About

What is Gyno-Daktarin?

Gyno-Daktarin is an antifungal cream which is used to treat vaginal thrush. The cream is used inside the vagina to soothe the symptoms and clear the infection. 

How does Gyno-Daktarin work?

Gyno-Daktarin contains a medicine called Miconazole Nitrate. This antifungal works by killing the fungus and bacteria which cause the infection, stopping it from spreading and clearing the symptoms. 

How long does Gyno-Daktarin take to work?

Gyno-Daktarin cream will usually take 7 days to clear the infection. If your symptoms disappear before this, keep using the medicine for the full 7 days to ensure that the infection is treated properly. 

What causes thrush?

Thrush is caused by the yeast from the Candida fungus. This is naturally present inside the vagina and only causes problems if disruption is caused to the balance of micro-organisms, triggering the Candida fungus to multiply. There are several possible factors which makes thrush more likely to happen: 

  • Pregnancy 
  • A weakened immune system 
  • Antibiotics 
  • Poorly controlled diabetes 
  • Having sex when you are not fully aroused 
  • Menstruating women in their twenties and thirties are more likely to experience thrush 
  • Wearing tight clothing 
  • Washing with perfumed soaps and body washes 
  • Using scented sanitary products 

What are the symptoms of thrush?

The symptoms of thrush can be uncomfortable and include: 

  • Itching and soreness around the labia 
  • White vaginal discharge 
  • Pain during sex 
  • A stinging sensation while urinating

How do I know if I have thrush or an STI?

Thrush is a yeast infection which causes external itching and soreness and a white discharge from the vagina. STIs such as chlamydia and gonorrhoea may also cause vaginal discharge which can be white, clear, yellow or green in colour. Genital herpes causes blister like sores. If you have any of these symptoms then you should get tested for STIs. It is possible to have both thrush and a sexually transmitted infection. An STI does not always cause symptoms however so if you are unsure it's best to get checked out. Dr Felix have a range of at home testing kits for maximum discretion. 

Can thrush be passed on during sexual intercourse?

Thrush is not a sexually transmitted infection but you can pass it on to your sexual partner. If you have thrush, you may want to advise your partner to see their GP for an appropriate treatment. Sexual intercourse can trigger thrush if you experience vaginal dryness or if you have sex without being fully aroused. 

Will Gyno-Daktarin help Bacterial Vaginosis?

Gyno-Daktarin is designed specifically for the treatment of thrush. If you have symptoms of bacterial vaginosis then you will need to get treatment which is suitable for the infection. Thrush treatment like Gyno-Daktarin will not help bacterial vaginosis. 

How is male thrush treated?

Male thrush is treated with either Clotrimazole cream or Fluconazole tablets. Gyno-Daktarin should not be used as it is specifically for treating vaginal thrush.

Dosage

How to use Gyno-Daktarin
