Product description

Daktarin Intensive Cream is a medicine which is used to treat skin infections which may appear on the feet (Athlete’s Foot) or in the groin area (Dhobie Itch/tinea cruris).

Daktarin Intensive Cream rapidly relieves the itching which these fungalinfections cause. It also provides long lasting protection from Athlete’s Foot, as it will continue to work even afteryou have stopped using it.

Daktarin Intensive 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.
