What to Expect
I used this anti-fungal cream to treat my Athlete’s Foot for 4 weeks as the package said. Almost immediately I began to feel a relief to some of my symptoms like itching, burning and dryness. There was a noticeable improvement as the days went by. Within 4 weeks all signs of the fungus were gone, but it seemed to leave my skin very sensitive for a while after I stopped treatment. It has now been 3 months since I started the treatment and I have had to use it for maintenance a few times when the infection started coming back.
Keep an Eye Out
There was no mention of possible side effects on the NaturePlex website, however the active ingredient, Clotrimazole, can lead to the treated area becoming irritated, red or swollen. It can also cause bumpy and flaky skin as well as stinging or burning.
NaturePlex offers a satisfaction guarantee for this foot cream as well as all of their products. There are no questions asked. If you are not happy for whatever reason just return what is left of the cream and the company will issue a full refund.
The Bottom Line
The Athlete’s Foot Anti-fungal Cream by NaturePlex utilizes Clotrimazole, a well known and widely used treatment for fungal infections. The product is well priced although there does seem to be a vast difference in pricing from retailer to retailer. The fact that the manufacturer did not offer a list of side effects was somewhat questionable.
