Thank you for your query.

Daktarin Gel contains miconazole which is a potent anti-fungal. It shall take some time to have its effect. I suggest that you continue taking the medication and also do mouth wash with Listerine solution for relief. Once your chest infection is under control it shall be advisable to stop Ciplox as antibiotics tend to aggravate fungal superinfection.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing you an early recovery.
