What is Daktacort cream used for?

Daktacort cream is an antifungal medication used to treat inflamed skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis, which are often caused by fungal or bacterial infections. It’s also used for treating thrush-related irritation in areas like underarms, beneath the breasts, or the groin, where skin chafing can occur.

Daktacort cream is not a recommended treatment for ringworm, as the steroids in the cream can make the condition worse. As an alternative, Lamisil cream is more suitable for treating ringworm.

How does Daktacort cream work?

Daktacort cream contains miconazole nitrate and hydrocortisone. Miconazole destroys fungi and yeast by causing holes in cell membranes, which stops the infection from spreading. Hydrocortisone is a mild steroid that reduces inflammation, redness, swelling, and itching from the infection.

How long does Daktacort cream take to work?

Daktacort cream usually starts to relieve symptoms within 7 days of treatment and it’s recommended not to use the cream for more days than this. If there’s no visible improvement after 7 days of using Daktacort cream, speak to one of our pharmacists or your doctor for further advice.

Who can take Daktacort cream?

Daktacort cream is suitable for adults and children aged 10 or over to treat fungal skin infections with inflammation. It’s not recommended to use on the face or for viral infections.

Let one of our pharmacists know during your consultation if you:

  • Have had an allergic reaction to any other creams or medicines
  • Have an eye or skin infection
  • Are pregnant, trying to get pregnant or breastfeeding

Read the patient information leaflet if you’re unsure whether it’s suitable for you to use Daktacort cream.

After refusal of doctors appointment same old same old ring back etc. I was invited at 5.25 to see doctor I drove over immediately. Everything fully explained and checked over I was leaving by 6pm with penicillin for strep throat. Had I followed my doctors receptionist I would probably have suffered longer and increased the chances of a worse infection.I Great efficient service.
