Daktarin 2% Oral Gel

Daktarin Oral Gel is an important drug for treating infections in the lips, throat, gullet and stomach. It is an over - the-counter drug that can be prescribed to children aged 4 months and over, as well as adults.

How Effective Is Daktarin Oral Gel?

Daktarin Oral Gel is an effective product for treating mouth, throat, gullet and stomach infections. It is an over-the-counter medication that can be used for children 4 months and older and adults. Oral Diseases, a credible online journal cited that miconazole, the active ingredient in the gel, is more effective than nystatin in treating thrush. It further indicated that miconazole oral gel is a better option than other formulations when it comes to producing long-term results.

Can I Buy Daktarin Oral Gel Online?

Daktarin Oral Gel is an over-the-counter medicine. You can buy it online and in pharmacies without a prescription. Feel at ease to book an appointment with a health expert at Click Pharmacy to discuss how to best use this product. It can be purchased online in 5g, 15g, 30g, 40g and 80g tubes.

What Dose Should I Choose?

Daktarin Oral Gel comes in tubes of 5g, 15g, 30g, 40g and 80g. Twenty grams of miconazole is contained in every 1g of the gel. For mouth and throat infections, the dosage for children 2 years old and above and adults is 2.5ml of the gel to be applied 4 times daily after eating. Children aged 4 months to 2 years old should have 1.25ml of the gel applied on the affected area 4 times a day after eating as well

How Should I Use Daktarin Oral Gel?

Use Daktarin Oral Gel properly according to your doctor’s directions. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you need more information pertaining to the use of this medicine.

The tube of the gel is generally sealed. Using the cap, pierce the seal. Note that this product is only for oral use.

The gel should be kept in the mouth for as long as possible. Do not swallow it immediately upon application. 

For infections located in the mouth, apply for the medicine on the affected area using a clean finger.

Dentures should be removed before retiring at night. Rub the gel on them. This prevents the infection from spreading on to the dentures.

Do not apply more of the gel than recommended.

Use the gel after consuming your meals.

If you are applying the gel to an infant aged 4 months old or older, rub the gel at the front area of the mouth. It will keep the gel from becoming a choking hazard.

For the treatment of mouth and throat infections, apply 2.5ml of the gel 4 times daily after meals. Such is the dosage for children 2 years of age and older and adults. For children 4 months old to 2 years, apply 1.25ml of the gel after food.

Continue using the gel for a minimum of one week after the symptoms have vanished. This will prevent the infection from coming back. 

If you missed applying a dose, administer the next dose and use as your doctor has directed. Do not apply a double dose to make up for that you missed.

How Does Daktarin Oral Gel Work? 

Daktarin Oral Gel is an oral medication. It is used to treat fungal infections that occur in the mouth, the throat, the gullet and the stomach. Miconazole, the active ingredient in the product kills fungi and yeast by causing holes to appear in their cell membranes.

Twenty milligrams of miconazole is contained in every 1g of the oral gel. Children 4 months old and above and adults can use this product.

How Long Do I Use Daktarin Oral Gel For Before I Notice A Difference?

After all your symptoms have disappeared, keep on applying the gel for at least one week more. This is to guarantee that the infection will not recur. If you have used the gel for more than was intended or directed by your doctor, notify your doctor right away.
