What is athlete’s foot?
Athlete’s foot is a fungal skin infection which normally begins between your toes. It’s caused by fungi which like moist and warm places, so if you suffer from sweaty feet and wear shoes that are too tight, you could be creating the perfect environment for athlete’s foot to thrive.
How will Daktarin Spray treat athlete’s foot?
Daktarin Spray is a treatment spray for athlete’s foot which contains the active ingredient miconazole nitrate. This fights off the fungi and bacteria which cause athlete’s foot while providing relief and protection from further infection.
