Daktarin Powder is a medicine which is used to treat infections of the skin which may appear on the hands, feet, outer ear, trunk or groin. It is also used to treat nappy rash. The powder contains miconazole nitrate which works by destroying both the fungus that causes the infection and some of the associated bacteria which may also be present. The powder helps to dry the skin as well as treat the infection.

This medicine is for use in adults and children of all ages.

Daktarin Powder contains miconazole nitrate and is for the treatment of mycotic infections of the skin due to Gram-positive bacteria. Always read the label.


■ For cutaneous use only, which means it is applied directly to the affected area of skin.

■ Wash the infected area and dry it well. As many skin conditions are contagious, you should keep a towel and flannel for your own use and not share it so that you do not infect anyone else.

■ Sprinkle the powder onto the infected area and surrounding skin. It may be used on broken skin and is particularly useful where a drying effect is required. The powder can also be dusted inside socks, shoes and clothing which are in contact with the infected area.

■ Wash your hands carefully after applying the powder to avoid spreading the infection to other parts of the body or to other people.  Similarly, clothing which comes into contact with the infected areas, such as socks, should be washed and changed frequently.

■ Do not use more often than the stated dose shown in the table.

Adults and children of all ages:  Apply the powder to the infected skin twice a day (e.g. at night and in the morning).

■ Continue treatment for 10 days after all the symptoms have cleared to prevent them from coming back.

■ If symptoms persist talk to your doctor.
