General Product Information

Fungal infections inject themselves into our lives by being both uncomfortable and inconvenient at once. If there's one thing that can ruin a perfectly good outdoor vacation, it's suddenly getting unwanted, persistent itches in one's extremities. If you wish to save yourself the hassle of suffering through a whole season of athlete's foot, make sure to pack Daktarin Cream.

Daktarin Cream does not only get rid of fungal infections, but also bacterial infections. Its antibacterial properties are responsible for it becoming a good defense against skin infections of all types. For one thing, they make it difficult for fungal conditions to return, once the antifungal trait of the drug has done away with them. Athlete's foot (also known as tinea pedis) is the least of your worries, if this product is within your reach; after Daktarin Cream has healed the sore, cracked skin, it also prevents athlete's foot from settling in the same place.

For best results, this product is applied regularly - once or twice daily, depending on the instructions for each specific condition. It usually takes 1-2 weeks for treatment to be completed, but after this, it is unlikely that the infection will return soon on the treated areas.

The active ingredient in Daktarin Cream is miconazole nitrate. It kills fungi by preventing the generation of a chemical called ergosterol. Fungal cell membranes need ergosterol. the absence of this substance causes holes to appear in the membrane, through which essential components of the fungal cell can leak out. Without a strong membrane to keep its cellular components together, a fungal infection quickly disperses in this method.

The following is a list of some common infections that may be treated by Daktarin Cream:

1. ringworm on the hands, scalp, or any other part of the body
2. cutaneous candidiasis - a skin infection caused by Candida albicans, a yeast-like fungus
3. fungal nappy rash, caused by diapers left unchanged for too long
4. groin infections such as dhobie itch (jock itch)
5. intertrigo (sweat rash)
6. stomatitis angularis
7. perianal infections
8. balanoposthitis

Daktarin Cream comes in a number of preparations, such as Daktarin Dual Action Cream, Daktarin Aktiv, Daktacort Hydrocortisone Cream, and Daktarin Gold. The difference is spelled out in the components that are added to the miconazole nitrate. Daktacort Hydrocortisone, as the name suggests, contains hydrocortisone acetate, a topical steroid that is effective in fighting sweat rash. Daktarin Gold, on the other hand, contains ketoconazole, potent against jock itch and sweat rash that is infected with candida. Research has shown that the effects of Daktarin Gold can last up to eight weeks.

This product may be popularly known as a cream, but it is also found in spray and powder form. Accidental contact with the eyes and the mouth should be avoided. However, this drug also has a version that is safe to be taken orally, called the Daktarin Oral Gel. This gel is a white, sugar-free ointment that is specially formulated to treat mouth and throat infections. If the infection happens to be inside or on the mouth, the gel must be allowed to stay in the mouth for as long as possible. Not to worry, however: this preparation comes with a pleasant orange flavor, so you don't have to put up with a bitter ointment taste.

As with the cream and powder versions, the gel is also taken regularly; adults should take 1-2 spoonfuls 4 times a day. Children over the age of 6 may take 1 spoonful, also 4 times a day. Children under the age of 2, however, should only take half a spoonful twice daily.

Pregnant and nursing mothers should consult their doctors before taking the gel. The cream or powder preparations may be generally safe for external use by pregnant or nursing mothers, but miconazole has been known to pass into breastmilk, so nursing mothers may wish to take extra care when applying this product, especially in the breast area.

It is highly unlikely that the topical and ingestible preparations of Daktarin will conflict with other medications. However, if you are taking warfarin to prevent blood clots, there is a very slight risk that using Daktarin Cream simultaneously will enhance the effects of warfarin. Your doctor may need to monitor your blood-clotting time or INR during and after the time you are regularly applying the cream.

    Had some weird skin someone took a shallow knife and made some curves. I tried with washing my feet few times a day,changing socks,changing shoes,airing my feet. Nothing. It was there on my both feet for almost a year and it started to hurt while walking,so my pharmacist suggested this cream and powder. After 48hrs things began to change and it all wanished in 10 days time. I was delighted! Would reccommend! But,after 3 months that thing appeard again,on the same place,same shape,and cream+powder helped again in 48hrs.

    I had very bad ears for 6 months due to trauma to ear I have tried many creams and lotions and antibiotics later found they mad it worse I have sticky liquid from ears after itching ears so much that the skin became sore and painful, I noticed the ear canal and outside ear and skin around the earlobe became very dark . The ENT specialist told me it's a fungal infection now so go gave me fungal tabs, I then asked dr to prescribe me cream to treat eczema and itching and this is when he prescribed Daktacort I have to say to all those who have my symptoms to use it as I used it first time straight away both ears and surrounding skin felt so better and I'm happy to continue to use it as it's the first day but to think what I have suffered with for 6months of stress and anger and the fear of never getting ears back to the way they were I'm thankful, I am surprised that my go didn't pick up by assessing my ears that it's turned into eczema And fungal infection, I did so much research on the website but thanks to this product I have to thank god.

    It worked for me .. we're ALL different. I also drink 1.5 litres of water a day and TRY not to eat chocolate/sugar etc .. and eat healthy in general .. WATER makes a massive difference and avoiding CREAMS as I used to think worked AND OILS on the face.

    This stuff is absolutely amazing after all the cream is that the doctor prescribed failed to work after all the prescription Queens fail to work somebody recommended this to me and I and it cleared up within a few days . Definitely go for the gold version not standard

    To the woman on antibiotics, your fungal infection will never clear up if you're on antibiotics. Antibiotic are known to CAUSE fungal infections and/or make them worse!

    Daktarin has worked perfectly for me and my son,in treating fungal infections.
  • 2013-08-04 21:07:16 EST
    I've been putting the cream on since January (7 months) and it still hasn't cleared up. At first the doctors gave me a different cream. When that didn't work, they gave me Daktarin. I've nearly finished the 2nd tube. I was finally seen by a dermatologist who wants me to have biopsies at a local hospital. They've postponed, cancelled, given me an earlier apt then just as I get near to the date, they phone and postpone yet again. Not happy. Between seeing the dermatologist and having the biopsies will be 15 weeks. And that's presuming it doesn't get changed again. That is totally unacceptable. I had swabs done at xmas and new year they arranged for me to have the cream. So basically my problem can't be fungal otherwise i'm sure the cream would have done what it's supposed to do. I'm even on long-term antibiotics and the problem is still there. Raally fed up with it

    From our Pharmacist: Daktarin does work as an anti-fungal treatment but it needs to be used as directed. In some cases treatment can take at least two weeks, as fungal infections can be notoriously difficult to treat. A newer product - LAMISIL - has been shown to work at a faster rate than Daktarin. This is a more expensive product, but does work much faster.

    It does not work. I have applied it exactly as indicated for 5 days in a row with no result. I went to a new Pharmacist and they recommended another product, as it is well know Daktarin does not work.
