Tinactine = tolnaftate? Not clotrimitazole (Lotrimin)?

I assume cream is better than spray?

Apply it where? Bottoms of feet only?

Apply how often?

I'll work on getting pictures.

It's in the foot care section usually.... this stuff http://www.tinactin.com/
tolnaftate version yes... you can use the generic versions but make sure it's the same ingredient. It's the antifungal you want.

Cream, the spray would get everywhere and is powdery not to mention the hissing would probably scare the scrap out of her LOL. Put it on twice a day if possible, once if that's all you can do. To apply, just put a little on your finger and wipe the affected areas of the feet (don't need to slather it on). Obviously if her feet are dirty clean em first. Rub it in if she lets you .

Fungal infections can be tough, so I'd give it two weeks. At least the tinactin is cheap!

Out of curiosity, what pain med did they give?

Tolfanate is available in a liquid spray as well as the powder spray, and Walmart has a Great Value version of the spray liquid that is really, really cheap.

Just a question, since I don't have guinea pigs. Would some sort of diaper rash cream be better as an occlusive against urine scalding on the feet?
