Your Tinea Treatment Program

During your consultation we examine your skin but also take into account your current state of health, plus your diet and lifestyle habits. From the information gathered from your Health Appraisal Questionnaire and your consultation, a Treatment Program for your individual needs is developed.

Once you have received your Scabies Treatment Program you will be given access to the Healthy Skin Clinic Membership Site. Your Skin Treatment Program will indicate which resources and information pages your practitioner would like you to look at. For example, certain foods to avoid or increase, things to help your skin, general health and tinea specific information. This fantastic resource assists you with your tinea treatment and gives you a better understanding of why you have the skin disorder, how to treat and how to avoid tinea in the future.

Access to this great resource is for clients only and is provided free of charge following your skin consultation.

Testing for Specific Triggers of Tinea

Your skin care specialist may recommend that you have some tests done. Tests provide the practitioner with specific information about you that can make your treatment more specific, speed up your skin healing and help prevent a repeat event.

We recommend a test called Oligoscan. Oligoscan will identify heavy metals and nutrient imbalances that are commonly found with tinea.  For clients having a consultation online, your practitioner can order similar tests that are done Australia wide with a Functional Pathology.
