Having athlete's foot is no walk in the park for those who know the itching, burning, annoying sensations associated with this ailment. For me, I have been battling this situation for many years, and though some antifungal ointment and creams work for a little while, to-date, none have been able to do a permanent job. I have tried so many productsin the past that maybe I should have strarted my very own foot cream store (lol), even some that have been taken off the market, from those that work (for a while) to those that don't work at all, from Tinactin to Daktacort cream I have tried it. Now I am using a "maximum strength antifungal ointment" from CVS and like the rest, it helps for a while, clears it up, but as soon as you stop using it for a day or two, the symptoms return as if I wasn't using the product at all. So far, i can't recommend using any of these creams for athlete's foot as none have done the job for me on a long lasting period. The CVS antifungal cream doesn't cost that much, nor does most of the other creams available, but the cost for the discomfort is not worth it if it doesn't work for a long period of time.
