    Went through one tube in ~60 days and it temporarily cured the interdigital cracking next to little toe. Started second tube and had severe allergic reaction. Blisters and discoloration wherever I had applied Naftin gel to my toes. Stopped using a week ago. Blisters are not spreading but not going away. I'll go to urgent care.

    Naftin was prescribed for Athlete's Foot. Told to apply all over both feet nightly for 6-8 weeks. Had to stop after 5 days, account reaction. Red rash of tiny bumps initially. Now, blisters and swelling along with the red rash. Will return to the dermatologist if the blistering doesn't clear up soon.

    Suffered for years (10) with what I thought was dry skin on my feet. Tried it all. Had settled on soaking and scraping every couple of weeks. What a mess. Went to the podiatrist for a case of plantar fasisitits last year. She took one look at my feed, said you got athlete's foot. Prescribed NAFTIN for a one month treatment. Results were instantaneous. Had new feet in within couple of days. $20 ... Show Full Comment
