Pharmaceutical compounds can be tailored to meet the unique needs of patients, either by creating new formulations based on professional expertise or by utilizing established formulas. Topical medications can be enhanced with penetrant enhancers to improve absorption, while combinations of compatible medications can be created for simplified administration. Additionally, combining specific medications can lead to a synergistic effect, resulting in a more effective treatment.
Fungal Infections : Conditions like athlete's foot or toenail fungus can be treated with antifungal medications. Compounded antifungal creams or solutions may be customized to suit the specific needs of the patient.
Plantar Fasciitis : This is a condition characterized by inflammation of the plantar fascia, causing heel pain. Compounded topical creams or gels containing anti-inflammatory medications can be used to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation.
