Daktarin 2% Cream is a medicine which is used in the treatment of fungal and associated bacterial infections of the skin. Skin infections may appear on the hands, feet, outer ear, trunk or groin and include athlete’s foot, dhobie itch and intertrigo. Daktarin 2% Cream is also effective against infected nappy rash. The cream contains miconazole nitrate which works by destroying both the fungus that causes the infection and some of the associated bacteria which may also be present. It also has moisturising properties to help soothe cracked, red skin.


This medicine is suitable for most adults and children but a few people should not use it. This includes patients who may be taking oral anticoagulants, or medication used to treat diabetes or epilepsy. If you are in any doubt, read the information leaflet and talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

Age Dose
Adults and children of all ages

Apply the cream to the infected skin twice a day


  • Wash the infected area and dry it well. As many skin conditions are contagious, you should keep a towel and flannel for your own use and not share it so that you do not infect anyone else.
  • Apply the cream onto the infected area and surrounding skin.
  • Wash your hands carefully after applying the cream to avoid spreading the infection to other parts of the body or to other people. Similarly, clothing which comes into contact with the infected areas, such as socks, should be washed and changed frequently.
  • Continue treatment until the lesions have completely healed.
  • If symptoms persist talk to your doctor.
  • If the powder is used with the cream, a once daily application of both formulations is recommended.
  • The duration of therapy varies from 2 to 6 weeks depending on the localisation and severity of the lesion. Treatment should continue for at least one week after the disappearance of all signs and symptoms.


Warning - Do not exceed stated dose
