254 Home Remedies for Athlete's Foot


I tried most of the remedies, and they worked for a while, but the condition always returned. Most fungicides are made with copper salts, so I made a copper toe ring. I wear it all the time and have been symptom free for 20 years, except the time I lost it once and the itching came back. The ring has to fit very closely, so it has to be custom made.

The best way I have found to make one is to tie a small copper wire (14 to 24 ga) snugly around the toe with a simple overhand knot. Slip it off carefully trying not to stretch it much larger and solder the ring together. Cut and file off the excess, then work the ring back on. It will not be easy to get it on, but once you do you can forget it.

If your toe turns green, then you really needed to wear some copper because your body chemistry was deficient in copper too.


Okay, this cure worked for me in about a week - a week and a half.

First: Afetr every bath/shower/swim ALWAYS dry your feet. The fungus won't feed on it then.
Second: Soak your feet 1-2 times a week in about 2 cups of water and 2 cups of apple cider vinegar
Third: Grab a cotton ball/a tissue soaked in ACV and leave it rested on the area for a good 45 minutes.

Lastly: File your area daily with a foot file then apply tea tree oil.

Hope it works for you! worked fast for me and it still hasnt come back.


Long time ago the itching was making me nuts, and I had no ointment or way to get to the store. I sprayed the old fashioned (not perfumed) lysol between my toes. It burned like an S.O.B.(!!!!) but the fungus was GONE. I can't remember if I rinsed it, but probably. It hurt, but sure was effective.


comet! sounds pretty wierd but it worked for me! everyday in the shower i got a little bit of commet bathroom cleaner and put it on the infected area and left it for about a minute. after about a week or two i could see it heeling. then i started putting athletes foot powder in my shoes and socks and i was cured!


I've tried all the home remedies with no success. I had SEVERE athlete's foot- the kind that wakes you up in the middle of the night. The thing that finally got rid of it was Soft Scrub with Bleach. I scrubbed my tub every day and I rubbed it directly on my feet. Within a couple of days, I noticed my athlete's foot clearing up. Within a month it had completed cleared up. I still scrub my tub once a week with Soft Scrub and the athlete's foot hasn't returned in a year.


Hey, I actually got this remedy out of a medical book.

-Try to keep your feet as dry as possible during the day
-if your socks or shoes get wet, replace them.
- soak your feet with 20 drops of teatree oil and water 2-3 times a day.
-When wearing shoes, brush your feet or the inside of yours shoes with garlic powder.
-eat lots of garlic or take garlic capsules

Hope this helps! also if you have yellowing toenails, this remedy also is good.

it wooks great relives itching and heals over time!


use vicks vaporub on your fungus infected toenails,apply at nite and put on a pair of socks(to prevent staining sheets) the fungus will go away after about a month.


I just wanted to share a remedy for athletes foot that I used on my daughter. The soles of her foot were covered in the fungus and I put a slice of garlic & a bandaid on the affected areas overnight for 6 weeks. It cleared up and never came back !!!


Use nail polish remover in the affected area (between your toes). It stops the itching and burning, gets rid of the redness, and the athlete's foot will be gone in 1-3 days. I found this out accidentally when I had athlete's foot, and was removing the polish from my toenails. I now use this at the first sign of athlete's foot and it really works!
