A red, itchy, scaly rash can be unsightly and drive you crazy. But most fungal infections aren’t dangerous, and you can usually treat them easily with creams. If you tend to get repeated fungal infections, turning to over-the-counter creams and ointments will likely not provide you with effective relief. Our podiatrists at Beyond Podiatry are trained to address a variety of foot infections. If you need help with a fungus, we can provide you with a proper diagnosis and the anti-fungal medication you need to feel better.
What Are Fungal Infections?
Fungal skin infections and fungal nail infections can be uncomfortable and itchy, but they are not usually serious. Fungal infections like athlete’s foot, ringworm, and jock itch are easy to pick up and transmit to others. These infections are typically caused by walking barefoot in damp areas such as around a pool or in a public shower. When these infections occur, they can prove difficult to treat with standard medication and may sometimes require professional help.
How Do Anti-fungal Medications Work?
Most anti-fungal medications work by damaging the cell wall of the fungus, which causes the fungal cell to die. There are several types of these medicines in the form of creams, sprays, medicines to take by mouth, and injections. If you have any infections within your body, they work to ease symptoms and bring back your wellness. At Beyond Podiatry, we offer medications to get you feeling back to your most amazing self.
