Absorbine Jr.
Full color 10" x 13 1/2" ad for Absorbine Jr. One-Day Relief. You know that "It's dangerous to neglect Athlete's Foot" so if you "Apply it daily in the morning, once again at night. Absorbine Jr. kills all the Athlete's Foot fungi it reaches...relieves your misery fast". It also says that "America's No. 1 Relief for Athlete's Foot""effective for relief of muscular aches and pains due to overexercise, minor sunburn and for non-poisonous insect bites". It's effectiveness has been proven two different ways: clinically and laboratory so there is never any doubt that it will work.

Desenex
Full color 7" x 10 1/2" ad for their product designed to treat Athlete's Feet. There is a picture of an attractive blonde wearing only a partially-buttoned red shirt as she sits comfortably surrounded by purple fabric and an enticing darkness as she rests the fingers of one hand on her chin and stares with a come-hither look at the reader. The big part of the headline announces that "she's got everything..." followed by the fine print "...including Athlete's Foot. But Desenex will soon take care of that'.

Mennen
Black and white 10" x 13 1/2" ad for the product by Mennen called Quinsana. The ad says that you should "Check yourself for symptons of Athlete's Foot. 1) Peeling between toes, 2) Cracks between toes, 3) Soft, soggy skin and 4) Itching". This text is accomponied by a picture of a lady sitting on her bathtub working on her feet with a very concerned look on her face. The next, biggest headline says "Have You Got It?" The ad indicates that you may not realize it but you may, in fact, have Athlete's Foot. Survey's indicate that at least 70 % of U.S. adults are infected each year. They recommend that the best way to handle Athlete's Foot is a two-step process. First you put Quinsana on your feet and, second, you put Quinsana in your shoes.
