Daktarin Oral Gel

£5.79

Daktarin Oral Gel is a treatment for fungal infections and oral thrush which can be used in the mouth, or for infections in the throat, gut, or stomach. Its sugar-free formula is suitable for children as young as four months old and has a tasty orange flavour which will make it easier to use this medication until your infection has completely cleared.

Information Leaflet

Uses / Instructions

How to apply the gel

• Each tube of the gel is sealed – use the cap to pierce the seal
• For oral use only
• Keep the gel in the mouth as long as possible. Do not swallow it straight
away
• If the infection is just in the mouth, apply directly to the affected area with a
clean finger
• If you are wearing dentures, remove them at bedtime and rub them with
the gel. This helps stop your dentures becoming infected too
• Do not use more than the stated dose
• Use after meals
• If you are giving the gel to a child or infant aged 4 months or over, make
sure that the gel does not become a choking hazard by making sure you
place the gel at the front of the mouth

How much gel to use

Your doctor will tell you how much Daktarin oral gel to take and for how long
you should take it. Your doctor will probably suggest the following treatment
course:

Infections of the mouth and throat:

• Adults and Children over 2 years: 2.5 ml (half a 5ml spoonful) of gel
applied four times a day after food.
• Infants 4 months – 2 years: 1.25 ml (one quarter of a 5 ml spoonful) of
gel applied four times a day after food. Each application should be
divided into smaller portions.

If the infant is 4-6 months old, and is premature or has slow development,
check with your doctor before using this medicine

If symptoms persist, talk to your doctor.

When to stop using Daktarin oral gel

Keep using the gel for at least a week after all the symptoms have gone away.
This will stop the symptoms from coming back.

If you forget a dose

• Do not apply the missed dose of gel
• Apply the next dose of gel as usual and keep using it as your doctor has
told you
• Do not use a double dose of gel to make up for a missed dose

If you use more Daktarin oral gel than you should

If you use more Daktarin oral gel than you were told to or if someone else has
taken any, talk to a doctor or go to the nearest hospital casualty department
straight away.

If you have any further questions on the use of this product, ask your doctor or
pharmacist.

Warnings

Caution when using Daktarin Oral Gel:

  • Daktarin oral gel is sticky. You should be careful to ensure that the gel doesn’t obstruct the throat, as this may cause choking, particularly in children. The gel should not be put at the back of the throat, and the prescribed dose may be divided into smaller portions.
  • If you have false teeth (dentures) and are treating oral thrush you should brush the gel onto your dentures after you take them out at night to kill any fungus that may be on the dentures.
  • Treatment with this medicine should be continued for two days after the symptoms have cleared up to ensure the infection is fully treated and prevent it from coming back.
  • Take at regular intervals.
  • Complete the prescribed course unless otherwise directed.
