Fucicort 0.1%+2% Cream 15 gm is more suited for inflammatory skin conditions with concurrent bacterial infection affecting it. It works by acting on the skin via two basic mechanisms.

It also inhibits Phospholipase A2 which speeds up the process of prostaglandin formation, a key mediator in inflammatory reactions.
