms that cause infection.
As it also contains betamethasone, it is effective in suppressing inflammation, reducing visible symptoms of skin conditions. It does this by stopping skin cells from releasing chemicals that cause inflammation, which can reduce swelling, itching and redness.
Fucibet Before and After
You can typically see a reduction in your symptoms within a week of starting to take Fucibet. The treatment will get to work clearing your infection, and you should notice your rash diminishing and itchiness subsiding. Dry skin should begin to improve as the skin goes through the healing process, and redness should reduce.
Treatment time is usually two weeks. It is not recommended that you use Fucibet cream for more than two weeks, as this may increase the risk of bacteria becoming resistant to the treatment.

So how effective is Fucibet cream? And what are its benefits and common side effects? To obtain a consensus, we have taken a look at the observations of online reviewers:
How Effective Is Fucibet Cream?
Some users online have reported that Fucibet cream was able to significantly reduce their skin irritation in a matter of hours. For others, the treatment took days, rather than hours, to be effective. Users have observed that after trying other types of treatment for their skin condition, Fucibet turned out to be the most effective medication. Other reviewers advised using Fucibet as early as possible at the start of an outbreak.
Fucibet Cream Benefits
The speed and efficiency with which Fucibet works are two of the most commonly reported benefits by reviewers online. Not only does Fucibet provide relief quickly, but users have noted their satisfaction that their condition did not recur for some time after their skin healed. Not only is Fucibet commonly cited in reviews as being effective in clearing up red and itchy skin, but it also clears up blisters and rashes. It was also noted that unlike some other topical medications for skin conditions, Fucibet does not cause any discomfort or pain when it is applied.

Fucidin vs Fucibet
Like Fucibet, Fucidin is a treatment for skin conditions caused by bacteria. It works by killing the bacteria that cause infection, and is suitable for the treatment of infected dermatitis (skin rashes or irritation caused by genetics).
One of the main differences between Fucidin and Fucibet lies in their active ingredients. While Fucibet is a topical combination of fusidic acid and betamethasone, Fucidin cream contains only fusidic acid. The strength of the fusidic acid in the two treatments is the same – there is 20 mg of fusidic acid in both Fucidin and Fucibet.
As their active ingredients differ to a degree, some of the skin conditions that Fucidin and Fucibet treat are also different. Unlike Fucibet, Fucidin is a treatment for impetigo (a skin condition characterised by crusty, swollen and weepy skin), whereas Fucibet treats eczema and psoriasis.
Fucidin is not to be confused with its counterpart Fucidin H cream; a dual-action medication that’s more similar to Fucibet as it is also used to treat eczema and psoriasis.
Fucibet cream comes in 30 g and 60 g tubes. The price of a 30 g tube of Fucibet cream in the UK is around £12.50. The price of a 60 g tube of Fucibet in the UK is around £24. When taking into account the fast-acting and effective qualities of Fucibet cream, users reviewing the medication online have expressed their view that the price of Fucibet is satisfactory.
You can’t buy Fucibet cream over the counter in the UK, but once your suitability for the medication has been assessed and confirmed, you can purchase it with a prescription. After a doctor has confirmed your suitability and issued a prescription, you can buy Fucibet cream from online pharmacies, as well as those on the high street and in supermarkets.
