Admit it, we are all into the alcohol habit. Filipinos automatically apply alcohol to their kid’s wounds when they get hurt. Aside from being painful, apparently alcohol is not that effective in preventing infection. This was revealed in a presscon event held recently by Fucidin at the Ascott Hotel in BGC. Host Kris Aquino stressed the point that we should do away with our alcohol obsession and dependence when it comes to preventing infection.
Children are exposed to different types of wounds and scrapes because of their daily activities. Moms need to make sure the wound doesn’t get infected. Infection occurs when bacteria enters the wound through a break on one’s skin. Bacteria may spread and lead to more serious diseases.
Usually, the immediate response is to wash a wound well with soap and water then add alcohol. Cleaning may not be enough, it is also essential to apply a topical antibiotic like Fucidin® at the first sign of wound infection. Kris Aquino is all praises for Fucidin’s effectiveness, even long before she became the brand’s celebrity endorser.
Fusidic acid/sodium fusidate Fucidin® is a powerful antibiotic that is clinically proven against wound infection. It is fast-acting, working on the infection 2 minutes upon application and deep-penetrating, reaching the skin’s deepest layer 30 minutes after application. It also helps prevent bacteria from spreading.
Fucidin® comes in two variants. Fucidin® cream is ideal for exposed parts of the body like the face and hands, while Fucidin® ointment is ideal for dry, scaly or cracked lesions. Fucidin® is available in leading drugstores nationwide.
Fucidin® is from LEO Pharma, a Danish pharmaceutical company with a mission to help people achieve healthy skin. LEO Pharma is the pioneer in the development of fusidic acid. It has a wide range of products that are marketed in over 100 countries. LEO Pharma has more than 100 years of trusted heritage worldwide.
