Athlete's foot is an infection caused by direct contact with fungus. People are most susceptible when their feet are sweating or when wearing shoes that lack proper ventilation. The condition is commonly picked up by walking barefoot in locker rooms, pools and other public areas.

TINACTIN CHILL is targeted to address the needs of the first time athlete's foot sufferer, which are primarily young males ages 14 to 22. "Research shows that experiencing athlete's foot for the first time can be very frightening and intimidating for young men," said John O'Mullane, PhD., group vice president, research and development, Schering-Plough Consumer Healthcare. "Our research indicated that to reach this age group we would need to go beyond the traditional methods of communication with our customers."

To reach this audience, Schering-Plough developed an innovative Web site, www.meettheburns.com. The site features a series of "Webisodes" highlighting the fictitious Burns family and a character named "Gus" representing fungus. Each segment presents an athlete's foot treatment message in a situation comedy style that is entertaining and identifies well with teens. "Many young men are reluctant to talk about their situation when they first experience athlete's foot," O'Mullane said. "However, they often seek information on the Internet. By developing this Web site, we can reach young men and help inform them and their parents that there are effective and easy to use treatments for this common condition."
