If you’re experiencing discomfort, itching, or discoloration on your feet, it’s crucial to identify the underlying cause. Fungal infections can be a common culprit, leading to various foot conditions. At Bexley Podiatry Clinic, we have revolutionized the diagnosis process with our innovative 5-Minute Fungal Test. In this article, we will explain how this cutting-edge test works and why it’s a game-changer in podiatry care.

What is the 5-Minute Fungal Test?

The 5-Minute Fungal Test is a rapid diagnostic tool used by the experienced podiatrists at Bexley Podiatry Clinic. It enables swift and accurate identification of fungal infections in the feet. Unlike traditional methods that required time-consuming laboratory analysis, this test delivers results on the spot, allowing for immediate treatment planning.

How does the test work?

The test involves a simple and painless procedure that can be performed during your regular podiatry appointment. Here’s a step-by-step breakdown of the process:

A skilled podiatrist will examine your feet, looking for signs of fungal infection such as discoloration, scaling, or thickened nails.




If necessary, the podiatrist will gently scrape the affected area to collect a small sample of skin or nail debris.




The collected sample is then placed into a specialized test cartridge, which contains reagents capable of detecting fungal elements.

The podiatrist activates the test cartridge, initiating a chemical reaction that produces visible results.

Within five minutes, the podiatrist can interpret the test results, accurately identifying the presence of fungal infection.
