It provides fast soothing relief from oral thrush and mouth infections.
How to use:
Infants: 4-24 months: 1.25ml (1/4 measuring spoon) of gel, applied four times a day after meals. The gel should be applied to the affected area(s) with a clean finger. The gel should not be applied to the back of the throat due to possible choking. The gel should not be swallowed immediately, but kept in the mouth as long as possible.
Adults and children 2 years of age and older: 2.5ml (1/2 measuring spoon) of gel, applied four times a day after meals. The gel should not be swallowed immediately, but kept in the mouth as long as possible.
The treatment should be continued for at least a week after the symptoms have disappeared.
- Always check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking other medicines. This medicine can affect blood if you are taking warfarin.
- 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.
Side effects are not common with this medicine but may cause nausea and vomiting.
