16 Comments for the Athlete's Foot Home Remedy

In the 50's there was an athlete's foot medication called Jim Wade's Athlete's Foot medicine. Almost all the ball players in high school had a case of AF or jock itch. The stuff worked wonders, usually one treatment, but is now discontinued. The ingredients were salicylic acid, acetone, alcohol and something else. I've made my own by dissolving 5 aspirin (the salicylic acid) in 2 T. fingernail polish remover (acetone) and 2 T. alcohol. Forget the other ingredient in the Jim Wade. Let it sit for a day or so then apply to affected areas. This clears my AF up in one treatment.

I just tried this today. It burned alright. It definitely seemed like it was doing something. I'll post later and tell you guys if it worked.

Somebody please bring back Jim Wade foot medicine. It was like a cure all for all bites(chiggers, fungus, and any skin pro lems) We used it all of my growing up. There will never be another like it. A good thing is found and newer products want to take over the market hence we lose a great product.Any of Jim Wade family left ? You would get rich with this product. If you have seen the comments for Jim Wade foot medicine then you know.

Yes, on jock itch burned like fire but I didn't mind cause I knew in hours I would be well.

Used Jim Wade on a bad case of jock itch back in the 60's when even a brief radiation dose didn't help. Fanned my tender areas with mom's cookie sheet and ran screaming around the yard for a while too! Took off a layer of skin or two but cured the carp right up! Holy Cannoli Batman!!
