Daktarin Powder is a medicine which is used to
treat infections of the skin which may appear on the

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.

Info Leaflet

Before taking any medication, it is important to read the Patient Information Leaflet. You can find information leaflets for your medicines by typing them into the search bar at medicines.org, or by contacting us.

Directions

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.
  • Apply twice daily
