The cream contains the ingredients, Hydrocortisone acetate which is a mild 'topical steroid' that reduces inflammation, swelling, redness and itching of the skin. Miconazole nitrate is an antifungal which works by destroying both the fungus that causes the infection and some of the associated bacteria which may also be present.

Daktacort Hydrocortisone Cream gets to work quickly to relieve both aspects of infected, inflamed sweat rash, easing the inflammation, redness and itching. It can also be used to treat the fungal and bacterial infection caused by athlete's foot.

What is Daktacort Hydrocortisone Cream used for?

  • Athletes Foot (tinea pedis) is a fungal skin infection causing soreness, itching and flaking between the toes or on the soles or sides of the feet
  • Sweat rash (candida intertrigo, or 'thrush' of the skin folds) is a sore, itchy red rash found in areas where the skin rubs together e.g. below or between the breasts, underarms, tops of legs or the groin or other skin areas.

Daktacort hydrocortisone cream contains two active ingredients, miconazole and hydrocortisone.

  • Miconazole is a type of antifungal medicine. It kills fungi, yeasts and some bacteria (Staphylococcus and Streptococcus species).
  • Hydrocortisone is used to decrease inflammation in the skin. When applied to the skin it is absorbed into the skin cells. It reduces inflammation and thus relieves swelling, redness and itching.

How Daktacort works:

The combination of medicines in Daktacort hydrocortisone cream is used to treat a fungal infection of the skin on the feet called athlete's foot, and another fungal infection of the skin called Candidal intertrigo.

This occurs between folds of skin or areas of skin that rub together, e.g between the buttocks or thighs, or beneath the breasts, and is due to overgrowth of Candida species of fungi in these warm, moist areas. The miconazole in this medicine kills the fungi causing these infections, while the hydrocortisone reduces the associated inflammation and relieves redness, swelling and itching.

I bought Daktacort Hydrocortisone Cream at a price much cheaper than a prescription. It came quickly and although effective it was not as good as I thought - but that might well be down to it`s unsuitability for the reason I purchased it.
