Superficial skin infections such as ringworm, athletes foot, jock itch and others are most often the result of a fungal infection. This is a review of DermaRite DermaFungal, a preparation that is designed to treat these infections, wherever they appear on the body, apart from the fingernails and toe nails..
Like most of its competitors – and there are dozens – the active ingredient in DermaFungal is Miconazole Nitrate 2%. This has been proven to prevent the spread of the fungus. It is also said to create a skin barrier that helps to prevent further abrasions. In addition, it is supposed to help stop the itch that make these benign infections so irritating; and deal with the horrible smell that some fungal infections cause.
Because fungus loves a warm, moist environment to thrive, DermaFungal helps to reduce moisture reaching the infected area, thus making the environment less fungus-friendly.
We were unable to find any information about any of the inactive ingredients used in the formation of this cream.
You have to apply a “liberal amount” of Dermafungal cream to the affected area immediately after washing and drying it. This is particularly important when applying the cream to skin folds. The cream must then be massaged into the skin in a circular motion until it is well absorbed. There is no need to cover it, although you can use a thin layer of cotton if you want to protect your clothes from being marked by the cream.
The Dermafungal cream is widely available in small 3.75 oz tubes. The cost per tube is in the region of $7.88.

DermaRite DermaFungal Review – Conclusion
As a non-prescription antifungal cream, DermaRite DermaFungal offers an affordable and effective option for the treatment of itchy, smelly superficial skin infections like ringworm, athletes foot and jock itch.
Like most of its competitors, its only active ingredient is Miconazole Nitrate 2%. However the lack of information about any of the inactive ingredients, such as the cream base, is disconcerting as this could result in people with particular sensitivities inadvertently using something that could have an adverse effect on them.
We were also concerned that there was no readily available information about a guarantee for the product; or about where and how it is manufactured.
That said, with only a single active ingredient, it is difficult to differentiate DermaFungal from any of the many other Miconazole Nitrate 2% -based antifungal creams on the market. Ultimately, your decision whether or not to try this one will probably be based on price.
