Low grade chronic fungal infections of the feet are often mistaken for just dry skin.
You've tried Avon products, Eucerin, Vasoline Intensive Care and Aveno. Why isn't the dry skin on your feet clearing up? Here's a recent product review from one of our customers for Antifungal Healing Foot Cream:
I was so skeptical. I didn't have foot fungus, I just have really dry feet from yoga. But all the Avon products and pedicure sandings and Korean foot treatments hadn't really been helping. But this stuff ACTUALLY WORKS! I'm telling all my yoga friends about it. It smells good, too. I glob it on and then put on a pair of thick socks for the evening. By bedtime, my feet are nice and supple. And they stay that way! I try to use it every few days. Thank you!
Most cases of dry skin on the bottom of the adult foot aren’t simply dry skin. The dry skin is actually caused by a fungal organism known as tinea rubrum. But doesn’t athlete’s foot itch and have bubbles and blisters on the skin? Yes, that is true. But acute athlete’s foot is caused by another fungal organism called tinea mentagrophytes. Although closely related, t. rubrum and t. mentagrophytes present differently.
Both t. rubrum and t. mentagrophytes are members of the fungus family. They have a particular fondness for the foot simply due to the fact that inside the shoe, the environment is hot and wet. Water the fungus and keep it warm, and it’s sure to thrive. With cases of t. rubrum, the symptoms include prolific dry skin that just won’t respond to topical OTC skin lotions. Although t. rubrum infections cannot be healed, they certainly can be managed with daily application of a skin softener that includes a topical antifungal medication.
To get on top of that ‘dry skin’ on your feet be sure to;
- Rotate your shoes allowing them to dry over the course of 24 hours
- Leave your feet open to the air and UV light to inhibit fungal growth
- Use a drying agent like Onox to inhibit perspiration
- Apply a combined dry skin and antifungal cream, like Antifungal Healing Foot Cream each and every day.
