Hongo Cura Anti-Fungal Ointment for Athlete's Foot

Hongo Cura Anti-Fungal Ointment - Does It Work?-Review

What is Hongo Cura Anti-Fungal Ointment?

This product claims to cure athlete's foot and relieve the itching and burning associated with it. Athlete's foot is a fungal infection so this product is designed to eliminate the fungus. This review examines the intricate details about this product to assess whether it is the best option to use against an athlete's foot infection.

Ingredients & How It Works

Both ingredients are able to interfere with the membrane that surrounds a fungal cell. When the fungal cell membrane loses its integrity due to this effect it is much more likely to rupture and kill the fungus. These two ingredients therefore eliminate fungal infections.

We've noted some research that shows the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of zinc. It is always beneficial for topical products to have some form of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredients. However, we believe zinc on its own is not as effective as other direct anti-inflammatory compounds, especially when multiple ingredients with anti-inflammatory effects are included in a product.

Daily Serving

This product must be applied to the affected area twice today in the morning and in the evening. It is recommended for customers to wash and dry their feet thoroughly before applying this product and for them to make an effort to apply the product between the toes where some of the fungi might hide. The infection is cleared quicker if ventilated shoes are worn and socks are changed at least once a day.

The Cost

The price of a 1 oz tube when purchasing online is $14.99. This excludes shipping and taxes. There doesn't seem to be any sort of discount offered for buying multiple packages of Hongo Cura Anti-Fungal Ointment or subscribing for any sort of regular order.


We could not find any evidence of a guarantee for this product. This is unfortunate as a guarantee generally expresses greater confidence in the product. Likewise if customers do not receive positive results then they have simply wasted their money on a product that does not work. Many leading manufacturers do have a guarantee on their products so customers do not have to waste their money.

Our Review Summary Of HC Max Hongo Cura Anti-Fungal Ointment

The manufacturer explains how to use the product very clearly and simply to avoid any reduction in results. We found the price of this product to be very fair as well. We approve of the science behind the ingredients in this product too, but there are some problems with their effectiveness and the side effects that they cause (dry and cracked skin). We also believe it is quite detrimental for a product to be lacking a guarantee. This is because customers have no peace of mind when they purchase the product. They essentially bear the consequences of the product not working even though it is not their fault. This is why we thoroughly believe products should always have a guarantee so customers should rather look at such products.
