Micatin Antifungal Cream for Athlete's Foot

Micatin Antifungal Cream - Does it Work?-Review

What is Micatin Antifungal Cream?

Micatin Antifungal Cream is a formulation of the active ingredient Miconazole Nitrate in the form of a topical cream. This topical cream is aimed at treating the symptoms of Athlete’s Foot, Jock Itch, as well as Ringworm, which include burning, itching and scaling skin. We look into the positive and negative aspects of this product to determine whether or not it is a solution for fungal skin infections or not.

Ingredients & How it Works

Main Ingredient:

  • Miconazole Nitrate (2%)

Miconazole Nitrate has been clinically proven to attack and disable the activity of fungal infections which are found in the skin. As this ingredient is an active ingredient, we wonder why there is only a 2 % concentration of the ingredient. What also concerns us is the fact that there is a lack of Undecylenic Acid, which is actually proven to be the strongest antifungal on the market.

Undecylenic Acid may be concentrated at 25% which allows it to work at maximum potency.

Other Ingredients:

  • Benzoic Acid
  • Butylated Hydroxyanisole
  • Mineral Oil
  • Pegicol 5
  • Oleate
  • Pegoxol 7 Stearate
  • Purified Water

Daily Serving

Those using this product to treat Jock Itch should apply the cream on a daily basis, whereas those using this product for the treatment of Athlete’s Foot or Ringworm can apply the cream on a daily basis but over a period of 4 weeks. Athlete’s Foot and Ringworm sufferers should pay close to attention to the skin between the toes and are advised to change their shoes and socks once a day.

To apply the cream, wash and thoroughly dry the site of infection and apply a small amount of the cream to it in the morning and in the evening, or as directed by your doctor.

The manufacturer warns that should this product be ingested, that a poison center be contacted immediately and that should adverse reactions occur. They also state that should

Our Review Summary of Micatin Antifungal Cream

In this review of Micatin Antifungal Cream, we like that this product is easy to use and that it can address Jock Itch as well as Ringworm besides for Athlete’s Foot, but all in all, we also need to take into account that this product lacks very important aspects of being a reasonable product. The fact that is protected by a very short guarantee period and lacks the ingredient Undecylenic Acid are the main areas of concern. Micatin Antifungal Cream also contains many other additives which may weaken the blend.
