Fungus Eliminator

When the foot is soaked, Fungus Eliminator Review especially in warm soapy water, the oils in the skin glands are removed, and as the foot dries from the soaking release of natural perspiration is not necessary as the heat transfer has already occurred in the water. The end result is a foot that becomes drier coming out of a soak than going in. Moisturizing the feet should involve quality skin moisturizers that work with the natural oils and moisture of the feet, and not a tub of water. People have been rubbing all sorts of chemicals on their feet since the dawn of time. Among these chemicals are solutions and tonics containing different herbs and distilled alcohol. In the last century, the ready availability of isopropyl alcohol in the pharmacy has served as a replacement for the tonics of old in the home-based treatment of foot aches and pains. There is only one problem: alcohol has little role in reducing inflammation and can actually be harmful to the skin. Alcohol has a faster time of evaporation than water, and as it evaporates off the skin a cooling effect will be felt. This cooling effect may disrupt the sensation of pain one has in an inflammatory condition like arthritis. Unfortunately, this effect is short lived, and does little to address the true nature of the pain: the inflammatory reaction itself. Alcohol in large amounts can be toxic to skin, and can harm healing tissue and healthy skin alike. It can cause skin cellular damage, inflammation, and can possibly lead to skin thickening (fibrosis) if one has extended exposure. Of course, the small concentrations used in alcohol swipes for injections and in hand sanitizers are not going to cause these problems. Instead of using rubbing alcohol, try an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication like ibuprofen (if your doctor has not advised you against using it), or menthol-based topical gels and creams.
