What is Daktarin Intensiv? 

Daktarin Intensiv is a cream containing ketoconazole used to treat fungal skin infections on the feet (Athlete’s Foot) or in the groin area (Dhobe Itch/tinea cruris). This cream is highly effective in relieving the itchiness caused by these infections and will also provide long-lasting protection against Athlete’s Foot. 

How to use this cream

Wash the infected area of the skin and make sure it’s thoroughly dry, particularly in between the toes. Keep your towel to yourself to avoid spreading the contagious infection to other people. Apply a thin layer of the cream onto the affected area and the surrounding skin. Wash your hands carefully after applying the cream to avoid spreading the infection to other people. Unless told otherwise by your doctor or pharmacist, apply Daktarin Intensiv to the affected area once or twice a day. 

How does ketoconazole work? 

The active ingredient in Daktarin Intensiv is ketoconazole, an antifungal medication. This medicine works to treat fungal infections by killing the fungus and preventing its further growth. 

What is Athlete’s Foot? 

Athlete’s Foot is a common fungal infection that causes the skin between your toes to become red, itchy, flaky and/or cracked. The infection can cause an unpleasant ‘cheesy’ smell. Athlete’s Foot generally occurs when warm, moist conditions cause fungi that normally live on your skin to grow out of control. 

When should Daktarin Intensiv not be used? 

Do not use Daktarin Intensiv if you have ever had an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients. Speak to your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist before using this cream if you are diabetic or have recently used a cream, ointment or lotion on your skin infection that contains a corticosteroid. 

Are there any side effects? 

You may experience some irritation when using Daktarin Intensiv which can result in itchiness, redness, a burning sensation or in uncommon cases a rash, pricking sensation, sticky skin, eczema, dryness, hives or bleeding. If you experience any signs of a severe allergic reaction (peeling or blistering of the skin) seek medical attention immediately.
