|"Daktarin Cream is an antifungal cream effective for the treatment of athlete's foot, tinea, ringworm and thrush infections of the skin.|
How to prevent re-infection:
1. Fungal infections can be spread from one part of the body to another. Clothes that come into contact with the infected areas should be changed daily. A separate towel should be used to dry the infected area and towels should not be shared by any other family member.
2. The area should be kept clean. The dead scaly cells should not be allowed to build up as they carry the fungal cells. The site of infection should be cleaned twice daily.
3. The area should be kept well ventilated. Do not mistake the dry, scaly nature of some fungal infections for dry skin and worsen the infection by applying moisturisers which promote the growth of fungus. If the infection involves the feet. footwear that make the feet perspire should be avoided.
4. Treat for the right length of time. For best results, apply cream until the rash disappears and then for a further two weeks to make sure that the infection has completely cleared. It is important not to stop treatment even if the symptoms (eg burning, itching or pain) disappear in the first few days."
