Daktarin Oral Gel 40g 20mg/g is for treating fungal and associated bacteria infections of the mouth or throat. Daktarin Oral Gel contains the active ingredient Miconazole which is an antifungal medicine used for treating fungi and yeast infections by interfering with their cell membranes. It works by stopping fungi production and causing it to disappear. For extra healing benefits, Daktarin Oral Gel should be held in your mouth for as long as possible before swallowing. Daktarin gel has a pleasant taste that instantly soothes irritation and reduces the burning sensation in your mouth and gums, while preventing further outbreaks or mouth infections.
Caution when using Daktarin Oral Gel:
Daktarin oral gel is sticky. You should be careful to ensure that the gel doesn’t obstruct the throat, as this may cause choking, particularly in children. The gel should not be put at the back of the throat, and the prescribed dose may be divided into smaller portions.
If you have false teeth (dentures) and are treating oral thrush you should brush the gel onto your dentures after you take them out at night to kill any fungus that may be on the dentures.
Treatment with this medicine should be continued for two days after the symptoms have cleared up to ensure the infection is fully treated and prevent it from coming back.
Take at regular intervals.
Complete the prescribed course unless otherwise directed.
