Daktacort hydrocortisone cream is used to treat fungal infections, such as athlete’s foot. It works by directly targeting infected areas, providing safe and effective relief from inflammation and itching.
Daktacort hydrocortisone cream is generally used as a treatment for athlete’s foot (tinea pedis) which has become inflamed. Infection and subsequent inflammation can occur between folds of skin on the body such as the buttocks, thighs, and toes. These folds create the perfect warm and moist conditions for Candida fungi to grow, the cause of sweat rash.
There are two active ingredients contained in Daktacort hydrocortisone cream, they are:
Miconazole targets the infection directly, killing any fungi, yeasts, and even some harmful bacteria. It does this by creating holes in the membranes of the fungal cells, causing the constituents of the fungal cell to be exposed, killing the fungi and fighting the infection.
Hydrocortisone works to decrease any redness and itching associated with the infection. It does this by preventing skin cells from producing prostaglandins and any other inflammation creating chemicals. When the skin is irritated or infected it releases these chemicals, creating the redness and itchiness associated with inflammation.
For this reason, Daktacort hydrocortisone cream should only be used for fungal infections with accompanying inflammation. If you have a fungal infection without inflammation, then a medication that doesn't contain hydrocortisone could be more appropriate.
Once any inflammation has been fully treated, a different, hydrocortisone-free, antifungal medication should be used.
Always carefully wash and dry any affected areas thoroughly before using Daktacort HC cream. Apply a thin and even layer of cream directly to the affected area, gently rubbing the cream in. For best results, Daktacort HC cream should be used twice a day.
After the cream has been applied, make sure to wash your hands in order to prevent the infection from spreading.
Use Daktacort HC cream for up to seven days. If the infection persists, you should continue treatment with steroid-free Daktarin cream or powder.
