Micatin Antifungal Cream is the theme of our product review in this article. The maker’s of this product formulated it to prevent the spread of fungal infections and provide relief from athlete’s foot. The manufacturer claims that the product formula contains beneficial ingredients that target fungus which grows within cracked and moist areas of the skin.
The main active ingredient found in the product’s formula is Miconazole Nitrate.
- benzoic acid
- butylated hydroxyanisole
- mineral oil
- peglicol 5 oleate
- pegoxol 7 stearate
- purified water
Miconazole Nitrate is known for its ability to fight fungal infections. The ingredient has been reported to cause negative side effects such as itching, burning, and swelling. This is a major concern as it contradicts the manufacturer’s statement that it provides relief from discomforting symptoms. There are safer ingredients found in alternative products such as Undecylenic Acid which is commonly used in competitor brands because of its superior relief properties as well as its ability to prevent the onset of infection in the future.
Wash and dry the affected area. Apply a thin layer of Micatin antifungal cream to the affected area twice a day (morning and night) for at least four weeks. Pay special attention to the spaces between the toes.

Conclusion of Our Micatin Antifungal Cream Review
There are a few appealing factors about this product. It contains a sufficient dosage of its key active ingredient and it is relatively affordable. We did find a number of disadvantages to this product however. Miconazole Nitrate, the main active ingredient in the product has been reported to cause negative side effects such as itching, burning, and swelling. This is a major concern as it contradicts the manufacturer’s statement that it provides relief from discomforting symptoms. The product lacks the ingredient Undecylenic Acid which is commonly used in competitor brands. The manufacturer does not provide enough information about dosage, warnings, or possible side effects. There are no bulk order discounts or new customer incentives provided by the manufacturer. There are not many reviews and those that we found contained many negative comments from people saying that the product was not effective while others complained of itching and burning. There is no assurance that the product’s ingredients are non GMO, or that it is made in an FDA certified facility. The manufacturer does not offer a guarantee or return policy for this product. For all these reasons we are unable to recommend this anti fungal cream for the treatment of athlete’s foot.
