Basic Information: What is Equate Athlete’s Foot Powder Spray?
Welcome to our in-depth Equate Athlete’s Foot Powder Spray review. The Equate Athlete’s Foot Powder Spray is said to be able to treat most athlete’s foot and help prevent it from coming back. This spray can also alleviate itching and burning sensations on your feet which might be caused by other types of fungal infection.
The Equate Athlete’s Foot Powder Spray contains an active ingredient called Tolnaftate (1%) which is a synthetic thiocarbamate that is often used to treat fungal infections and can be bought from drugstores without the need of any sort of medical prescriptions. Other inactive ingredients found in this product include:
- Alcohol SD 40-B A

First, you need to clean the affected area properly with soap and warm water and dry it thoroughly. Be sure to shake the spray well before each use. It is important that you keep the spray 6 inches away from the affected area before using to get maximum benefits. Spray a thin layer over the area two times per day (morning and night). For those who look to treat athlete’s foot be sure to spray areas between the toe, wear comfortable and well-fitting socks and well-ventilated shoes. Treatment of fungal infection using this product can last up to 4 weeks as stated on the box.
The Equate Athlete’s Foot Powder Spray is available in most drugstores as well as legitimate online stores. It is currently priced at $4.14 per 4.6 oz. can of spray. Discounts are available in these online stores but it depends on their specific promotions.
What to Expect
The Equate Athlete’s Foot Powder Spray has a pleasant smell which helps with foot odor as well. After using it as instructed I have seen positive result in just a month. However, there are still faint traces of fungal infection even after 4 weeks of continuous use of the spray. It is effective, but I am afraid it is not as effective as other antifungal sprays out there.
Keep an Eye Out
As per usual, it is important to discontinue the use of any product if you react negatively to it. Irritations, redness and burning sensations after using the Equate Athlete’s Foot Powder Spray should not be taken lightly, if these side effects does occur stop using the product contact your doctor immediately.
There are no statements given by the manufacturer when it comes to refunds and returns. However, customer reviews are mostly positive and while there are issues of its effectiveness with other customers it still has a relatively high rating, all things considered.
The Bottom Line
The Equate Athlete’s Foot Powder Spray is an affordable anti-fungal spray and this is a big advantage. It is also quite effective in most cases of treating athlete’s foot. However, it is important to note that results take a bit longer than usual. There are even occasions when a customer stated that he needed to use an additional anti-fungal product to speed up treatment. Fortunately, there is a huge selection of top anti-fungal products to choose from.
