Ringworm can strike at any moment and leave you with an undesirable infection that is painful, itchy, and dry. There is no quick fix when treating the root of the fungi and with the assorted ranges of treatments available on the market today, it is hard to tell which ones actually work. Today we review Terrasil Anti-Fungal Treatment MAX manufactured by Aidance. Terrasil Anti-Fungal Treatment MAX claims to have formulated an all-natural antifungal treatment that soothes and treats the infection with its patented Activated Minerals blend.
- Clotrimazole – 1%
- Beeswax (organic)
- Cottonseed oil
- Jojoba seed oil
- Magnesium oxide
- Mineral-rich clay
- Peppermint oil
- Silver oxide
- Tea tree oil
- Vegetable stearic acid (naturally sourced)
- Zinc oxide
Clotrimazole is a common ingredient used in antifungal products which is thought to prevent the further production and the spread of fungi, however, this does not treat the infection by targeting the root of the problem, it only masks the symptoms short term which can cause the outbreak to reoccur. Research has shown that using an alternative such as Undecylenic Acid is a more efficient ingredient for treating the root of the problem without the side effects that may aggravate the infection further.
Terrasil Anti-Fungal Treatment MAX advises consumers to apply the ointment on the infected area twice a day, or as prescribed by a doctor. There is no clear indication of how many days or weeks the ointment must be used, there is only a warning written in fine print on the packaging that one should consult a doctor if symptoms are still present after 4 weeks. There is also no clear timeframe for expected results and if you should continue using the product after symptoms have disappeared. Research shows that antifungal creams should be used for an additional week after symptoms have cleared up to prevent them from reoccurring.
Possible Side Effects
There are side effects associated with Clotrimazole which may worsen the condition and cause further irritation, burning, and itching. One should discontinue using Terrasil Anti-Fungal Treatment MAX if irritation occurs or if there is no sign of improvement within 4 weeks of using the product.
Depending on the severity of the fungal infection, Terrasil Anti-Fungal Treatment MAX offers 3 different size options, 14g, 50g, and 200g. The 14g tube retails for $29.00 online.

Conclusion of Our Terrasil Anti-Fungal Treatment MAX Review
Terrasil Anti-Fungal Treatment MAX does have some pros when looking for an over the counter antifungal ointment such as the impressive 90-day hassle free guarantee and all natural ingredients, however, this does not mean that it is effective in treating the root cause of fungal infections. There is no quick fix to fungal infections but there should be a clear indication of an approximate timeline stated on the product as to when consumers should start to see results, there is no mention of this on the product or website. Another con is that while Clotrimazole may be effective to some by masking current symptoms, it does not treat the cause of the infection, it only reduces the symptoms at the surface by prohibiting the growth of the fungus instead of combating the source of it. When conducting our research, we came across a variety of 1-star reviews from consumers complaining about the odor, price, and effectiveness of this product. In addition to this many reviews stated that the product actually made the symptoms worse, this could be due to the side effects listed at the beginning of the review. With both the pros and cons of this product in mind, Terrasil Anti-Fungal Treatment MAX does not seem to be effective in treating fungal infections and we recommend seeking alternative products when purchasing an antifungal treatment.
