2 Comments for the Athlete's Foot Home Remedy


I had moccasin type athlete’s foot, in which the sole of the foot is affected. The thick skin on the sole makes treating this type of athlete’s foot very difficult.

After trying several commercial treatments I decided to try the following approach. First, after showering when the skin on the foot is softer, I used a pumice stone to remove dead skin. Next I soaked my foot in apple cider vinegar for 10-15 minutes, then dried my foot with rough towel to further exfoliate the skin. Finally I applied a 50/50 mixture of neem oil and tamanu oil and put on a pair of clean, cotton socks.
After doing this twice a day for about 1 month my athlete’s foot is gone. It is important to practice very good hygiene during this process. Clean your tub/shower, pumice stone, rough towel, and socks thoroughly after using to avoid re-infection and wash your hands after applying the oil.

It takes a little time and effort to get results with this treatment, but it works.

with your fungus did you have a dis coloring of the feet. like my feet are darker, and i have spots inside my skin but it doesnt hurt, burn or itch...its just plain ugly and its ebarassing... how can i get my feet back to its natural color. it alsmost looks like diabetes but i dont have it.. I am so confused


The skin on the sole of my foot was thicker and a darker red where the infection was. As the fungus died off and the skin became healthy it lost that red color and looked more normal. Still fungus free!! Best of luck to you!
