9 Comments for the Athlete's Foot Home Remedy

Erika B.

My 3 year old has Athele's Foot from wanting to walk around barefoot everywhere. I hated the idea of using those strong harsh OTC creams on her, so I looked around for home remedies. She was crying because it hurt so bad, so I combined a few of the home remedies and this is what is working for her:

-foot soak with 8 cups warm water and 1 cup Epsom salt
-rinse
-foot soak with 8 cups lukewarm water and 2 cups vinegar for 10 minutes
-rinse
-a quarter-sized amount of Cortisone 10, rubbed in well
-light dusting of baking soda

I sprayed her sneakers with Lysol and set them up to dry. In the morning, I plan on rinsing her feet with vinegar and water, rubbing more Cortisone cream on her toes and applying more backing soda before putting her socks and shoes on.

Cortizone cream is a steroid. It is what heals the fungus. Used also for ezema. My doctor told me if used to much it would make my daughters skin thin on her face. So this is not a totally home remedy.

Cortisone, and it's immune suppressing properties actually help fungus grow. *facepalm*

Ahhh I'm sorry, i spend probably close to 1500 euros or more over the last 25 years on creams and talcs,and 'doctors' A tube of antifungal cream close to 14 bucks, it just makes me so incredibly angry to see someone else promote it. Cause it doesn't cure, and it's not supposed to cure because then they lose they're income, and this is how the pharmacuetical industry is run 'MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY MONEY'

The cortisone and lysol etc. is overkill. Lets ' KISS' the cure. keep it safe and simple, especially for little ones.

Just a strong-ish vinegar solution on her feet, in her shoes and as a soak for socks will do the trick. Also be sure to keep bathroom and shower surfaces clean so that she doesn't catch it again
