The ointment I''ve been using is Ketazol, I had the names mixed up.
I''ve had this fungus on my feet for more than 2 years, it was smaller spots in the past, healed here and there. Now it has spread to both heels, some toe areas and under the bridge of my one foot. It is on my fingers as well but I suppose the use of the pomace stone brought it to my hands.
Do you perhaps have a name for a fungus that form these callussus etc
