Daktarin Sugar Free 2% Oral Gel

Daktarin Sugar Free 2% Oral Gel treats and prevents fungal and bacterial infections of the mouth and throat in adults and children from 4 months. It contains miconazole which works by destroying the fungus and associated bacteria which may be present. 
  • Infants and children 4 months to 6 years old: Apply a small amount to the affected area twice a day. When giving the gel to a child or infant, make sure that the gel does not become a choking hazard by dividing each application into smaller portions - never put the whole amount in the mouth of the child at once. Make sure you place the gel at the front of the mouth - never put it at the back of the throat. If the infant is 4 - 6 months old, and is premature or has slow development, check with your doctor before using this medicine.
  • Adults and children aged 6 years and over: Apply a small amount to the affected area 4 times a day.  If you are wearing dentures, you should preferably remove them at bedtime and rub them with the gel. This will help prevent your dentures becoming infected as well.
Use after meals. Apply directly to the affected area with a clean finger. Try to keep the gel in contact with the affected area for as long as possible. Continue treatment for up to 2 days after all the symptoms have cleared.
  • Active Ingredient: Miconazole 20mg/g. 
  • Other Ingredients: Purified Water, Pregelatinised Potato Starch, Ethanol, Polysorbate 20, Sodium Saccharin, Cocoa Flavour, Orange Flavour and Glycerol.
  • Daktarin Sugar Free 2% Oral Gel is sticky. This ensures that it stays in the mouth for as long as possible. If you are giving the gel to a child or infant, make sure that the gel does not close off the child’s or infant’s throat as they could choke on it. You should place the gel at the front of 
  • the mouth - never put it at the back of the throat.
  • If the infant is 4-6 months old, and is premature or has slow development, check with your doctor before using this medicine.
  • Daktarin Sugar free 2% Oral Gel contains small amounts of ethanol (alcohol), less than 100 mg per dose.
