What is Daktacort HC Cream?
Daktacort Hydrocortisone cream is a topical treatment that can be used by adults and children aged 10 and over to treat inflamed conditions of the skin such as eczema and dermatitis, which may be caused by an infection with certain fungi or bacteria.
Daktacort contains two active ingredients: miconazole 2% and hydrocortisone 1%. You can order the Daktacort cream 15g pack size online, but the Daktacort cream 30g pack size is a prescription-only medicine.
How does Daktacort HC Cream work?
Daktacort contains the antifungal ingredient miconazole. Miconazole works by destroying the fungus that’s causing the skin infection. It can also work against certain bacteria that may be affecting the skin too.
The other ingredient in Daktacort is hydrocortisone, which is a mild topical steroid. This has an anti-inflammatory action on the affected skin and can help to reduce swelling, inflammation, itching, and redness.
Daktacort combines both ingredients to produce an antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial action. This means that it treats the cause of the skin infection, whilst soothing symptoms like itching and redness.
Fungal infections often present as itchy, inflamed, red, scaly rashes. They commonly appear in skin folds and in between the toes. The feet are particularly susceptible because shoes can become warm moist environments where fungus thrives.
What is Daktacort HC Cream used for?
Daktacort cream is used to treat fungal skin infections, including treating inflamed sweat rashes and athlete’s foot. It helps to kill the fungi causing the infection. It also helps to reduce the inflammation, itching, and redness caused by the fungus.
How long does Daktacort HC Cream take to work?
Daktarin should be used daily for at least 10 days to treat fungal nail and skin infections.
You should keep using the Daktarin cream up until 10 days even if it appears that your infection has cleared. If you stop using Daktarin earlier than 10 days the infection is more likely to come back.
If your infection has not improved after using Daktarin cream daily for 10 consecutive days you should speak to a doctor or pharmacist for advice.
