Fungus foot infections

Fungus foot infections, commonly known as athlete’s foot, can be irritating and painful. The fungus, tinea pedis, thrives in warm, moist places such as the floors of locker rooms and swimming baths – even in your own bathroom. It also loves to attack feet in tight, sweaty shoes and socks. The fungus grows on the outer surface of the skin in the damp area between the toes, also the bottom and sides of the feet and can spread to your toenails. It’s important to treat the toenails at the same time to avoid reinfecting the feet. Symptoms include smelly feet and unsightly scaly, flaky and dry skin. In severe cases, fluid-filled blisters can form. Not only does it look embarrassing, the infernal itching and burning can drive you crazy.

Ten ways to treat athlete’s foot with the assistance of nature:

1. Yoghurt

Another quick remedy is plain yoghurt, which contains live acidophilus bacteria. All you need to do is dab the yoghurt on the infected area, let it dry and then rinse off. Make sure you completely dry your feet afterwards. And don’t use flavoured yoghurt.

2. White Vinegar

White vinegar is hailed as having many medicinal uses including as an effective antifungal treatment. Soak your feet twice a day in 2 parts warm water and 1 part vinegar. After 15-20 minutes, dry your feet but don’t rinse them. The acetic acid in the vinegar attacks and destroys the fungus in the toenails allowing the nails to grow healthy. As an alternative to soaking your feet, wet a Q-tip or cotton ball with vinegar and apply to the skin and nails three times a day. People have reported good results in just a matter of days.
