Tineacide Antifungal Cream

tineacide reviewTineacide antifungal cream is a doctor recommended medical strength treatment for fungal nails.  It contains active antifungal ingredients that kill the dermatophyte skin fungus that causes fungal toenail and fingernail infections. 

By softening the thicker and brittle areas of the fingers and toes, antifungal creams are able to penetrate into the infected areas to eliminate the fungus.

The active ingredient is a powerful antifungal agent called undecylenic acid.  The formulation has an emollient base that includes tea tree oil, lavender oil, urea (to help penetration) and clotrimazole.

A study of 155 patients over a nine month period conducted in association with three southern California podiatry clinics reported that “94% of the patients completing the study reported “moderate”, “significant” or “complete” resolution of their nail fungus when using Tineacide.”

We found Tineacide available online for a much lower price than other anti-fungal nail lacquers with comparable ingredients.

Application

First clean and thoroughly dry affected areas.  Then apply Tineacide antifungal cream to each affected nail twice a day, once in the morning and evening.  Its a good idea to massage the cream into the affected areas as well as into the skin surrounding the involved nail.  You can either use your fingers or a cotton swap applicator.  Rub the cream in a circular motion, paying special attention to the cuticle area.

    I just bought Tineacide cream for toenail fungus and the directions say it’s not effective on nails. What gives?

  2. Richard Alsup says:

    I LIKED WHAT I READ ONLINE CONCERNING TINEACIDE IN TREATING NAIL FUNGUS. I ORDERED THE PRODUCT ONLINE AND JUST RECEIVED IT. I AM NOW CONSIDERING THE POSSIBILITY OF RETURNING IT FOR A REFUND AFTER READING THE FOLLOWING ON THE CARTON….”THIS PRODUCT IS NOT EFFECTIVE ON THE SCALP OR NAILS”????? WHAT AM I TO THINK WHEN THE ONLINE STATEMENT OF APPLICATION DESCRIBES THE PROCESS TREATING FUNGAL NAIL?

    PLEASE ADVISE ASAP.

    Yes, the manufactures have taken steps to word things very carefully. They explain that the product is effective for the skin fungus that causes nail and foot fungus.

    “Tineacide® Antifungal Cream is clinically proven to treat and kill the skin fungus that causes nail and foot fungus.”

    Technically they are right as the fungus that causes Onychomycosis is located in the nail bed and not in the nail itself. So by applying the product around and under the nails it should reach the “skin” fungus that causes the infection under the nails.

    So the issue here is about application rather than effectiveness of the product. The disclaimer “This product is not effective on scalp or nails” follows an FDA ruling passed in 1994 about over the counter antifungal products.

    It really works!!!! Besides the confusion on directions… lol i started
    seeing results in two weeks… the quickest way is to cut toenail as short as
    possible wash with soap and hot water… dry… apply medicine… and massage
    into toenail area….. if nail is thick…. take course emery board and file as thin as
    possible as my doctor directed……. it took 3months to clear completly..

  5. Mary Glen says:

    Thanks for the comment Jewel P and very pleased that you got rid of the fungus. Yes Tinecide does work – if used correctly. If it didn’t we would have said so in our review. Great tips on how best to apply the treatment.

  6. Penny Klingler says:

    I was given the ‘polish’ type tineacide by my doctor (physician formula) He said not to use it over nail polish. If I ‘paint’ it on around the cuticles and under the nail is it alright to use nail polish? With summer approaching and opened toe shoes….

  7. Mary Glen says:

    Hi Penny, My suggestion is to follow your doctor’s advice and ask follow up questions if you are unclear. There may be specific issues to do with your case that only your doctor can address. (The trouble with nail polish is that it reduces the ability of your nail and the skin underneath the nail to “breathe.” This can create a moist environment that is more conducive to fungal growth.)

  8. Richard Bacher says:

    On Oahu, it’s advertised on national TV. but I have called or checked Walmarts, Long’s-CVS, and Walgreens. They don’t carry it, so who sells it? Why spend millions advertising nationally when the largest chains don’t carry it? Someone isn’t doing his/her job.

  9. randy says:

    i think you misread the label. it says that all anti fungals have to report on hte back of the label weather or not they are effective against nail, and head fungus. it never says they aren’t effective. if you notice the back of the label on the bottle it doesn’t specify that it is ineffective on those areas. if shat is on the instructions is true, then they would have to have it on the label.

  10. yvonne says:

    hHave been using it for 3 months. NO results. Doing it 2x a day per directions. very disappointing.

  11. Bob says:

    Having athlete’s foot for two weeks and having tried several OTC formulas I finally visited my doctor. He rcommended Tineacide and within 4 days the athlete’s foot problem had gone away. I highly recommend this product.

  12. Deandre Deal says:

    I really like the tinecide it works.
