There are different types of Athlete’s Foot. More details on each one can be seen below:
Toe-Web (inter digital) Infection often begins with skin that is moist and pale white in color. There will be itching, burning and a slight odor. As the infection progresses, the skin between the toes becomes scaly, peels and even cracks. If it becomes severe, a bacterial infection is usually present, which causes further skin breakdown. Toe web infections respond well to Benzalkonium Chloride treatments. All Stops’s primary ingredient is Benzalkonium Chloride in all of our fungal products. The products penetrate the skin within 15 seconds transdermally (goes directly to the deep layers of the skin) to start working from the inside out.
Moccasin Type Infections may begin with minor irritation, dryness, itching, burning or scaly skin. It then progresses to thickened, cracked skin on the sole or heel. In severe
cases, the toenails become infected and can thicken, crumble and even fall off. Moccasin type infections are very difficult to treat, and re-infection is common if preventative measures are not taken.
Vesicular Infection usually begins with a sudden outbreak of blisters that become red and inflamed. Blisters occasionally erupt again after the initial infection. Vesicular infection is usually uncomfortable but responds easily to treatment.
