This is a review of Tetterine Ointment which is manufactured by the S.S.S. Company. This product claims to relieve the painful symptoms caused by fungal infections such as athlete’s foot, ringworm and jock itch. Read on to learn whether or not this product is right for your and your symptoms.


The active ingredient in Tetterine Ointment is miconazole nitrate (2%). This is a very popular over the counter antifungal treatment. It is designed to be a topical treatment and should be applied only to the affected areas of skin.

The inactive ingredients in this product include the following:

  • Fragrance
  • Paraffin wax
  • Petrolatum
  • Starch


To use, make sure the affected area is cleaned and dried thoroughly. Then, you may spread a small amount of the ointment over the affected area and apply a thin layer. You should do this twice a day unless instructed otherwise by a doctor or health care professional.

To get the best results from this product, make sure to rub the ointment in between the toes so that you can reach all of the areas that the infection might reach. You can help alleviate fungal infections by wearing shoes that let in plenty of air and by making sure to change your socks at least once a day.

This product may take up to four weeks to alleviate the fungal infection. If you are using this product to treat jock itch, it should be used for only two weeks. If the infection persists after the allotted amount of time, consult a health care professional. Do not apply this medication more often than is prescribed as it will not alleviate symptoms any faster and you may see potential side effects.

This ointment will not be effective for infections on the nails or on the scalp.

Children must be supervised when using this product.
