Athlete's Foot Home Remedy Comments

1 Comment for the Athlete's Foot Home Remedy

I occasionally get Athlete's foot. Or, sometimes my feet will just be irritated and itchy enough to keep me from falling asleep at night. I've tried Cortizone cream, and I've tried Lamisil. Neither take away the irritation or itching. So, I looked up home remedies and saw a posting about tea tree oil. I bought some generic body lotion. I put a quarter size amount of lotion in my hand, then mixed it with about 3 drops of tea tree oil, and applied it to my foot. I did this for each foot. The relief was almost instant, and it lasted for a couple of hours. Whenever I felt the irritation again, I just applied more lotion and tea tree oil. After about 3 or 4 days, all of the irritation was gone! Tea tree oil is fairly inexpensive (I got it for $7 at my health food store) and it has many applications.

I hope this helps!

Tea Tree Oil is AMAZING. It will also clear toenail fungus, if applied morning and night. You must be consistent and patient as it takes time for the nail to grow out.
