This is Dr. David
that is good the pharmacist looked in your mouth and diagnosed thrush.
Daktarin oral gel is miconazole, an antifungal agent.
this can work over time but can take 1-2 weeks to clear up a mouth fungal thrush infection.
Daktarin oral gel should be held in the mouth for as long as possible before swallowing
swallowing the gel can make sure you kill any fungus in the back of your throat.
do see your GP doctor as soon as possible to look in your throat and mouth
let me know if you have questions.
