What is Daktarin Gold?

Daktarin Gold is a treatment for athlete’s foot which can also be used to treat inflamed sweat rash and jock itch. It tackles the cause of infection and helps to provide long-lasting protection from returning fungi or yeast which cause infections.


What is athlete’s foot?

Athlete’s foot is a fungal skin infection which often starts between your toes before spreading onto your foot. It causes itchy, red, and flaky skin which can make you feel uncomfortable and irritated, and will often be accompanied by an unpleasant ‘cheesy’ smell.


How does Daktarin Gold treat athlete’s foot and other skin infections?

Daktarin Gold contains the active ingredient ketoconazole, which works to destroy the fungi and yeast which cause skin infections such as athlete’s foot. By destroying these fungi, Daktarin Gold helps to treat the infection while protecting against further infections.


Which Daktarin product should I use?

If you have a fungal infection then it can be confusing to choose a product that will help you get back to normal. At the top of this page, we've included a comparison table of every Daktarin product, which shows you which conditions each product can treat. Remember, although this table is a good guideline, you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist before using Daktarin products if you're unsure what you're suffering from and what you should use for it.


How to use Daktarin Gold

Before using Daktarin Gold, wash the infected area and dry it well with your towel or flannel. Depending on which ailment you want to treat, you should apply Daktarin Gold once or twice every day. For more exact information about how often to apply Daktarin Gold, please read the patient information leaflet included carefully. After applying Daktarin Gold, make sure to wash your hands to prevent spreading infection.
