How to Treat Severe Athlete’s Foot?
There are many over-the-counter (OTC) options available that can help treat this common fungal infection. They often come in the forms of creams, ointments, gels, or sprays.
Clotrimazole (Canesten®) is a popular choice for mild to moderate cases of Athlete's Foot or alipunga. But for more severe cases, a more potent active ingredient like Bifonazole.3 (CanesPro®) may be recommended. Bifonazole is a broad-spectrum antifungal agent that is absorbed into fungal cells within 20-30 minutes, and remains active for up to 120 hours, which continuously inhibits their growth and spread.4
Bifonazole (CanesPro®) is great for people with busy schedules, as it needs to be applied only once a day to the affected area. The recommended treatment period is 2-4 weeks of daily application, though individual results may vary. Bifonazole (CanesPro®) also soothes itching, which helps minimize or eliminate distractions at inconvenient times, like at work or during physical activities when used as indicated.
