Oral fungal infections are usually harmless, but they can be unpleasant. Symptoms include white lesions that bleed when touched, a sore throat and gums, and an unpleasant taste in the mouth. Creams and gels used to treat oral fungal infections contain miconazole, an effective anti-fungal ingredient. This destroys the fungus and prevents any infection from taking hold.
Daktarin oral gel and cream can be used to treat fungal infections in the ears, mouth, and throat. Use the gel for a mouth and throat infection, and cream for the ears and other areas of skin. For best results, apply once or twice daily.
