What is oral thrush?

Oral thrush is a fungal infection which develops in the mouth. It can be caused by having a weakened immune system due to an underlying disease such as diabetes or HIV. It can also be triggered by some medicines, such as corticosteroid inhalers.

You should speak to your doctor if you are unsure whether you are at an increased risk of developing thrush.

Symptoms of oral thrush include:

  • Redness inside the mouth and throat
  • Stinging or burning sensation in the mouth
  • Unpleasant taste
  • White patches in the mouth

Thrush can spread if it gets into the bloodstream, so it’s important to treat oral thrush as soon as you can.

While oral thrush can be passed on to others through kissing, it is unlikely to cause infection this way unless they are already at risk of developing oral thrush.

Women may experience thrush on nipples, caused by breastfeeding a child with an oral thrush infection.

Oral thrush can be treated with over-the-counter oral thrush gel such as Daktarin Oral Gel, which you can buy from UK registered pharmacies such as Prescription Doctor.

How does Daktarin Oral Gel work against oral thrush?

Daktarin Oral Gel contains an antifungal called miconazole.

Miconazole destroys fungal cells by causing holes to develop their membranes. As a result, the insides of the cells spill out, killing them in the process.

Miconazole gel is applied directly to the affected areas in the mouth, where it acts directly upon the infection.

How do I use Daktarin Oral gel?

Daktarin Oral Gel is applied topically to the inside of the mouth to treat oral thrush. It is easy to apply and comes in a convenient tube.

The gel is sugar-free and orange flavoured.

The typical dose of Daktarin Oral Gel for Adults and children over the age of two is 2.5 ml (half a 5 ml spoonful) 4 times a day.

You should apply Daktarin Oral Gel at regular intervals throughout the day after food.

When measuring the amount of Daktarin Oral Gel, you should use the 5 ml medical spoon provided. Using a kitchen spoon may provide an inaccurate quantity of Daktarin Oral Gel, resulting in taking too little or too much.

Using a clean finger, apply the gel to the affected areas inside your mouth.

Keep the gel in your mouth for as long as possible - don’t swallow it straight away.

How long should I use Daktarin Oral Gel for?

Usually, you should take Daktarin for about 2 weeks.

It usually takes 1 week for Daktarin Oral Gel to clear symptoms of oral thrush. However, you should continue taking Daktarin Oral Gel for 1 week after the symptoms have disappeared.

If your symptoms do not clear up, speak to your doctor.

How do I use Dakatrin Oral Gel with dentures?

Daktarin Oral Gel can be used with dentures.

Remove your dentures and rub some Daktarin Oral Gel on them before bed. This can help to prevent thrush from infecting your dentures.

What should I do if I forget to use Daktarin Oral Gel when I should?

If you forget to use Daktarin Oral Gel when you should, use it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and use Daktarin Oral Gel at the next usual time.

Do not use more Daktarin Oral Gel to make up for a missed dose.

What should I do if I use more Daktarin than I should?

If you or someone else uses more Daktarin Oral Gel than you should, inform your doctor as soon as possible or go straight to the nearest accident and emergency. Remember to take the packaging with you, even if there is no medicine left, as this can be useful for doctors treating you.
