Product Description

How does Daktarin work?

Daktarin works by making holes in the cell membranes of the fungi which is crucial to the survival of candida fungi. The inner substances of the cell eventually leak out, causing the fungi to die. Once the production of the fungi is stopped, the infection will eventually clear.

Is Daktarin effective?

The active ingredient in Daktarin oral gel ensures that the medication effectively kills the fungi cells and fight the infection. To ensure that the infection has been completely treated and cleared and to prevent the infection returning, you should continue to use this medication for 7 days after the symptoms have cleared.


How to use Daktarin oral gel:

This gel is intended to be used for oral use only, and you should keep it in your mouth for as long as possible without swallowing it straight away. The gel is intended to be applied directly to the affected area with a clean finger, so it is crucial to wash your hands before and after application. This gel should be applied after meals around four times a day, but you should always speak to your doctor or GP before using the medication.


This medication should be applied after meals four times a day. The recommended dosage of this medication for adults is 2.5 ml of the medication, but the recommended dosage for infants between the age of 4 months and 2 years old is 1.25ml. These dosages do depend on the development of the child though, and you should always speak to your doctor before using the medication to see if there are any potential issues that could affect you when using the medication.
