The formula applies a dual action – stopping the fungus and absorbing moisture. The product soothes the skin, but also relieves the burning, itching, and scaling.

Athlete’s Foot Review – The Bottom Line
On the surface this product seems an easy-to-apply product that offers a dual action – treating the problem and preventing the conditions for this problem to occur again. In addition, it should be mentioned that the instructions for using this product are easy and clearly indicated. However, there are some concerns about this product. Firstly, the manufacturers themselves do not seem to offer a guarantee. A guarantee indicates that the manufacturer is confident that their product is effective. The lack thereof does raise some concerns. Secondly, the inclusion of the active ingredient miconazole nitrate (two percent) seems suitable; however, clinical research studies have found that undecylenic acid is best at dealing with the fungus that leads to athlete’s foot. Thirdly, no discounts or package deals are offered, which could have made this product more economical than other, similar athlete’s foot treatments on the market. In the long run, people using this type of product regularly would have saved. Lastly, the use of a powder may prove messy. There are other, more targeted, better research products on the market, which may be a better option than this product.
