Daktarin Original Powder is an effective and fast anti-fungal treatment for skin infections such as nappy rash, and it can be used to treat the infected area quickly and thoroughly. It is good for treating symptoms such as cracked, dry and sore skin. It has the anti-fungal/anti-bacterial agent miconazole that fights against the infection.

Pharmacist Tip

Daktarin Powder is an antifungal powder that can be used on its own or with other antifungal treatments for persistent infections. It will help in absorbing moisture, so is perfect for footwear.

Daktarin Original Powder contains miconazole which is an anti-fungal medicine used to treat infections caused by fungi and yeasts. Miconazole interferes with the cell membranes of fungi and yeast and stops fungi from producing ergosterol, a substance which is an essential component of fungi.

Daktarin Original Powder is great for nappy rash amongst many other fungal infections. The powder can be used on a regular basis for those who need a trusted, fast and effective treatment.

A medicated talc powder that is works especially well for those times when a drying effect is needed. Ideal for the treatment of shoes and socks.

Adults, including the elderly and children of all ages:

Apply twice daily for up to 10 days after all signs of infection have disappeared.

Dust inside articles of clothing in contact with the affected area.

Sprinkle the powder onto the infected area and surrounding skin. It may be used on broken skin and is particularly useful where a drying effect is required. The powder can also be dusted inside socks, shoes and clothing which are in contact with the infected area.

Daktarin Powder Original
I use this as a preventative measure. I dust my socks with it so when I use the communal gym showers I don't have to worry about coming out with more than I bargained for. I haven't caught anything yet so either I've been lucky or it's working.
