    My name's Joe,

    Glad I was able to find a podiatry forum. Thank you to the people running the show I'm sure it's proved an incredible resource for many.

    I want to make sure it's clear I'm not here to spam. I am starting a business with a really amazing product. I've been trying to find a way to reach out to podiatrists for some opinions and experiences they've had dealing with foot fungus. I've licensed a patented technology that I believe will help a lot of people suffering from foot fungus.

    We'd like to market our product online directly to people that have Athlete's Foot. After speaking with a local podiatrist I thought it would be hugely beneficial to hear what the professionals have to say about their experiences with traditional treatments.

    I look forward to your responses I will start a new topic with some before and after pictures and treatment times that we've had.

    "I am starting a business with a really amazing product"

    ALL new products are "amazing" ....until proven otherwise.

    What exactly is your question?

    Is it not the other way round - are you not supposed to prove to us(the consumers)?

    Yes...and that thread is in the general discussion forum which nobody has responded to yet. Obviously we think it's a great product and it's proving so far to be better than any over the counter products and even prescription products that we are aware of.

    That was the reason why we thought we'd create something the consumer could buy. As far as we know there isn't yet anything on the market that has shown by science or testimonial to kill fungus associated with Athlete's Foot in one half hour treatment.

    But we also don't know if there is something that podiatrists are using that the average person doesn't know about.

    Maybe the better question would have been, if there were a product that has been shown to kill fungus associated with Athlete's Foot in one half hour treatment would you buy it? $20 would give you three treatments.

    Here is what the product does. http://www.podiatry-arena.com/podiatry-forum/showthread.php?p=179683#post179683

    Which of the fungi that can cause Athlete's foot is it effective against?
    Does it kill the spores and the hyphae?
    what is the reinfection rate?
    What is the active ingredient? Without knowing that, I couldn't prescribe it for any one.
    Does it have TGA approval?
    What is its efficacy compare to other off the shelf products?
    How has it performed in placebo testing?

    And there are single dose treatments already available for tinea between the toes!

    I have just seen that a number of my questions have been raised by others and some answered by yourself in the other link.

    Thanks Stephen, please join the discussion here http://www.podiatry-arena.com/podiatry-forum/showthread.php?p=179683#post179683

    I'd be curious to know what your thoughts are after reading the articles. And as for single dose treatment for tinea between the toes, in the above thread could you provide some links to those products please?

    I will also be updating our "science page" tonight on the site as soon as my host server gets dealt with so that the real science is represented better to the professional that might visit.

    I would suggest the following:

    1. Have a study performed and publish the results.

    2. Provide free samples to health care providers

    3. Market your product

    Good luck.


    BTW: If it kills fungus in 30 minutes why are three treatments needed?

    Please see the discussion going on in the above mentioned thread as per current studies.

    Thanks for the idea of free samples. We thought that would be a good idea as well.

    Why 3 treatments? Good question, that might be something we should add to the website.

    The three treatments were based off our in vitro research and time taken to kill all types of fungus. 60 minutes eradicated everything in the lab. 30 minutes eradicated other fungi but some growth was still present in others. We thought 3 tx was a good way to be sure we had our bases covered for the most common types of fungi associated with Athlete's Foot.

    We are finding that it may be overkill as the body also does it's part. Also, the fungus is not in an ideal growing environment 24/7 like in the lab. One treatment may be just fine but we'd recommend 3tx to ensure the results the consumer is expecting.

    As we hear more back from our consumers and see more before/after pictures we may very well just say one tx will do just fine :)
