While practicing in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Dr. William Knudson served as the Department Chair of Podiatry at Mercy Medical Center. As an experienced podiatrist, Dr. William Knudson reports that one of the most common foot problems in Cedar Rapids was fungal infection. Symptoms of a fungal infection, according to Dr. William Knudson Cedar Rapids, include dry skin, peeling, itching and redness, and some can be difficult to cure.
According to Dr. William Knudson, most fungal infections that he observed in Cedar Rapids occurred because people tend to keep their feet in shoes the vast majority of the day. The conditions inside shoes, explained Dr. William Knudson to his Cedar Rapids patients, are ideal for fungal growth. However, there are many over-the-counter powder and cream treatments available in Cedar Rapids, notes Dr. William Knudson.
When using an over the counter fungal treatment, Dr. William Knudson cautions Cedar Rapids sufferers to follow the product directions to the letter. If the condition does not improve in 2 to 4 weeks, adds Dr. William Knudson, a visit to a podiatrist should be scheduled.

While in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Dr. William Knudson consulted with many patients who suffered from dry skin, a simple condition that can cause itching and burning. Dr. William Knudson Cedar Rapids explains that these symptoms can be confused with the symptoms of a fungal infection. For dry, irritated feet, Dr. William Knudson suggested to his Cedar Rapids patients that they wash with small amounts of mild soap. Soap generally tends to dry out skin, according to Dr. William Knudson, and he recommended that his Cedar Rapids patients use it sparingly when washing dry, cracked feet. Adding moisturizing oils to the bath is a good idea, but Dr. William Knudson Cedar Rapids reminded patients to exercise caution because bath oils can make the bathtub and feet rather slippery.
