Tapeing foot has started a fungus!

Posted by JoAnn Fl on 9/27/01 at 13:25 (061745)

If you have had your foot taped by your Dr. Did it give you a fungus under the tape? I have it on both sides of my foot. Do I need to stop taping and maybe try a arch brace?
Have you ever tried a arch brace.....does it help, and can it replace the tapeing?

Are you sure it is a fungus? Most pre- tape sprays used under the tape have antifungal qualities. Contact dermatitis and allergic dermatitis are much more common reactions to the tape adhesive.
