Hydrozole Review


Manufacturer’s Claim

This Hydrozole review examines the potential of Hydrozole as an effective antifungal relief and athlete’s foot solution. The manufacturer claims that this product has a dual action effect – easing inflammation while fighting infection in the affected area. This review will examine the ingredients for potential efficacy as well as the price and guarantee for customer support; helping you make a wise purchase choice.

Formula

  • Clotrimazole (1%)
  • Hydrocortisone (1%)

Clotrimazole is the active fungus-fighting ingredient in the formula that also provides protection from future infection. However, this ingredient may not be as effective as Undecylenic Acid which is not only a popular choice in competing products but known to offer fast-acting relief.

Hydrocortisone is a substance known to relieve the symptoms of athlete’s foot like inflammation, pain, and itching. While hydrocortisone may be beneficial, it could be more efficient in offering relief if it were accompanied by natural ingredients that nourish and hydrate the skin and, in doing so, improve penetration and recovery time. The manufacturer does not state if this product is all-natural, vegan-friendly, or cruelty-free. Furthermore, there is also no mention if the manufacturing facility has a GMP certification. This is concerning as it may suggest that quality assurance was not a priority during production.

Instructions

This product contains an adequate dosage of 1% clotrimazole, making the concentration neither too high nor low. It is concerning to note that the manufacturer does not provide clear and concise instructions on how to effectively use this cream, which may suggest that that the customer’s well-being is of a lower priority than product sales. From our understanding; customers are to wash and dry feet and toes thoroughly. Then, apply the cream directly to the affected area, ensuring feet are well-covered in communal areas and that you are not scratching and aggravating the affected area.

Cost

A 30mg tube of Hydrozole can only be bought from pharmacies; this product is not available for purchase online. This does not meet the 21st-century market standard of online shopping. In saying so, it is uncertain if this product will be cost-effective or have discounts and other value-offers available.

Possible Side Effects

The use of clotrimazole, the key active ingredient, has been known to result in skin irritations and may not be suitable for those with sensitive skin. In saying so, we recommend doing a patch test first. If symptoms persist or are aggravated, discontinue use and seek medical attention.

Guarantee

It is concerning to note that there is no manufacturer guarantee available for this product, which suggests that the manufacturer has little to no confidence in the product’s effectiveness. Customer reviews are also absent, which is even more concerning as we have no testimonial if the product fulfills its claims or not.

Hydrozole  Review – The Bottom Line

This product contains accurately dosed active ingredients that have the potential to fight fungal infection as well as relieve associated symptoms of athlete’s foot. However, the lack of nourishing and hydrating ingredients likely impacts the recovery time and thus – prevent this product from being a total care solution. This product is not available for online purchase which makes it difficult to acquire. Furthermore, there is no manufacturer’s guarantee and limited customer reviews – instilling little confidence in the product’s effectiveness. This, combined with the questionable quality and lack of GMP certification, is why we do not recommend Hydrozole as the athlete’s foot solution of choice.
