Mommies are meticulous when it comes to cleanliness and dealing even in tiny wounds. In a recent health talk I attended, doctors and moms shared their experiences dealing even with simple wounds to the early signs of infections.

Fucidin: Fight Against Wound Infection

Kris Aquino, event's host and also the brand ambassador for Fucidin shared how Fucidin has become part of their wound care kit. Kris is well known as a celebrity mother who cares for her sons’ health and well being.

Kris Aquino for Fucidin

“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!”
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 parents 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 also essential to apply a topical antibiotic like Fucidin® at the first sign of wound infection.

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
  • 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. Join the fight against wound infection! Fucidin® is available in leading drugstores nationwide.

Are you Vitamin D deficient? Just few weeks ago, I attended an event that talks about Vitamin D deficiency, then I realized it's not something we usually monitor. We go to the clinic for the regular physical examination which includes CBC, Blood Chemistry, Cholesterol check up, X-ray but have you ever had a check-up of your Vitamin D level?


Silent epidemic spreads: 3 out of 5 Filipinos suffer from Vit-D deficiency. Are you one of them? An expert in the field of occupational medicine has revealed that an increasing number of office workers in Metro Manila are becoming vitamin D-deficient because of their lifestyle habits.


Cases of vitamin D deficiency in the country are increasing due to lifestyle that most of us have.
