Summer Feet

With all the humidity, swimming pools, etc, it’s prime time for athlete’s foot.

There are several forms – one the gunky stuff between the toes and also itchy, pinkish, scaley stuff on the bottom of the feet in a "moccasin" distribution. It can show up on the bottom of the feet as itchy small blisters too. The only really effective antifungal at the drugstore is Lamisil cream. The others inhibit the fungus but don’t kill it. You want to treat it so it doesn’t attack your toenails (that’s what causes the dreaded toenail fungus).

See Dr. Irwin’s new article on the pros and cons of Latisse.  Does it really work?  Is is safe? and more.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
