A medicated cream for treating fungal infections on the feet or in the groin area. Daktarin is effective against Athlete's Foot and Dhobie Itch, using the active ingredient Ketoconazole.

Daktarin Intensiv Cream 2% is used for treating symptoms of Athlete’s Foot or Dhobie Itch. It contains the active ingredient Ketoconazole, which destroys the fungi that cause infection.

Triple action

  • Rapid itch relief
  • Treatment from redness and unpleasant smells
  • Protection from recurrent symptoms

How to apply Daktarin Intensiv Cream 2%:

  • Wash the infected area and dry it well (especially between the toes). As many skin conditions are contagious, you should keep a towel and flannel for your own use and not share it so that you do not infect anyone else.
  • Apply the cream thinly onto the infected area and surrounding skin.
  • Wash your hands carefully after applying the cream 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, such as socks, should be washed and changed frequently.

For Athletes Foot (infections between the toes)

  • Adults and children of all ages - Rub the cream gently between the toes and surrounding area twice a day (morning and night) for 1 week.
  • If athlete’s foot is more severe or extensive (e.g. affecting the sole or sides of the feet), continue to apply the cream to the affected areas for at least 2 to 3 days after signs of infection have cleared to prevent them coming back.
  • If symptoms have not improved within 7 days talk to your doctor.

For Dhobie Itch (Jock Itch)

  • Adults and children of all ages - Rub the cream into the affected area once or twice daily.
  • Continue treatment for at least 2 to 3 days after signs of infection have cleared. Treatment may be necessary for up to 6 weeks. You may feel relief from symptoms quickly but it is important that you continue to use the cream as described to prevent them from coming back.
  • If symptoms have not improved within 4 weeks talk to your doctor.

Caution before using Daktarin Intensiv Cream 2%:
