Tinactin Antifungal Athlete's Foot Cream...A Cure For The Diaper Rash From He!!

Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Works, not greasy, does not stain, barely noticeable scent, so many uses

Cons:A bit expensive, worth it when your child is suffering

The Bottom Line: Works quickly, and has more uses then just clearing up foot fungus.


Has your child ever had a fiery red, lumpy, bumpy diaper rash? One that just won't go away? No matter how much wiping, drying, and powdering, you do, the rash will not go away!

Well, my daughter had a rash like this a few years ago, and recently my son has had one too. On both occasions I contacted my pediatrician, and he said, "Use Tinactin Antifungal Athlete's Foot Cream".

Tinactin? Isn't that for athletes foot? Yes, that was my reaction too. But, I can honestly tell you that this works.

The reason it works, is because a warm, moist sock on the foot, is a lot like a warm, moist diaper on a tushy! The rash is basically the same.

The first time my child had this rash, I took her to the doctor, to make sure the rash was nothing serious. This is always a good idea, when you aren't familiar with something, check with your doctor. That is after all what they are there for.

After spending several days at the pool, my son developed a rash. I knew what it was, and started using the Tinactin immediately. His bottom cleared up overnight.

What is in Tinactin Antifungal Athlete's Foot Cream?

Antifungal, topical

Description
Tolnaftate (tole-NAF-tate) belongs to the group of medicines called antifungals. It is used to treat some types of fungus infections. It may also be used together with medicines taken by mouth for fungus infections.

Before Using This Medicine
For tolnaftate, the following should be considered:

Allergies—Tell your doctor if you have ever had any unusual or allergic reaction to tolnaftate. Also tell your health care professional if you are allergic to any other substances, such as preservatives or dyes.

Pregnancy—Tolnaftate topical preparations have not been shown to cause birth defects or other problems in humans.

Breast-feeding—Tolnaftate topical preparations have not been reported to cause problems in nursing babies.

Children—Tolnaftate should not be used on children under 2 years of age, unless otherwise directed by your doctor. Although there is no specific information comparing use of tolnaftate in children 2 years of age and younger, this medicine is not expected to cause different side effects or problems in children 2 years of age and younger than it does in adults.

Older adults—Many medicines have not been studied specifically in older people. Therefore, it may not be known whether they work exactly the same way they do in younger adults or if they cause different side effects or problems in older people. There is no specific information comparing use of tolnaftate in the elderly with use in other age groups.

Other medicines—Although certain medicines should not be used together at all, in other cases two different medicines may be used together even if an interaction might occur. In these cases, your doctor may want to change the dose, or other precautions may be necessary. Tell your health care professional if you are using any other topical prescription or nonprescription (over-the-counter [OTC]) medicine that is to be applied to the same area of the skin.

Inactive ingredients:
Cetearyl Alcohol, Ceteareth-30, Chlorocresol, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Phosphate, Water.

Proper Use
Before applying tolnaftate, wash the affected area and dry thoroughly. Then apply enough medicine to cover the affected area. When you apply this cream, keep in mind that a little goes a long way. Don't pile it on, a thin skim works just fine. Do not use Tinactin Antifungal Athlete's Foot Cream for more then a month. If you have a rash that lasts this long, go see your doctor.

Keep this medicine away from the eyes. If you do get it in your eyes flush with water. If this product is ingested (eaten)seek medical help, call poison control center immediately.

Another use for Tinactin Antifungal Athlete's Foot Cream. Is curing ringworm. My niece developed ringworm on her arm a couple of years ago. Her mother applied Tinactin to her arm every day, several times a day for a few weeks. It did the trick. No more ringworm, no expensive dermatologist's bill.

So, don't be surprised if your doctor tells you to buy some Tinactin Antifungal Athlete's Foot Cream the next time your child gets a diaper rash that won't go away.

Thank you for reading. ~ Cyndi ~
