This condition may last a short time or it may become chronic, and sometimes recurrence may occur. Three clinical forms are known:
Interdigital tinea pedis (athlete’s foot)
Hyperkeratotic (moccasin type) tinea pedis
Vesicular (vesiculobullous/inflammatory) tinea pedis
Using the Muvu sock powered by Regenactiv, a 30-day follow-up of a vesicular tinea pedis was performed to analyze the result of applying the Milos sock as a complementary treatment.
A 42-year-old woman with an infection in her foot by vesicular tinea pedis. She is recommended to use the Milos sock as an alternative treatment to previously used therapies. The treatment and its evaluation are performed during one month.
The first result noticed is the increased comfort, followed by an improvement of skin appearance and texture, which becomes smoother and softer.
At 10 days from treatment onset, the patient is called for a new visit, showing an improvement of lesions together with an increase in her sense of well-being.
At 15 days, the main symptoms of tinea pedis (itching and dry skin) disappear.
At 31 days, the treatment is finished, considering the case cured.
