What is Daktarin Aktiv Cream?
Daktarin Aktiv Cream is a treatment for athlete’s foot which works by killing the fungi which cause infection. It helps to soothe the affected area while treating infection, providing effective relief when you need it most.
What causes athlete’s foot?
Athlete’s foot is a fungal skin infection which happens when the natural fungi on your skin find an environment where they can thrive. These fungi love a warm, moist environment, so if your feet are sweating and your shoes are too tight, you may find yourself at risk of athlete’s foot.
How will Daktarin Aktiv Cream help to treat my athlete’s foot?
Daktarin Aktiv Cream contains miconazole nitrate, an active ingredient which works to kill the fungi and bacteria which cause athlete’s foot. It also works to moisturise the affected skin, relieving cracked and reddened skin caused by athlete’s foot.
Which Daktarin product should I use?
