Description

What is Daktarin Gold?

Daktarin Gold is a treatment for athlete’s foot which can also be used to treat inflamed sweat rash and jock itch. It tackles the cause of infection and helps to provide long-lasting protection from returning fungi or yeast which cause infections.

What is athlete’s foot?

Athlete’s foot is a fungal skin infection which often starts between your toes before spreading onto your foot. It causes itchy, red, and flaky skin which can make you feel uncomfortable and irritated, and will often be accompanied by an unpleasant ‘cheesy’ smell.

How does Daktarin Gold treat athlete’s foot and other skin infections?

Daktarin Gold contains the active ingredient ketoconazole, which works to destroy the fungi and yeast which cause skin infections such as athlete’s foot. By destroying these fungi, Daktarin Gold helps to treat the infection while protecting against further infections.
