Daktarin Cream treats fungal and associated bacterial infection of the skin and nails. It may also be prescribed for treating athlete's foot, jock itch, nappy rash, and intertrigo. It contains the active ingredient Miconazole Nitrate.

Daktarin Cream provides treatment for fungal and associated bacterial infection of the skin and nails. It contains the active ingredient Miconazole Nitrate.

How it works

The active ingredient, Miconazole, kills fungi and yeasts by interfering with their cell membranes. It stops the fungi from growing and causes it to break down.

Each time you use Daktarin Cream:

Wash the infected skin and dry it well. As many skin conditions are infectious, you should keep a towel and a flannel for your own use so that you do not infect anyone else.

For skin infections:

  • Apply Daktarin Cream to the affected area twice daily, eg at night and in the morning.


For nail infections:

  • Apply once or twice daily to the affected area. Rub Daktarin Cream gently into the affected area and surrounding skin with clean fingers.


After applying the cream:

  • Unless the infected skin is on your hands, wash your hands carefully to avoid spreading the infection to other parts of the body or to other people. Similarly, clothing which comes into contact with the infected areas should be washed and changed frequently. Daktarin Cream is non-greasy and should not stain clothes.
  • Relief from the symptoms may occur quickly but it is important that you continue to use Daktarin Cream for up to 10 days after the symptoms have cleared to prevent them from coming back.
  • If you forget to use your cream, do not apply the missed dose, but apply the next dose as usual and continue your course of medicine.  

Caution before using Daktarin Cream:

  • Do not put Daktarin Cream into the eyes – it is for application to the skin and nails only.
  • Pregnancy and breast feeding: If you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or breast feeding, you should talk to your doctor who will decide if you can use Daktarin Cream.
  • Other medicines: If you are taking certain medicines that are used to slow down blood clotting, contact your doctor who may wish to check they are working correctly.
  • You should carefully read all product packaging and labels prior to use


Side Effects when using Daktarin Cream:

Daktarin Cream is usually well-tolerated. Rarely, irritation of the skin may occur. If the irritation is severe, stop using the cream and talk to your doctor. Very rarely, a severe allergic reaction may occur. If you develop swelling of the face, lips, tongue or throat, generalised itch and difficulty breathing, stop using the cream and contact your doctor immediately.

  • In very rare cases, rash, itching, redness, swelling or a burning feeling can occur. If these following each application, they may indicate an allergy to the medicine.
  • If your medicine affects you in any other way, you should tell your doctor or pharmacist.

3.7 stars

I have nearly finished my first tube and feel I still need to continue treatment. It may be that the nature of this infection means it takes a while tio clear and not the product to blame. I will try one more tube.
