Application of a thin coating of Athlete’s Foot/Jock Itch Control should occur thrice a day on washed and dried skin, or as a doctor directs. Spaces between toes should be paid particular attention in the case of Athlete’s Foot. This condition requires daily treatment for four weeks whereas Jock Itch requires only two weeks of treatment.
Forces of Nature sell Athlete’s Foot/Jock Itch Control in two sizes. An 11ml bottle costs $14.95 and is good for 90 applications, or a month’s supply. A 33ml bottle costs $34.85 and is capable of 270 applications or as a 3-month supply.
What to Expect
After using the remedy for a number of weeks, I can say that the manufacturer has made some claims about their product that are wrong. While this natural remedy provides some relief to the itchy symptoms that accompany Athlete’s Foot, it does not provide total relief, as the claims seem to suggest it should. It does successfully treat the condition as it is supposed to do but you will not get the 90 applications that the manufacturer states you should be able to achieve with the smaller 11ml bottle. In fact, applying the product can be a little tricky and you may find yourself using more of it per application than you would expect, especially if you have a very widespread infection. It does absorb easily enough but if you have used too much, which is easy to do unintentionally, you may be required to wipe off the excess oil. It is a pleasant smelling product and it is organic so it is a nice alternative to other strong smelling, over the counter treatments that you can get.
Keep an Eye Out
Certain individuals may experience sensitivity towards a number of the oils in this product. You should not allow this cream to come into contact with your eyes but if it does, they must be flushed with water immediately and medical attention sought. In the event that irritation occurs, or your condition has not improved within the allotted treatment time then suspend usage and seek out medical aid. Those aged two and under must not use this product unless a doctor states otherwise. Those who are nursing or pregnant should consult with a medical professional prior to the use of this product.
Forces of Nature are so committed to their products that they offer a 1-year money back guarantee. This means that you have a full year to return their products if they are not working for you. This refund is limited to three bottles of any one product. Products can be returned after they have been opened but this is probably limited to one open bottle if you wish to return multiple products. It was difficult to find reviews of this product but we were able to find three on Amazon. They were all happy with the results the Athlete’s Foot/Jock Itch Control achieved although one of them thought another product did a better job.
The Bottom Line
This remedy has a very generous guarantee as the company leaves you with ample time to return the product if it turns out that it does not work for you. You are not limited by short time guarantees where you might fail to return the product within in the appointed window of time. Some good reviews have been made about Athlete’s Foot/Jock Itch Control although they are limited in number and do not give an accurate representation of what the majority of customers think about this treatment. Considering that an 11ml bottle is treatment for 1 month and may not even last that long, this product can be seen as being a little on the pricey side although not very expensive when compared to similar products that are out there. The oils contained in this remedy may cause irritation for those with sensitive skin, especially those sensitive to certain plant oils. Athlete’s Foot/Jock Itch Control has been certified to be organic and the manufacturer says that it is the first product of its type to achieve this sort of certification. However, this achievement does not make up for such flaws as the tricky application that makes it difficult to apply an appropriate amount of oil to the infected site. Lastly, it may not relieve symptoms completely although this varies from person to person. You should take all of these points into consideration before you choose to purchase this item although we think there may be better alternatives out there.
