I tried otc meds, which were a waste of $. Tried most of the remedies on this site and others. Waste of just got worse. Then, started soaking my foot in ocean water twice a day and put mentholatum ointment/rub on it overnight and saw results immediately. Continued this routine and 5 days later the soreness is gone, no itch or burn, no mini blisters anymore! The color went from deep red, almost purple, to light pink. Healing more each day!

My husband is diabetic and has his feet checked everytime he goes to the endocrinologist. She told him that if his toenails start to yellow (which is caused by a fungus) to put some mentholatum on it and it will go away. Not sure how often to put it on, nor if it needs to be washed off after how long of a time, but she is a doctor, so I trust her opinion.
