This is a topical treatment that combats fungal and yeast infections on the skin. The active ingredient is an antifungal medicine known as 'miconazole' which works by forcing holes in the cell membranes of fungi and yeast.
This medication will take between two and six weeks to work. If you notice no visible change after this time period, you should consult with a doctor as a more invasive treatment plan may be needed.
The most common side effect of this medication is skin irritation. This is normal and usually subsides after a few applications. However, if you experience a severe skin reaction this could indicate an allergy or dermatitis. In this instance, you should stop using the cream and seek immediate medical attention.
It is not advised to use this medication while pregnant. This is because the risk to the child may be greater than the benefit to the mother. If you are pregnant, you should consult with a doctor before beginning any new treatment.
To effectively apply this cream, follow the instructions below:
No. It is an antifungal. It is designed to combat infections by damaging the cell walls of fungi and yeasts. In comparison, antibiotics only fight bacterial infections. The use of antibiotics can in fact make you more susceptible to fungal infections.
Daktacort is different to Daktarin. Though they both contain the active ingredient 'miconazole', Daktacort also contains 'hydrocortisone', a mild, topical steroid. The addition of this ingredient allows Daktacort to also treat more severe skin irritation and swelling.
