Systemic absorption of fusidic acid is almost non-existent and is therefore anticipated to be safe to use during pregnancy.
A large pool of data where hydrocortisone has been used in pregnant woman has shown no ill effects on the unborn child. Therefore, it is generally safe to use Fucidin H Cream during pregnancy. However, based upon the knowledge we have of other corticosteroids use during pregnancy (possible systemic absorption), caution should be taken when using the cream on a pregnant female.
When applied to a small area of the breastfeeding mother’s skin, the systemic absorption is limited and is not known to cause any harm to a breastfed child. Therefore, Fucidin H Cream is safe to use during breastfeeding. Take care not to apply the cream to the breasts as to avoid the risk of accidental ingestion by the child.
