welcome to HealthcareMagic
As such there is no harm in using Daktozin ointment as it is a antifungal and contains Miconizole as the active ingredient.Although it is safe to use it but it is always better to consult a Paediatrician.So presently you can use it till you get an appointment with a Paediatrician and when you get the appointment and if there is no improvement in the rash then consult him.
