Daktarin Oral Gel Over The Counter
I had some vaginal itching about 2 months ago. The gynae gave me Gyna-Daktarin vaginal cream. Unfortunately the itching is back with a condensed milk type discharge. What over the counter treatment is available?
Try azole derivative: Monistat-3 (miconazole) or Terazol (terconazole) -3 vaginal suppositories or cream with applicator., if not allergic to these medicines. Itching with white discharge suggests a yeast infection; however, if having unprotected intercourse, get an STD screen. No thong underwear, no oral oral penile sex for 1 week. Cotton boxers. Good luck. ...Read more
"My mouth is coated with a furry texture. Been like that for over a year. My Dr first suggested I use Andolex mouth wash. Then went on to Flagyl, Nystacid oral suspension and Daktarin gel. This year, tried canesten troche lozengers. NOTHING HELPS?
I have dark spots on my arms, thighs and legs. Also had oral thrush but it cleares after using daktarin oral gel. I am a smoker. Do I have hiv?
Depends...: The only way to know if you have HIV is to be tested. Does your life style promote the risk of HIV? Do you have unprotected sex with multiple partners? Etc. That being said, Your skin symptoms are not specific for HIV. Have your brown spots looked at by a dermatologist and at the same time ask him/her to test you for HIV ...Read more
I have dark spots on my arms, thighs and legs, could this be hiv? I also just had a bout of oral thrush which I treated with daktarin oral gel and it.
Daktarin oral gel is Miconazole 2%. It usually takes several days to see improvement but you should not stop using it once it has improved. Continue taking it for several days after it has resolved to help prevent recurrence.
Mycelex troches can also be used and are probably easier to use since they are lozenges that you let slowly dissolve in your mouth. ...Read more

Could I use any kind of benzoyl peroxide over-the-counter gel or do I need a doctors prescription?
Up to 10% is available over-the-counter and it is also the active ingredient in the ever-popular "proactiv", although keep in mind it may be difficult to cancel your subscription to Proactiv if you start.
If there is poor response, you should see a doctor or practioner. ...Read more

Is Benzoyl peroxide 5% / clindamycin 1% gel available over the counter or is it a prescription only medication?
I used metro gel for bv and noticed white clumpy discharge soon after finishing. I assumed it was a yeast infection because I've had these in the past and read this was a side effect. I bought over the counter monistat 1. I'm on day 2 and still have white
Probably not yeast: The main symptom of vaginal yeast is itching or irritation, not discharge -- and a little "white clumpy discharge" isn't necessarily abnormal. So my best guess is that you didn't have a yeast infection, which is why the Monistat isn't making any difference. Stop all treatment for several days, then see a doctor for if you believe discharge still is abnormal. And no sex in the meantime. Good luck! ...Read more

Hi, my baby has thrush. I am using a creche gaurd, cetaphil cleanser, canestan, dilucorte, nustacid and bactroban and oral daktarin. Anything else?
Overtreatment: You are way overtreating this problem. Canesten (clotrimazole), Nystacid (nystatin), and Daktarin (miconazole) all are anti-yeast, but none is better than the others and any one alone would be fine. Dilucort (hydrocortisone) could be harmful, making yeast (thrush) worse. The others won't hurt but also not likely to help. Check w/ the child's doctor. Use what s/he suggested, and nothing else. ...Read more
I have dark spots on my arms, my thighs and my legs. I also had a bout of oral thrush but it has clear now after using daktarin oral. I am hiv +?
See your doctor.: Although they may turn out to be completely inconsequential, new changes in the skin should be checked out in anyone who is HIV-positive. It is always possible to have something like Kaposi's sarcoma or other illnesses that can be seen on the skin, so it is wise to get checked out. Good luck. ...Read more

Hairloss and eyebrows and lashes itchy. Went to dermatology precribe me ketrozol and trbinafine daktarin for eyebrows and Dermovate selsun shampoor?
First you probably: Need blood work to rule out thyroid problems. Topical antifunals can help with itchy brows and lashes, but you many need a steroid as well. Selsun shampoo probably won't do much. Try your meds for three weeks, if not better see derm in follow-uo ...Read more

I'm using Daktarin for cuts on my foreskin but I have many scars and the cuts heal slowly or not at all. How do I heal them both without circumcision?
? Prepucioplasty: Foreskin keeps splitting because you have a degree of phimosis (it's too tight to retract easily) Now unlikely to respond to steroid cream due to scarring. Next most effective treatment would be prepucioplasty. Vertical incision is made thu constricting area on upper surface & sutured transversely. Skin will now be loose & retract easily & avoid further splits once it has healed. ...Read more
