Furacin is an antibacterial cream or solution that acts by destroying bacteria and preventing their growth at the site of
skin burns that have developed bacterial infections.
Furacin is prescribed in skin grafting when bacterial contamination may cause graft
rejection or donor site infection, especially in hospitals with a history of resistant bacteria.
Furacin is prescribed as a prophylactic agent, in order to prevent such infections from occurring.
Furacin is prescribed as an adjunctive therapy for second and third degree burns when resistance
to other agents is a real or potential problem.
