See below. Clean with soap and water and apply a topical antifungal medication.
Antifungal Cream. Over the counter antifungal creams, powders, and sprays are very effective for athlete's foot. Recurrences are common. For people with sweaty feet, it is important to allow your shoes to completely dry between wearings. If you wear the same pair of shoes every day, consider getting two pairs and alternating to allow them to dry completely.
Is it safe to use mupirocin from time to time to get rid of bacterial/fungal infections between your toes? (It's the only thing that seems to work.)
Bacteria or Fungus. If it seems to be working then good for you. Mupirocin is an antibacterial medication. That means that is has no effect of fungal infections. You can use a topical anti fungal in conjunction with the mupirocin for optimum effect. Thank you for using Healthtap.
Pills or creams. Oral antifungals work best. Creams and lacquers do not work very well.
Nail Laser. The cutera nail laser is very effective against onychomosis or fungal nails. This with anti fungal topical such as formula 3 and steri shoe use can successfully treat your fungal nails.
Have them evaluated. There are topical and oral antifungal medications available for the treatment of nail fungus. Specialized lasers are also now available for treatment of fungal nail infections. Have your nails evaluated and get the appropriate treatment.
Fungal infection. It depends where it is located and what type of fungus is causing the infection. There are both topical and systemic medications that can be used to cure a fungal infection.
