Kris Aquino and Fucidin® in the Fight Against Wound Infection

Moms would agree that children are exposed to different types of wounds and scrapes because of their daily activities. Even in the most harmless-looking places, no matter how hard we try to protect them, they can still get hurt.

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. But cleaning may not be enough

It is essential to apply a topical antibiotic like Fucidin® at the first sign of wound infection. We all know Kris Aquino as one of the celebrity mother who cares for her sons’ health and wellbeing and Fucidin is part of her wound care kit..


“I have two boys and when they get a cut or a wound, I clean it with soap and water for 15 seconds. Then, I apply Fucidin® agad,” she says. “Fucidin® is part of our wound care kit!”

Kris Aquino goes full force against wound infection with Fucidin® in the recent event held at  Ascott Hotel BGC,Makati City.  Together with  Gitte Pugholm Abo, CEO and President of LEO Pharma,  Dr. Empress Villapando, a pediatrician affiliated with the Para├▒aque Doctor’s Hospital, Medical Center Taguig and The Medical City, Frances Sales, formerly a magazine editor of OK Magazine and Baby Magazine and Dra. Irene Gardiner of Leo Pharma, I was glad to be united with them as they talk about the efficacy of Fucidin during the event.



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. It is better to consult a doctor prior using the product.

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 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.


Fusidic acid/sodium fusidate is the generic name of Fucidin®.  Fucidin® is available in leading drugstores nationwide.
