Foot having massage

Overview

Athlete's foot is the most common fungal infection of the skin, characterized by fungal growth on the skin of the foot and occasionally on the toenails. Often, an itchy red rash develops in the spaces between the toes. As well as being itchy, the skin in the affected area may be scaly, flaky and dry. The medical name for athlete’s foot is tinea pedis. [divider]...

    Hello,

    I am very sorry for the late reply.

    I just used regular peroxide that I pick up at the local drug store. It is a 3% solution according to the label (which seems to be the normal regular on the shelf peroxide solution)

    (LABEL:

    Hydrogen Peroxide USP
    3% Solution
    10-Volume
    Topical Antiseptic for Minor Wounds

    Note,
    Since I wrote my comment on January 7th 2012, I have had no sings of Athlete’s Foot whatsoever.

    Andre, did you use 35% food grade or regular store bought peroxide?

  8. francoise Schmitt / February 5, 2012, 10:09 am

    A very easy way to get ride of that : Put some boric acid (powder- just about 3gr) in your shoes and keep the shoes n the whole day… Finished !

    Hello, I have been a member for about 5 minutes now (yes, minutes). I came straight to Athlete’s Foot because I HAD the problem for quite some time. I decided to try something myself (that is to say NOT on the suggestion of someone else) and it worked. I had the problem between the two smallest toes on my right foot, the smallest toe itself being very affected. I have no idea how I got it, but there it was. I had tried different things on my own, but without much success. Finaly I had some success: a full week with no itch or anything, plus a improvement of the skin. Then with a small change on the treatment, I had a good month with no symptoms and even more improvement of the affected area. Finaly, it has been AT KLEAST six months now and the affected area has no sign that there was ever anything wrong.

    My treatment was very simple and inexpensive: I put my foot inside a plastic bag, poured Hydrogen peroxide into the bag (enough to guarantee the effected area would be perfectly submerged). I used an elastic around the top of the bag to seal it to my leg and put a sock on so I could walk around.

    I left this on a good hour while watching a movie. That’s it. The main problem was the elastic that would reduce some circulation to my foot. I left it on a good hour because the first treatment was just one or two minutes (gave me a week of relief). The second treatment was about ten – fifteen minutes (gave me a month of relief). After leaving it at least a full hour, it seems to be cured.

    Note: I used Isopropyl rubbing alcohol to dry up the area after treatment.

    In case someone else tries this, the itch became quite intense the first ten minutes because the affected area was very red. Then it went away slowly and eventualy disappeared DURING the treatment.

    Hope this works for you if ever you decide to try it.

    P.S. for those of you that have never touched Hydrogen Peroxyde and find the name scary, it typicaly will breakdown and turn into water and oxigen during treatment. I have used it in my aquariums to treat certain types of alga (ex. brown bush alga) with no ill effects to the fish, as long as you resepct treatment methods.

    It is also commenly used to treat and sterilize open wounds. How effective it is for that I don’t know, but I am sure it stings ;)

    Thankyou,

    André
