      the best I found at age 72, just tell me where I can bujy it

      I am not really interested in dooyoo miles, I simply want to know why Mycil products appear to have been withdrawn. I have used them for years, have passed them onto friends and all have said they are absolutely the best on the market. Yet every chemist site is offering Scholl which is not as good or similar - same applies. If there is any way to be assured of a continue access to this product, I should like to know. I read that Reckitt Benckiser Healthcare (UK) Limited, Slough, SL1 4AQ, United Kingdom MARKET the product but their web page - while giving a glowing review of the product with no info that suggests any reason for its withdrawal, yet offers nothing that allows me to contact them to find out WHERE I can get it. My suspicion is that they are a small firm without the wherewithal to advertise big time and are being pushed out of the market which is an outrage. Anybody with any info post it on gillscott2010@gmail.com

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I will continue to use this

      My partner and I both suffer from the nightmare infection of athelete's foot which is a nasty fungal infection which can easily be spread on form one person to another. We tried Lamisil and it has worked very well for us in irradicating the problem but before tried that we also tried Mycil in a powder format.

      I believe this can also be obtained in an ointment and a spray format but we tried the powder one to begin with.

      It cost me £3.25 fromTesco and comes in a small blue plastic container with a handy little flip top lid under which is the white fine powder. There is a cute picture of a yellow bare foot on the front of the tub.

      We have to wash and dry our feet very carefully before using this and then sprinkle liberally all over the foot, paying special attention to between the toes. We also put it inside our shoes and inside our sock just to make sure we were using plenty of it and to give the powder the best possible chance of getting rid of this nasty fungal infection.

      I would say that within five to seven days our infections had completely gone. The trouble is with this infection is that once you have had it you are prone to getting it back again and it loved to live in wet, damp and most conditions.

      It kept it away for about 3 months and then slowly we could see that it was coming back to haunt us again.

      Lamisil works best but this is a cheaper alternative but I think the trick with this condition is making sure you don't put your feet in any wet damp or moist situations but this is difficult if you have sweaty feet as we do.

      Handy little package when you need it.

      After waking up in the night, with itchy feet that were doing my head in.
      I rushed to the chemist the next morning and bought some Mycil athletes foot powder. I have used this before, as atheletes foot is one of those awful things that will reoccur every now and again.

      This powder cost me £3.25 from Safeways and it comes in a dark blue plastic container with a yellow and blue label.
      It has a picture of a yellow foot on the front which says, duel action and is in an easy to use puffer pack with flip up lid.
      The words MYCIL are in blue capitals on the front of the pack.

      Like I said, I have used this before having worked at a food factory where we all had to wear wellingtons and overalls, to prevent food contamination. This wearing of wellingtons for 6 hours a day did my feet no good and I ended up with atheletes foot.

      You can buy this in an ointment or spray, but I find the powder the best one to use as it drys the skin and atheletes foot is a fungal infection which prefers damp conditions.
      You can also aim this dispencer at the parts of the feet which are difficult to get at like the inbetween of toes which is usually where the itching begins and gets worse.

      The powder contains an antifungal that kills the fungi responcible for atheletes foot and an antiseptic which helps to kill off other bacteria which are also present when there is atheletes foot.
      It is also useful for prickly heat and dhobie itch and if your feet are sore from excessive perspiration.
      It also doesn't contain any perfum, so it hasn't really got a smell to it.Which is great as the last thing you want is people knowing you have atheletes foot. Not only is it good for athletetes foot but it will also get rid of foot odour.

      It is made by Crookes healthcare
      The ingredients are Tolnaftate BP 1%, Chlorhexidine Hydrochloride BP 0.25%,Colloidal Silicon Dioxide, Purified talc, and Maise starch.
      The powder comes in a 55g pack.

      The best way to use this powder is to wash your feet and dry thoroughly, make sure you use your own towel as atheletes foot can be passed on very easily.
      Sprinkle the powder on to your toes and inbetween them, you can also put it in your socks and shoes.
      Use this in the morning and last thing at night for around seven days and the atheletes foot should clear up. Continue to use for another week to make sure the infection has gone.
      This is an external use only product and should be kept out of reach of children.

      Cool now we can all have happy feet.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I suffer from athlete’s foot occasionally even though I rarely move any faster than a brisk walk and I have found that Mycil is brilliant for getting rid of it FAST! Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection, which appears as a rash between the toes and has nothing to do with being an athlete. The thing that usually brings on my attacks is me being in a rush and not drying my feet properly when I get out of the bath. Mycil is a double action powder and contains an anti fungal to kill the bacteria together with a powerful antiseptic. The powder comes in a 50g puffer pack, which makes it very easy to apply. You just wash your feet, dry them very carefully especially between the toes and then powder liberally with Mycil. It is also advisable to dust your shoes and socks too. The instructions on the pack advise you to repeat this might and morning for a week to get rid of the infection, but I have to confess that I only do it for a couple of days and it’s gone! I do usually use Mycil as soon as I feel that first tell tale itching, which is why it’s easy to get rid of. Talking of that irritating itching that’s associated with athlete’s foot, it disappears virtually as soon as you apply the powder – ooh bliss! And my feet feel clean and fresh again. Mycil can also be used to treat prickly heat and tenderness due to excessive perspiration. The pack lasts for ages so I’m a bit out of touch as to the price these days but I think the 50g pack would be about £3 - £4 and well worth it!
