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.
'm back and writing again just to testify that after 40 years of misery, I am now nearly
***** FOUR YEARS ATHLETES FOOT FREE!*****
******** VINEGAR RULES!!! **************
I'm making spreading the word about VINEGAR instead of all the toxic anti-fungal creams and drugs my personal mission. I still fume when I think of all the money wasted, and the pain and suffering I needlessly endured
Finally The gritty hand towels I used for the ferocious itch at night is no longer in my nightstand. No more hours 'cleaning up' before a professional pedicure. No more ugly peeling feet on the beach. No more trying on only one shoe in the shoe store. LIFE IS GOOD!!!
VINEGAR is the way to go. Apple CIDER VINEGAR or WHITE VINEGAR either will do.
Some like to dilute and soak, personally I liked a full strength spray.
BUT, If for any reason you don't feel VINEGAR is working for you, no matter what cure you try, be sure to treat or disinfect ALL shoes, socks,and surfaces too. They are where the FUNGUS LIVES ON just waiting to RE-CONTAMINATE your feet.
That explains why all of the expensive creams only work for a while, The fungus is alive and well just waiting for you to run out of it.
No more drugs, chemicals or tricky concoctions keep it
*****safe and simple*******
LONG LIVE VINEGAR!!!
I used athletes foot cream and then after that dried, I rubbed baby rash ointment on them and let them soak in a warm bath of water after that dried. Then I patted them dry, and coated them in baby lotion. And keep them uncovered as much as you can to prevent respreading the fungus, unfortunately if you're a sock lover like me this means no socks :(
The only thing that removes mine was VICKS VAPORUB......
The best thing by far for athlete's foot is called Toe Juice. It is a liquid that dries fast and keeps athlete's foot far away.
I have had interdigital tinea pedis (athlete's foot between toes) for almost a year. Doctor prescribed me Lamisil 1 week (no effect), clotrimazol 6 weeks (little improvement), ciclopirox olamine 2 weeks (no effect) The only thing that have worked is 'toe socks' (they are like gloves for feet) made with silver fibers. They are a little expensive (17 dollars a pair) but in 12 days, the skin was clear and the itching and smell gone. Important: they must be made of silver fiber (it seems that silver kills the fungi) Good luck and sorry for my english.
I know its kind of gross. But when I was little I had a horrible case of athletes foot. I tried all kinds of creams and nothing worked. An elderly man told my mom to pee in dirt and make a mud pac and keep my feet submerged for about 30 minutes. Theres something about the enzymes in your pee mixed with the dirt that kills it. It worked after 1 time and it was completly gone after a couple days.
I found this on the internet and can't locate it now, but it is called GOOT and it works really well. You mix 3 tablespoons of minced garlic, coconut oil and olive oil. It hardens into a paste and you put it on morning and night. It took care of acute athlete's foot in 2 days. I will use it for 6 weeks though, as directed.
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.
First of all I would like to thank to everyone who posted the remedy for athlete’s foot using tea tree oil. I cannot express enough my gratitude for your help!!!
Just as many people I followed my New Year resolution and signed up for membership in brand new gym close to my house. The pool, sauna and Jacuzzi was the main attraction for me, but after few visits I started to experience the worse discomfort ever in my life – athlete’s foot (and I’ve had 3 major surgeries in my life!!). The itch between my toes started 10 days ago and it was so intense I was waking up at night scratching my feet. I’ve bought the supposedly best product Lamisil in a cream and spray format (close to $40.00!!). I washed my feet 5 times a day and rinsed them in pure alcohol. Applied Lamisil cream, baby powder, Lamisil spray. But nothing was helping. It felt like it was getting worse. I even took a sick leave from work!! It was so bad!!
Then 2 days ago I found this web site and based on the recommendations I immediately ran to the closest drug store and bought Tea Tree Oil. I soaked my feet in hot water diluted with Epson salt and Baking Soda for 20 minutes, dried my feet with paper towel and applied hefty amount of TEA TREE OIL. So far I’ve done 3 of those cures in 48 hours and the itch is gone!!!!!
Based on the other research I’ve done on the internet the TEA TREE OIL seems to be wonder for any fungal infection, including nail fungus and acne.
If you suffer from athlete’s foot, please give this a try. A small bottle cost about $10.00 dollars, but in my case it was worth every penny.
