The effectiveness of tap water iontophoresis treatment may be compromised if the treated skin is affected by a fungal infection. Many people with hyperhidrosis experience these types of infections without any visible signs.
Fungal infections can occur on both the hands and feet and manifest with symptoms such as blisters, increased sensitivity to heat, itching, stinging, and burning sensations on the affected skin.
A common example of a fungal infection is Athlete's Foot, characterized by crater-like skin lesions and an unpleasant odor, especially between the toes or fingers.
If you have a fungal infection, it is important to take appropriate action. You can consult your pharmacist or physician to find a suitable treatment that works for you, like an over-the-counter antifungal cream.
Treating the fungal infection will allow the tap water iontophoresis treatment to reach its full efficiency. Once the fungal infection has completely healed, you can resume your Dermadry treatments, starting from the Initial Phase.
