Fungus Hack

by Mathew John (2020-03-25)

Alcohol has a faster time of evaporation than water, Fungus Hack Review and as it evaporates off the skin a cooling effect will be felt. This cooling effect may disrupt the sensation of pain one has in an inflammatory condition like arthritis. Unfortunately, this effect is short lived, and does little to address the true nature of the pain: the inflammatory reaction itself. Alcohol in large amounts can be toxic to skin, and can harm healing tissue and healthy skin alike. It can cause skin cellular damage, inflammation, and can possibly lead to skin thickening (fibrosis) if one has extended exposure. Of course, the small concentrations used in alcohol swipes for injections and in hand sanitizers are not going to cause these problems. Instead of using rubbing alcohol, try an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication like ibuprofen (if your doctor has not advised you against using it), or menthol-based topical gels and creams.
