It is therefore recommended that drug-loaded microcapsules can be applied onto socks or even bandages, which will allow the continuous release of antifungal drugs in a controlled manner under pressure. Patients with tinea pedis or other fungal infections can undergo treatment merely by the simple action of putting on socks or wrapping a bandage around the affected body area. , 2012b). , 2015). technology. This method is cost-effective and the microencapsulated product can be stored in dry conditions, which makes it easier for storage.

3 Antiseptic treatment for foot wounds with Piper betel extract As socks come into contact with the human skin when they are extensively wetted by sweat for a long period of time, this may result in skin infections and discomfort to the wearer. Moreover, if there is a wound on the foot, the wound may be further infected and difficult to heal. Therefore an eco-friendly and natural antimicrobial finish has been developed for textile fabric by using the extracts of Piper betel Linn (Piperaceae) (Ramya and Maheshwari, 2015).

2011) designed and developed hygienic socks for daily pharmacological treatment of tinea pedis (also known as athlete’s foot) by using microencapsulation. Antifungal agents were stored in microcapsules and released onto the skin during the daily wear of hygienic socks. Due to the controlled release of antifungal agents, the efficiency of curing tinea pedis or other skin infections can thus be significantly enhanced. Coupled with the use of textile material that have properties of moisture management as well as specific sock designs (as shown in Fig.
