Flucreme NM Ointment 10 gm belongs to a group of medications called ‘anti-infectives’ used to treat and control bacterial and fungal skin infections. Flucreme NM Ointment 10 gm can effectively reduce symptoms associated with skin infections, such as swelling, itching and redness. Bacterial skin infection is a condition in which harmful bacteria grow on the skin and cause infection. They often appear as small, red bumps on the skin, gradually increasing in size.
