Are you looking for a treatment for tinea pedis? Also known as athlete’s foot. Some of the most common treatments are available over the counter and can also be the most effective. You can, of course, see your doctor, but you will probably end up paying a premium for a prescription cream that is not going to work any faster or any better than an over the counter remedy.
First of all, most of us are conditioned from a very early age that when we have any kind of health problem that we need to go to our doctor. This can be problematic, because even if one has adequate health coverage, they can find that waits are long to visit a physician.
A lot of the time, you can easily obtain an effective remedy on your own, rather than seeing a doctor and getting some kind of prescription medication. The number one question you probably have is about whether or not the remedy that you obtain works or not. Do yourself a favor and read, where possible, as much information as you can regarding any product or treatment that you are thinking about trying.
From there, you should be able to choose something suitable that will also be effective. The best thing you can read would be reviews of other people that have tried a product and had success with it. Not everyone who tries a product leaves a review, but many companies offer people the option, and if a person is very happy with that product, they will be more likely to leave a testimonial.
That being said, an effective treatment for tinea pedis can be very inexpensive when compared to prescription treatments. The best way to deal with this fungus is to eradicate it with a treatment, and then prevent it from returning by keeping your feet clean and dry, washing your feet very thoroughly twice daily and only wearing breathable cotton socks once you have cleaned your feet. If your shoes are wet, change them, and try to avoid any kind of material that does not allow air circulation, such as plastic or man made materials.
