For fast acting and effective relief from fungal skin infections, Daktarin Cream Miconazole Nitrate 2% is a reliable treatment. Using anti-fungal agents, the cream fights against conditions such as ringworm, athlete’s foot, nappy rash etc., allowing you to go about your day in peace.
Daktarin cream is an effective treatment for the three main types of fungi. The cream contains an active ingredient known as miconazole nitrate, which works to kill any fungi present, reducing the symptoms of common skin conditions. It does this by targeting their cell membranes, stopping them from functioning properly, and dying.
It also contains a minor antibacterial agent that can kill certain harmful bacteria associated with such fungal infections. This helps to stop the bacteria from spreading the infection to other parts of the body, allowing the fungi to slowly die off.
If you suffer from any bacterial or fungal related skin conditions, including symptoms such as cracking, peeling, blistering or inflammation, then Daktarin Cream Miconazole Nitrate 2% might be the ideal treatment for you.
Make sure to wash and dry affected areas on a regular basis, and continue treatment for up to seven days after symptoms have disappeared in order to stop the infection from reoccurring.
Always thoroughly wash and dry affected areas of your skin and nails before using any topical treatment.
If you have a skin infection: apply the cream directly to affected areas twice a day, gently rubbing it into the area as well as the surrounding skin.
If you have a nail infection: apply the cream to affected nails either once or twice a day, gently rubbing it into the nail and surrounding area.
Unless the infection is present on your hands, always thoroughly wash your hands after using Daktarin cream. This will help to avoid the spread of infection.
Depending on the severity of your infection it will take anywhere from two to six weeks for the cream to fully clear up the infection. Nail infections usually take longer than skin infections.
Continue using Daktarin cream for at least 7 days after all symptoms have disappeared. This is important as it will ensure that the infection cannot return.
If your symptoms worsen or your infection spreads, always consult with your doctor.
