- For oral use only.
How to apply Daktarin Oral Gel
- 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. Do not swallow it straight away.
- If you are wearing dentures, remove them at bedtime and rub them with the gel. This will help prevent your dentures becoming infected as well.
- If you are 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 into the child’s mouth all at once. Make sure you place the gel at the front of the mouth.
- If the infant is 4-6 months old, and is premature or has slow development or problems swallowing, check with your doctor before using this medicine.
Adults and children aged 2 years and over - Apply 2,5 ml gel (½ measuring spoon) to the affected area four times a day after meals.
Infants and children 4 months – 2 years old: Apply 1,25 ml gel (¼ measuring spoon) to the affected area four times a day after meals.
- Continue treatment for up to 7 days after all the symptoms have cleared.
