Tinea treatment can come in many forms such as creams and liquids and is used to treat fungal infections of the skin and nails. Tinea can cause skin irritation such as redness, inflammation and itchiness and tends to thrive in a moist and warm environment. It can also cause toenails to become thickened, crumbly and discoloured resulting in pain and trauma. Treatment that is available aims to reduce the symptoms of tinea and limit recurrence of symptoms. At Foot Centre Group our experienced and qualified Podiatrists encourage the use of Canestan Topical Ointment as this is a broad spectrum product and doesn’t leave a resin on the surface of your toenails, which in turn excludes a warm environment developing. It can be used on the skin or the toenails depending on your individual needs and can be used continuously for many months at a time.
