About Eczmate-F Cream

Eczmate-F Cream is used to treat bacterial skin infections, such as eczema and dermatitis, nasal polyps (painless growth on the lining of the nose or sinuses), dermatoses (lesions or eruptions of the skin) and impetigo (red sores on the face). Bacterial infection occurs when harmful bacteria grow in the body and cause disease. It can infect any part of the body and multiply very quickly.

Eczmate-F Cream is composed of two medicines: Mometasone (corticosteroid) and Fusidic acid (antibiotic). Mometasone belongs to the class of corticosteroids. Corticosteroids have anti-inflammatory, immunosuppressive and antiproliferative (inhibit cell growth) properties. It blocks the production of prostaglandins (chemical messengers) that make the affected area red, swollen and itchy. On the other hand, Fusidic acid is an antibiotic and prevents the synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. It is used to treat infections like dermatitis (inflammation of the skin), spots, cuts, grazes, impetigo (weeping, crusty and swollen patches of skin) and folliculitis (inflammation of one or more hair follicles).

Your doctor will advise the appropriate dose that suits your infection. Eczmate-F Cream has common side effects like itching, dryness, redness and burning sensation at the application site. These side effects usually do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if you face any other symptoms or the side effects persist longer, please consult your doctor.

Let your doctor know if you have any allergic reactions to Eczmate-F Cream or other medications. Eczmate-F Cream is not recommended for diaper rash. Mometasone may increase the risk of infection in patients exposed to viral illnesses like chickenpox or measles. Do not use Eczmate-F Cream on sensitive areas like nostrils, ears, lips or genitals if the doctor did not advise you. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should consult the doctor before starting Eczmate-F Cream.
