The purpose of Dead Sea Minerals is to soften, treat and patch fungus. They also immediately relieve skin irritation. The cream works against fungus on the skin and between the claws. The natural body heat enables the cream to penetrate the skin, which identifies the wounded area and nourishes it. The size of the wound indicates the amount of cream to be applied as the absorption can be seen. After one application, a significant improvement can be observed in minutes. With most fungae, the affected skin returns to normal after 3 applications in a 24 hour period. The itching disappears immediately after the first application.
