Hello people. I had a problem with a similar condition called Jock Itch, caused by the same fungus as athlete's foot most times, that instead of being in the feet is on the groin. This remedy worked for me on that matter, and I suppose it works for athlete's foot as well.
Quoted from John:
"I have had jock itch on and off for several years. Ive wasted a lot of money on pharmaceuticals, antifungal creams and what not. I followed the labels religiously and they still didnt work. I came close with Canestan once but the infection came back while I was using it. Dont waste your money on them. Ive also tried a lot of the remedies on this site, most of them helped but didnt cure it. The one that did was a mixture of tea tree oil and coconut oil. I cant recommend it more highly. It was amazing. Second day of use itching was gone and the rash subsiding. Third day rash almost gone, and on the fourth GONE! The mixture I use is:
3 Tablespoons of Virgin Coconut oil
20 drops of Thursday Plantation 100\\% pure Tea Tree oil
Mix it in a container, if the coconut oil is to hard, just put it in the microwave for a few seconds to get a nice thick paste consistency. Apply 1-3 times a day, I recommend 3 times a day however it is a little bit messy and if you cant then as often as you can. Trust me when I say Ive tried everything. This one was my savior.
Just to add to this dont stop using it after four days. Keep using it until you’re completely sure the infection is gone. Once the rash goes away I recommend to keep applying it once a day after a shower for at least a couple of weeks, but my god coconut oil make your skin feel so good I might keep it up forever (it smells amazing too)."
