My husband has the worst case of Athlete's Foot that I've ever seen! I've been so worried that my kids & I would get it as badly as he has it! He has it so badly, that his heel is layered harden skin 1 inch deep that he can't even feel anything! It's so bad that I've gotten holes on my sheets where his feet lay even thru his socks! >My 20 yr old's Dr. Had told her to put Vick's or any other brands of vapor rub on her feet up to 3 time a day to smother the fungus & soften her feet as well. She did it at night only & walla her issues were gone. So I tried it on my feet & hands(with nursing gloves & socks) & in just one night my issues were fixed! Now I'm putting this home remedy to the test with my husbands hands & feet! I'm pretty sure he's going to have to apply a super thick layer of vapor rub & 3 times a day! He already has to clean with vinegar & then switch to soaking in bleach/water. Gold bond powder/lysol spraying shoes, etc. I will however, get some tea tree oil/pepermint oil to aid in the process.

BE VERY WARY OF SPRAYING LYSOL DIRECTLY ON THE FEET AS IT BURNED MY TOES PRETTY BADLY

tea tree oils will stop the itching and burning but its not a forever cure. i have been using this oil for over two years and im still aving issues with my feet. i think im going to buy some vapor rub and try that. also a word from the experinced. TEA TREE OIL smells very bad. it has a very strong smell of hot mint and it lingers for many hours so if it is nice outside you get a tub put hot water in it (as hot as you can stand it without burning your feet.) use only a cap full of oil soak for 30 mins. try completely and air out your feet. it works for 24-48 hrs for a quick releif from the itching.
