Daktarin Gold is used to treat skin infections which may appear on the feet (Athlete's Foot), in the groin area (Dhobie itch/tinea cruris) or between skin folds (sweat Rash infected with a yeast infection 'thrush').
The cream rapidly relieves the itching which these fungal infections cause. It also provides long lasting protection from Athlete's Foot, as it will continue to work even after you have stopped using it. The cream contains the active substance, ketoconazole, which works by destroying the fungi and yeasts that cause the infection.
How to use Daktarin Gold
For use in adults, for topical administration.
For tinea cruris, candidal intertrigo and tinea pedis
Apply to the affected and immediate surrounding areas once or twice daily. The usual duration of treatment is 2 - 4 weeks for tinea cruris, 2 – 4 weeks for candidal intertrigo and 4 – 6 weeks for tinea pedis.
Treatment should be continued, until a few days after disappearance of all symptoms. The diagnosis should be reconsidered if no clinical improvement is noted after 4 weeks of treatment.
