Foot fungus is caused by different forms of Candida, a normal organism found on human skin. Most people who get fungal infections are pre-disposed due to genetic factors or the type of skin that they have. For example, people who tend to sweat or have moisture collect on their skin may experience a higher rate of fungal infections. Although fungus is found in normal levels on cultured skin, it causes peeling and itching when normal amounts are exceeded on the human skin.
PediMD Anti-Fungal Foot Cream is optimized to control the abnormal levels of fungus flora on the skin which cause fungal infection. If used on a daily basis, high levels of fungal infection can be controlled and stablized in order to treat and prevent fungal infection.
