Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum

Avoid applying Fucidin to eyes is strictly contraindicated.

You can use antiinflammatoris like Fulbiprofen ( FLUR ) or Ketaprofen (Ketorlac
) for non specific inflammations in the eye.
If there is pus formation and a bacterial etiology is established the applying antibacterial preparation is advised.
Note : its better to use the drugs to the eyes which are in liquid form ( drops).

Thanks for visiting

Take care, Bye
