Daktarin Aktiv Cream – You should treat athlete’s foot as soon as you notice the first signs of infection. The skin often becomes inflamed and itchy with areas of ‘dead skin’, moistness or blistering and cracking or peeling. It is important to treat the infected area quickly and thoroughly. Daktarin Aktiv Cream is suitable for athlete’s foot which is often accompanied by sore, cracked skin. It has an Aktiv, anti-fungal/anti-bacterial agent that fights the infection. There are three main types of fungi that can cause athlete’s foot and it is unlikely that you will know which one is responsible in your case. Therefore, you need a treatment that is effective against all three types of fungi. Miconazole nitrate, the active ingredient found in Daktarin Aktiv Cream has been clinically proven to be effective against all three of these fungi.
