Today we review a product called simply Phytozine, which its manufacturer, Sisquoc Healthcare, says is the fastest acting ringworm treatment. It has been formulated specifically to erode all the 119 strains of the Trichophyton fungi which cause ringworm, or Tinea as it is known medically, and is therefore not a broad-spectrum treatment but a tailored one.
Ringworm is highly contagious and can even be contacted from pets. Left untreated, it can cause scarring and secondary bacterial infections. It is uncomfortable as it itches so much, and the appearance can cause embarrassment to sufferers. It is important to treat not only the skin but linen, contact surfaces and grooming agents such as brushes as well.

The active ingredients is Tolnaftate and all the others are inactive. Tolnaftate is an antifungal that fights fungal infections. It is specifically used to treat ringworm (tinea corporis), athlete’s foot (tinea pedis), jock itch (tinea cruris). It is also combined with other antifungals to fight nail, scalp and palm fungal infections as well. It works by stopping the growth of the fungus and depriving it of growth conditions. Aloe is a powerful anti inflammatory that soothes the skin and the various carrier oils, such as tea tree, jasmine, lavender and clove allow the tolnaftate to penetrate far below the epidermis, while having powerful antioxidant and antifungal properties in their own right.
The 1% strength is the recommended concentration for skin conditions. After washing and drying the skin affected thoroughly, apply twice a day. Continue doing so for two weeks after the ringworm appearance has vanished as the fungus is extremely stubborn.
Possible Side Effects
Allergic reactions such as hives, rashes and itching are possible with tolnaftate. They are rare. Consult a doctor if you are taking prescription medications although interactions should be very rare.

Our Conclusive Review about Phytozine
Phytozine is FDA-approved and formulated to start working on contact. It is a one-step treatment that is easy to use. It is mostly safe, but not without hazards although this is very rare.
The item is not very popular or seemingly widely used as evidenced by the lack of consumer feedback and was not stocked by Amazon at the time of writing this review. This could be because of the price, which is high compared to other treatments. In our research we have definitely come across other products containing strong, well-synthesized ingredients for a fraction of the price.
