Daktarin Sugar Free 2% Oral Gel contains the active ingredient Miconazole 2% and is used to prevent and treat fungal and bacterial infections of the mouth and throat. 

Miconazole is a topical antifungal which can be applied directly to the affected area to treat and manage fungal and bacterial infections. 

Oral thrush is an infection in the mouth caused by a yeast germ called candida. Yeasts are a type of fungus, and the mouth is a common site where candida causes infection. Certain situations or conditions can cause an overgrowth of candida which can lead to a bout of oral thrush. These include being a baby, having a dry mouth, wearing dentures, after a course of antibiotics, using corticosteroid inhalers, having diabetes or anaemia, being in poor health, and smoking.

The symptoms of oral thrush are that the mouth becomes red, and white spots sometimes develop. Although some mild infections are painless, oral thrush can make your mouth quite sore and can make eating and drinking uncomfortable. Some babies with oral thrush may not be able to feed properly because of the soreness. Miconazole eases these symptoms by killing the candida fungus.
