Daktarin Intensiv (Ketoconazole) Cream - 15g

£4.99

Daktarin Intensiv Cream is a medicine which is used to treat fungal nail infection and skin infections which may appear on the feet (Athlete's Foot) or in the groin area (Dhobie Itch/tinea cruris). The cream rapidly relieves the itching which the fungal nail infection, or skin infection cause. It also provides long lasting protection from Athlete's Foot, as it will continue to work even after you have stopped using it. The cream contains the active substance, ketoconazole, which works by destroying the fungi that cause the infection. If you have Athlete's Foot, the skin between your toes will be red and itchy. Your skin may flake and crack and often the infection causes an unpleasant ‘cheesy' smell. It is encouraged by moist, warm conditions and can be recognised by redness, irritation and itchiness between the toes. Tinea cruris or Dhobie Itch is a fungal infection that occurs in the groin area and causes intense itching and inflammation (redness and soreness). In men, the skin of the scrotum is often affected. This medicine is for use in adults and children of all ages.

 

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. Beneath, we've created a simple table with each of the remedies Daktarin products can treat, and which will work on yours. 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 with and what you should use for it.

Returns Information

Tinea manuum is a fungal infection of the hands. Tinea is also called ringworm, and manuum refers to it being on the hands. 

Tinea pedis (athlete’s foot), corporis, cruris and manuum can all be successfully managed with over-the-counter (OTC) products.

Topical formulations include creams, sprays or powders, though cautions against the use of powders (particularly for tinea pedis), suggesting that these might cause irritation but could be of value at preventing re-infection. In most instances, treatment with a cream will be appropriate. 

There are two classes of topical anti-fungal agents: imidazoles (such as clotrimazole, miconazole and econazole) and allylamines, of which there is currently only one product, terbinafine. There is little difference in terms of cure rate, although imidazoles such as clotrimazole require treatment for up to four weeks.

The reason for the difference in treatment duration is that allylamines are fungicidal, thus killing the fungus, whereas imidazoles are fungistatic and merely prevent further growth of the organism, relying on the normal process of skin shedding to remove any further living fungi.

Combination products such as Daktacort and Canesten HC include 1% hydrocortisone with the imidazole and may be used for up to seven days if the infection is associated with inflammation.
