I cured my terrible strain of athlete's foot within 3 weeks after trying unsuccessfully meds (lamisil), store bought creams, vinegar, bleach, epsom salt and rubbing alcohol. What finally worked was opening the blisters while squeezing them as I soaked my toes in proxide. I could see the peroxide working as it bubbled while it attacked the liquid oosing out of the blisters. I combined this treatment with applying a product from the natural food store called Fungal Free Nails. It has the same ingredients as Listerine and Vics plus tea tree oil. Internally I cut out sugar, took one teaspoon of garlic every night for about a week, took a drop of oregano oil in the morning, acidophilus at lunch and 14 drops of grapefruit seed extract after dinner.

First of all I would like to say the Athlete's Foot I had was the worst I have ever seen on anyone. The first night it sprung up, it was not visible. But it was so bad, I didn't sleep but an hour and a half that night. It felt like my whole feet (and hands were covered with it too!) we covered with fire-ant bites. If I tried to relax, the throbbing kept me up. So I tried a few of the methods from this website from the first page, vinegar, hot water/cold water technique, probiotic cultures, and though the hot water offered temporary relief, soon after my BRUTAL itch returned. I also used a generic brand of Tinactin and Lotrimin foot powder. They may have been working, but nothing fast enough to squelch the tenacious burning. Then on the third day, after evening service at church I asked a nurse friend what I could do about it. She recommended BLEACH. Undiluted if directly applied to the skin, but rinse off after a minute or so, or if you are going to soak with bleach, be sure it is diluted to about a 10:1 proportion. So I tried that. You feel an immediate warmth afterward when you use bleach. I repeated that process twice before bed and in the following morning. The next morning what was agonizing me so finally became visible, as I believe it was deeply rooted under layers of my skin. The palms of my hands and soles of my feet were NEARLY COMPLETELY COVERED with spots, dots, and blisters. However within less than 24 hours, while I was at work the next day, I felt the burning begin to subside. So I kept repeating bleach (I also afterward used Lotrimin once my feet were dry). The day after - no burning - discomfort 95% gone.

So BLEACH did it for me. And let me stress again I had the worst and most vicious strain I have ever seen. I used concentrated bleach. You can use Lotrimin foot powder too, but bleach was what really carried the punch. And I will stress that again!



what realy worked was to use flower of sulphur powder. Mix the powdered sulphur with vaseline making a paste. Apply a liberal coating to the affected area once a day (at night when you sleep) wearing a clean white cotton sock (s). The infection cleared up in one week.


When I was in college I was affected by athletes foot a few times over the course of 3 years, and I found a cure that works for me.

Now bare with me, it may seem gross.

What I would do.was drink a 6pack and hope in the shower and urinate on the infeceted area. So if youre looking for an easy home remedy urinate in a cup and pour it on the infected areas while in the shower, then let the water wash it away. (will typically take 2-3 applications)

Good luck.


I have had this problem on one foot for years. I decided to try something a bit crazy - when i was a young woman in the 1970's, we did not have access to fast, OTC yeast infection medications. Yeast infections are apparently fungal. There was a trick learned from other women - to buy yeast with active cultures and apply it to the affected area. It always made the itching go away quickly. I decided to try putting yogurt on my foot. To my complete amazement, i have been free of itching and burning for weeks! I put it on in the bathtub and left it on for about 10 minutes (even though the relief was instanteous). I did this a couple of times over about a week. I have not used one expensive cream or power in weeks. I would be interested in finding out if this worked for others.


I tried everything and finally a very old doctor told me to use Absorbine Jr, it was a miracle.

I suffered for almost a year, I showed the doctor and he got concerned. He put me on Antibiotics and every ointment on the planet it seemed. Long story short, nothing worked until I used really hot water from my shower head aimed at the infected area for as long as I could take it, then immediately turned the water cold. I'm not sure why but it killed the infection almost right away. One of my single best accomplishments. God Bless, good luck.


I had this flare up on my foot periodically for years. It was slight rash bumps around the outer edge of my foot. Recently I got a really big blister on top of my foot and then they started popping up around my foot. I use Tinactin, which did help but, they still popped up. I read in the internet to use diaper rash creme. I have spray my shoes with Lysol. I got extra strength Butt Paste and with in 48 hrs my foot is just about clear.
