Daktarin Gold cream contains the active substance, ketoconazole, which works by destroying the fungi that cause Athlete's Foot, Dhobie Itch and Sweat Rash infections. The cream rapidly relieves the itching which these fungal infections cause. It also provides long lasting protection from Athlete's Foot, as it will continue to work even after you have stopped using it. Daktarin Gold is not greasy and should not stain clothes How to recognise fungal skin infections: Fungal infections of the skin are not usually serious. However, they can be persistent and their symptoms are nearly always unpleasant and upsetting. Symptoms include inflamed and broken skin, with itching and sometimes pain. Some infections slowly clear up by themselves whereas others are unlikely to clear without treatment. Re-infection is common. If you have Athlete's Foot: the skin between your toes will be red and itchy. Your skin may flake and crack and often the infection causes an unpleasant 'cheesy' smell. It is encouraged, by moist, warm conditions and can be recognised by redness, irritation and itchiness between the toes. Tinea Cruris or Dhobie Itch: is a fungal infection that occurs in the groin area and causes intense itching and inflammation (redness and soreness). In men, the skin of the scrotum is often affected. Candidal Intertrigo or Sweat Rash: which has been infected with a yeast infection ('thrush') is usually found under the breasts and where fleshy areas around the waist or under the armpits become damp with perspiration between the deep folds of skin. The skin area becomes red and sore and it often looks like moisture is coming from the skin surface.
