Castor oil is an anti-fungal.
Just rub it all over the infected areas. It makes your feet feel great, starts working immediately - each day keep doing it, and each day it will be better and better. I used castor oil that is cold pressed, cold processed - got it from a health food store. I find it is really good for your skin in general, makes all the cracking and dryness get better.
I tried apple-cider vinegar and tea tree oil before - but they smell terrible and can be expensive. Castor oil has like zero smell to it and I think works better. Especially works good after soaking your foot for a while in hot water to open up the pores etc.
Hi, after trying every different product on the market and every home remedy out available the only thing that works effectively to get rid of the existing infection is Mineral turps. Spray on a thin layer before putting on sock n shoes.
All the other products take way too long to work, this take about two days and it's gone. In order to inhibit picking up the fungus again apply Vaseline, preferably not with the Turps.
If you're worried about applying Turps to your skin I would be more concerned about the problems associated with long term infection and use of the creams.
Three years and umpteen remedies later... For the past 2 months I've wiped my feet 3 times a day with baby-wipes, let air dry, and put on vaseline and clean socks. (bare feet at night). I am THRILLED to say I am now itch free.
In between, I do at least a once-a-week soak in a 50% apple cider vinegar foot bath (just an inch deep, for the soles to soak). After 15 minutes I use my fingernails to scrape off the dead tissue and any heel callous. My 62 year old feet look like those of a 10 year old.
After 4 months of treatment for elementary school son, various anti-fungal creams and home remedy, including tea tree oil, neosporin, apple cider vinegar soak, betadine/hydrogen peroxide soak, vapo rub etc, none of them really worked. He saw a dermatologist today which confirmed he doesn't have athlete's foot (it's really rare for children to get athelete's foot), but a staph infection, which also caused small bumps, redness and skin peeling between toes and bottom of feet. This bacterial infection on the feet also caused id reaction (rash to whole body). Now the proper treatment is soak whole body in 1/8 chlorox bath, mupirocin ointment for feet (to treat bacterial infection), and derma smooth oil for body.
Vicks vaporub!!!! Just apply it onto the affected area every night before bed wear socks to prevent from sticking to anything else. You see results immediately and itching stops.
I have tried multiple over-the-counter and prescription ointments in the last 30 years. None could completely get rid of the problem. Then, I tried swabbing Betadine (povidone iodine) between and around my toes, 2 or 3 times a day. I work in a hospital and remember painting this on patients with the worst fungal infections on their skin. 4 weeks later, I'm now athletes foot free for the first time since Jr. High. You can buy it at a drug store for about 11 dollars a bottle, which will last many years. Don't worry about the iodine color, it washes off.
try use COMBIDERM OR CANDIBEC CREAM. they have a content a of beclometasone dipropionate and clotrimasole they also use those have eczema and espicially tinea pedis or athletes foot
I hope they help to your problem ;)
Or anything cream that they have conten of BECLOMETASONE DIPROPIONATE with CLOTRIMASOLE
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.
BEST CURE FOR ATHLETE'S FOOT!!!!!! In only 4 days!!!
After 4 long months of agony with athletes foot that spread all down the bottom of my foot. I tried almost everything on this site including ACV, Hydrogen peroxide, natural creams from the health food store, oil of oregano, vicks, salt, copper, copper socks....
Nothing really worked or only worked for a short time. Then I found the cure cedarwood insoles.
They advertise that Athlete's foot will be gone in 3-4 days and it's true! They are well worth the money at only $15 a pair. The international shipping is only $4 and they arrived in 4 days from Germany. I got them at Zederna.com I can't recommend them enough. I finally got a good night sleep instead of waking up from the itching after only wearing them for a day. My feet looked completely normal again after 4 days. They are a amazing !
Too bad I didn't take before and after pics cuz It's hard to believe how well they work and sooooo fast. They are a lot cheaper than the hundreds of dollars I've spent on all the other stuff I've tried. Don't give up you can get rid of it for good ! Try them they also have a 110% money back guarantee. Good Luck !
I find that spraying perfume or aftershave on the affected area works like a dream. It can be the cheapest perfume from the pound shop and it still works.
I do this after every shower as a preventative measure too.
There is the additional benefit of a swet smell for your feet. :-)
