My baby has had eczema and the doctor prescribed Hydrocortisone cream 0.5%. Some of the areas on her face got rubbed raw and inflamed, so for those areas he prescribed Fucidin H which is Fucidic acid an antibiotic and Hydrocortisone combined. He said I could use it on broken skin and longer than a week, which contradicted the information that came with the drugs. I used it for 8 weeks and then gave up since it made no difference. Now that some of the broken skin is healing I notice reddened patches, thin spidery veins, and very sensitive skin in the areas that got the Fucidin H, just like the warnings said. Why was I told to use it anyway, and will the redness and spidery veins go away eventually?
