Below are some of your options. All OTC products mentioned below were available on Amazon as of 5/17/2016.
Creams and Gels
- You can buy 1% Tolnaftate cream here: Tinactin or Family Care Tolnaftate Cream.
- You can buy 1% Clotrimazole cream here: Family Care Clotrimazole Anti Fungal Cream, 1%.
- You can buy 2% Clotrimazole cream here: Clotrimazole 3-Day Vaginal Cream.
- You can buy 1% Terbinafine (Lamisil) cream here: Equate Athlete's Foot Terbinafine HCl.
- You can buy 1% Terbinafine (Lamisil) gel here: Lamisil Once. Supposedly it forms an invisible film that "allows the active ingredient to continuously fight the fungal infection over an extended period of days".
- You can buy 2% Miconazole Nitrate cream here: Monistat 7 Vaginal Antifungal Cream or you can look for generic Miconazole Nitrate.
- You can buy 4% Miconazole Nitrate cream here: Monistat 3 Vaginal Antifungal Cream.
- You can buy 6.5% Tioconazole cream here: Monistat 1 Vaginal Antifungal Cream.
- You need a prescription for things like: 2% Ketoconazole and 0.8% Terconazole. If the above products do not clear your problem up right away, you should go see your doctor. There are more effective (broader spectrum) anti-fungal creams. Your problem may not even be a fungal one.
Powders -- Powder helps to keep the area dry. Fungus grows in warm, moist areas. Do not put powder on areas that are supposed to be warm and moist.
- You can buy 1% Tolnaftate powder here: Tinactin Antifungal Powder.
- You can buy 2% Miconazole Nitrate powder here: Zeasorb, Desenex, or Lotrimin Antifungal Powder or you can look for a generic Miconazole powder.
- You can buy 1% Ketoconazole spray here: Ketohex Spray. Note that this is FOR PETS. Use it on humans at your own risk. This also contains 2% Chlorhexidine which is an anti-bacterial. I find that this product is easy to apply in areas where creams and powders are particularly difficult to apply. It also seems to be pretty effective.
Soaps and Shampoos
- You can buy 1% Ketoconazole shampoo here: Nizoral AntiDandruff Shampoo. The problem is that you wash it off right after you put it on. Supposedly it adheres to hair and is more effective on hairy areas.
Tea Tree Oil
- You can buy various liquids, creams, soaps, and shampoos with Tea Tree Oil (a natural anti-fungal). The ones that I have tried have been somewhat harsh on the skin -- drying and irritating.
Pills and Capsules
- You need a prescription for things like: Terbinafine, Itraconazole, or Fluconazole capsules. If topical treatments are not working, you may need a systemic medication. Long before you get to this point, you should be talking to your doctor. This is only mentioned here so that you can ask your doctor about it if he/she has not already mentioned the possibility of a systemic.
- Often topical anti-fungals do not work on problems with the fingernails and/or toenails. The fungus is too deep for a topical anti-fungal to get at it. An oral antifungal like Terbinafine (Lamisil), Itraconazole (Sporanox), or Fluconazole (Diflucan) can often take care of the problem. Itraxonazole worked for me. Take a pill once a month for 3 months and all of your nails start clearing up. It may take many months for a new healthy nail to grow in place. All of these require a prescription. Talk to your doctor.
- Go see your doctor. I am not a doctor, and I am not offering you any medical advice.
- Read the warning label and follow the instructions on the box.
- Wikipedia has pretty good information on the various anti-fungal medications (Clotrimazole, Miconazole, Terbinafine, etc.). Read about it before you use it.
- 2% cream is 2% cream. If you are a jock and you are embarrassed about using a "vaginal cream", put a piece of black tape over the word "vaginal".
- Keep applying the medication after the problem appears to have gone away, as stated in the directions. Otherwise, it will likely come back.
- Talk to your doctor about a maintenance plan to keep any new infections away.
- There are many types of fungi. There is not one anti-fungal product that kills all fungi. In general, prescription products kill a broader range of fungi than OTC products.
- Look for a cheaper generic product. 1% Clotrimazole is 1% Clotrimazole.
I have three boys who are all active in sports and the two in middle school also are required to use the locker room which is just a breeding ground for athletes feet. The clotrimazole works well in conjunction with good washing and drying habits. We've also added a few more products to our arsenal in the war on Athlete's Foot.
The biggest hurdle is just getting the boys to remember to use it until their feet are completely fungus free! We use Artnaturals Antifungal Soap with Tea Tree Oil - 100% Natural Best Foot and Body Wash 12 Oz, Helps with Nail Fungus, Athletes Foot, Ringworm, Jock Itch & Body Odor - Kills Bacteria & Relieves Itching to clean and then they dry their feet and toes really good. Next is the Clotrimazole and finally when they put their socks or shoes on in the morning before school they use Zeasorb Antifungal Treatment Powder, Athletes Foot, 2.5oz . Lastly I use Natural Shoe Deodorizer, Foot Deodorant Spray for Athletes. Removes Odor, Stink From Bacteria. Mint Spray Freshens Better Than Powders, Antiperspirants, Insoles, Sneaker Balls. Use on Feet and Shoes. in their shoes/shoe boxes to keep the front room smelling like sweaty boy shoes. Together these products make a killing team!
