How do you prevent athlete’s foot?
Despite the name, anyone can get athlete’s foot - not just athletes.
To prevent yourself from getting athlete’s foot, wear protective footwear like shower shoes or flip-flops when walking around a pool, gym, public shower, or locker areas as the fungus which causes athlete’s foot may be on the floor.
It’s important to keep your feet dry as the fungus is attracted to damp, warm areas like sweaty shoes - you may wish to alternate shoes each day to give them time to air and dry properly.
How can you treat athlete’s foot?
Athlete’s foot can be easily treated with antifungal creams, powders or sprays.
It isn’t a pleasant infection, as it can make your feet feel itchy, red, and sore while also causing an unpleasant cheesy smell that can cause embarrassment when it’s time to take off your shoes.
One of the most popular ways to treat athlete’s foot is to use antifungal creams, which contain ingredients like clotrimazole, miconazole and bifonazole, which can all help to combat foot fungus and treat your infection at its source.
How do you treat oral thrush?
You can treat oral thrush with Daktarin, a sugar-free oral gel that contains the antifungal ingredient miconazole.
As oral thrush is a fungal infection, miconazole will destroy the fungi so your infection can clear up as quickly as possible.
Has your baby or child got oral thrush? No problem, Daktarin can be used on babies from 4 months and older.
When do you treat oral thrush in babies?
If your baby has oral thrush, usually no treatment is needed and the infection will clear on its own after a few days.
If their thrush isn’t clearing, a doctor or pharmacist may recommend an antifungal treatment like Daktarin which contains the active ingredient miconazole to clear the infection.
This should be applied to the affected areas in your baby’s mouth after they’ve been fed.
