What is DG Health Athlete’s Foot Cream?
Athlete’s foot is a contagious fungal infection that results in a burning and itchy scaly rash. Dollar General Health Athlete’s Foot Cream claims to relieve as well as prevent the symptoms associated with the fungal infection – such as itching and burning. In the following review, we shall assess all aspects of the product to help you – the customer- make an informed purchasing decision.
This products key active ingredient is Tolnaftate, a synthetic antifungal agent that has been known to alleviate itchy and burning fungal infections. However, this substance has been known to have negative side effects such as itching, dryness, and peeling. Unfortunately, the product website is vague as to what other ingredients are included in the formula. This is concerning as we do not know what other substances are included which may range from fillers to binders to preservatives. Furthermore, there is no mention of the manufacturing facility being GMP certified, which may imply a lack of quality consideration for this product.
Dollar General Health Athlete’s Foot Cream uses a 1% concentration of Tolnaftate in its formula – which is the standard concentration for this substance. The manufacturer offers no directions as to how to best to use this product or the safety concerns associated with the ingredient. This is concerning and showcases a lack of consideration for the consumer. If you are willing to take a chance and purchase this product, we suggest doing a patch test before applying to the affected area to ensure you do not experience adverse and aggravated side effects.
What is the Cost?
Customers can purchase a 28g (1oz) tube of athlete’s foot cream directly from the Dollar General website. You can expect to pay $3.00 per unit. There is no indication of the lifespan of this product, or if multiple tubes will need to be bought to get rid of a present fungal infection. There is no package offers available, although, there is a discount of 5% on offer for those willing to sign up for a subscription service. However, these automatic shipments can become costly and difficult to cancel, with no guarantee that the discount will apply per recurring order. While the cheap price may seem appealing, it may hint that even cheaper and low-quality ingredients were used to produce the product.
Dollar General health offers a 30-day manufacturer guarantee for their product, which showcases some level of confidence in the efficacy of the product. However, this deal only applies to products bought directly from the manufacturer’s website. It does not state if open or used products are eligible for this policy, which means that testing this product could prevent you from receiving a refund. Furthermore, there are no customer reviews available on the website or on third-party sites which are concerning. We cannot confidently vouch if this product is effective or not.
Our Final Review of DG Health Athlete’s Foot Cream
Dollar General Health Athlete’s Foot Cream has an accurately dosed formula as well as a key fungal-fighting ingredient that is known to relieve the symptoms associated with athlete’s foot. The cheap price and lack of GMP certification may imply that quality ingredients and processes were not a priority during manufacture. There is a guarantee available, but it is uncertain if this applies to products that have been tested by the customer. For all of these reasons, as well as a lack of customer reviews, we cannot recommend this product as a wise purchase choice.
