FountainRx offers a wide range of compounded and specialty medications designed to address conditions impacting the skin and feet. These include podiatry medications targeting specific types of foot infections as well as skin issues like rosacea, fungal infections, and wounds.
Many health issues of the feet are caused by underlying diseases such as diabetes. For example, people living with diabetes may tend to get fungal infections which can be treated before they spread to other parts of the body. However, individuals who are overweight, or wear thick socks and shoes frequently may also suffer from certain feet infections.
Our pharmacists and support staff are experienced in helping individuals with a wide range of feet and skin conditions and have extensive knowledge of the medications used to treat these issues. These include medications used to treat neuropathic pain, inflammation due to injury, rough/dry feet, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), nail fungus, plantar warts, Raynaud’s Phenomenon (an immune system issue where toes and fingers turn blue when exposed to cold), plantar fasciitis and burning foot syndrome.
FountainRx offers treatment for hyperkeratosis using urea to breakdown dead and hard skin. In addition, we support a range of delivery application methods specific to different types of wounds. We offer topical vasodilation medications, along with other drugs, that can be used to treat localized pain. FountainRx also specializes in providing medications to treat different types of infections of the feet. Finally, we offer a variety of compounded, topical anti-infective ointments, powders and sprays for the feet and skin.
