What is Scholl Athlete’s Foot Powder?

What is athlete’s foot?
Athlete’s foot is a fungal skin infection which begins between your toes and can spread to the soles and sides of your feet. It can be itchy and uncomfortable, and can sometimes cause cracks, fluid-filled blisters, and sore patches in the skin.
How will Scholl Athlete’s Foot Powder treat my athlete’s foot?
Scholl Athlete’s Foot Powder contains the active ingredient tolnaftate, which is an antifungal medication. This means it kills the fungi which cause the athlete’s foot infection, treating the infection at the source and helping to soothe symptoms of irritation and itching caused by athlete’s foot. It can also be used in your shoes to target any remaining fungi which may be there, helping to prevent re-infection.
