What is Oral Thrush?

Oral thrush is a yeast infection in the mouth and throat caused by Candida. Oral thrush often occurs in babies and adults who wear dentures.

Antibiotics, asthma inhalers, or chemotherapy can also increase the risk of getting oral thrush. 

Some things you can do to prevent the infection include: 

  • Rinsing your mouth after taking medicine or eating
  • Visiting your dentist for regular check-ups
  • Brushing your teeth twice a day

Oral thrush is typically treated with antifungal medicine, such as Daktarin Oral Gel, which is available in smaller doses over-the-counter or in larger doses on prescription.

What is Daktarin Oral Gel 80g?

Darkatrin Oral Gel is an effective antifungal medicine to treat oral thrush. It contains the active ingredients Miconazole, which kills fungi and yeast by causing holes to appear in their cell membranes. This destroys the fungal cells and helps clear up the infection.

Daktarin Oral Gel 80g is the larger dose version of Daktarin Oral Gel, which is available on prescription in the UK from licensed pharmacies.

How long does Daktarin Oral Gel take to work?

The effects of the oral gel should be noticeable within 24 hours of taking it. It can take up to one week after the symptoms appear for them to disappear completely. There is a risk of developing oral thrush again if you stop using daktarin before the course of your treatment is complete.

How to use Daktarin Oral Gel

  • Dispense one dose (2.5ml) from the tube
  • Apply directly to the infected area with a clean finger 
  • Keep the gel in the mouth for as long as possible before swallowing.

Apply to the affected area four times a day after meals, spacing doses evenly throughout the day.

You should continue using Daktarin Oral Gel for 7 days after thrush symptoms have disappeared.

If you wear dentures, remove them before applying the gel.

If you miss a dose, wait until your next dose is due to apply and continue treatment as advised by your pharmacist.

Daktarin Oral Gel should always be taken exactly as you’ve been advised by your pharmacist. Always read the patient information leaflet thoroughly before taking any medication.

Daktarin Oral Gel FAQs

Both Daktarin Oral Gel and Daktarin Cream are used to treat fungal infections and contain miconazole. However, Daktarin Cream is used to treat fungal skin infections, such as ringworm, athlete’s foot and groin infections, whereas the miconazole oral gel (Daktarin Oral Gel) targets fungal mouth infections

Daktarin Oral Gel should not be used to treat mouth ulcers, and It is only intended to treat fungal infections. If you are unsure about your symptoms, speak to one of our pharmacists, who can advise on the best medication for your symptoms.

It is great to have somewhere local that does blood testing. The staff are lovely, helpful and experienced. They fit me in last minute. There is never a wait and the results back within a day or two.
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.
