3 Comments for the Athlete's Foot Home Remedy


I want to sincerely thank everyone who posted!! I tried the ACV and it worked!! I had horrible athletes foot on toes, as well as on the sides and bottom of my feet. The doctor told me to treat with Lotrimin for 2 weeks, it did nothing! I went back and the dr told me to use Lamisil, again nothing. finally the dr gave me a script for terbinafine which has MANY side effects including liver damage. After reading suggestions on this site I soaked my feet for 1 hr in 100% ACV everynight for 2 wks. I started seeing results immediately, however it tooks 2 weeks to be gone. I was left with patches of dry skin on my toes. I saw posts regarding coconut oil and I went to the health store. I purchased Tea Tree Oil Lotion and I have been applying in the morning and evening for a few days. My feet are back to normal and softer than they have ever been. THANK YOU everyone for your posts!! If there is a natural option to cure or prevent an ailment I am doing it from now on!

What is ACV? Sounds like a good treatment but why did you not say what ACV is?


ACV is Apple Cider Vinegar. I think.


This is exactly what I am going through. The terbinafine was a 14 day cycle and did nothing to cure my AF. All it did was make me very short tempered. After reading the posts on this thread, I plan to go home and urinate on my foot, after which I will soak in ASV. After that I will apply Maxim & gold bond. I figure why not - Something has to work. As it is I am changing socks 3x day. The itching is so bad I can barely stand it and this has been going on for 3 months!!
