Podiatry

In recent years, more and more podiatrists and physicians have depended on compounding pharmacies to help treat a variety of foot-related problems and diseases. Our compounding pharmacists can work directly with podiatrists to provide treatment options for:

  • Athlete’s Foot
  • Nail Removal
  • Heel Pain
  • Excessive Perspiration
  • Diabetic Neuropathy
  • Foot Odour
  • Foot Pain
  • Circulation Improvement
  • Nail Fungus
  • Skin Care Treatments
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Warts
  • Hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating)
  • Inflammation
  • Wound Healing
  • Calluses

We can combine several compatible medications into a single dosage form for easy administration. Also, when certain medications are used in unison, a positive effect is often achieved, improving your treatment program.

Possible dosage forms and examples include:

  • Powders: Aluminum Chlorohydrate 5%
  • Roll-on solutions: Formaldehyde 10% solution
  • Ointments: 40% urea ointment
  • Transdermal gels: Ketamine 10%, Gabapentin 6% & Clonidine 0.2% pain gel
  • Nail polish: Ketoconazole or Itraconazole 2%, Ibuprofen 2% in DMSO nail polish, Terbinafine 1.67% nail polish

If you are suffering from diabetic neuropathy we can work with your physician and provide some suggestions.
