Tap water iontophoresis treatment may not be effective if the
treated skin is affected by a fungal infection. The most prevalent form of fungal infection is Tinea Pedis, commonly called Athlete’s Foot.
These types of infections affect a significant amount of hyperhidrosis sufferers. Fungal infections can occur both on hands and feet. Symptoms might be apparent, but that is not always the case. Known symptoms are blisters, acute sensitivity to heat, itching, stinging, and burning sensations on the affected skin.
The easiest way to detect Athlete’s Foot is by looking for small craters in the skin of the palms, soles, and particularly between the toes.
What to do? Treat the fungal infection first.
Please consult your pharmacist or physician to find a treatment that works for you.
Once the fungal infection is completely healed, resume the treatments starting from the Initial Phase.
