HOW TO GET RID OF YOUR PAINFUL ATHLETE’S FOOT- HOME REMEDIES THAT WORK 100 %

Sharing is caring!

Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection that usually thrives in warm, damp places. The fungus, Tinea pedis, grows between the toes, on top of the feet, on toenails and between the fingers. White patches, scaly patches, and redness are all indicative of the fungus. Symptoms of athlete’s foot may include itching, burning, and stinging.

Athletes foot fungus frequents public showers and locker rooms, indoor swimming pools, and health clubs, and it is very contagious. Contact with shoes or socks containing the fungus, wet floors, or exercise equipment (remember it can live between fingers too) can spread it.

There are three types of athlete’s foot: moccasin-type, vesicular or blistered, and interdigital or ulcerative.

These fungi thrive in hot, tropical climates and are recent imports to North America and Europe, brought in by travellers. Wearing tight, non-breathing footwear allows the fungi to flourish and cause athlete’s foot.

You should keep your toenails the shortest length that is comfortable for you since the fungus can live under toenails. Toenails that are left long might retain moisture and provide a haven for the fungus. You shouldn’t leave sweaty socks or shoes on any longer than you have to.

If your feet tend to sweat a lot during the day, or if you are particularly active, take a fresh pair of organic cotton socks with you and change them partway through the day (cotton is more absorbent than synthetic materials and better for your feet), and don’t wear the same shoes the following day – give them time to completely dry and air out. If you can sleep barefoot with your feet out of the covers this will also help to keep them dry and make them less hospitable to the fungus.

Here are natural ways to eliminate athlete’s foot:

Garlic

It’s rich in antifungal and antibacterial properties, which makes this vegetable perfect for treating an infection like Athlete’s foot.

Collect five pods of garlic, then clean them and simply put the garlic onto the infected area. Take sterilized gauze and secure the garlic so it doesn’t move. Let it stay for 4-5 hours and then get off the tape and garlic from the place. Let the area to stabilize and then do the whole treatment again. And repeat one more time. Using this treatment 15 days will remove the infection.

Cinnamon

You should keep your toenails the shortest length that is comfortable for you since the fungus can live under toenails. Toenails that are left long might retain moisture and provide a haven for the fungus. You shouldn’t leave sweaty socks or shoes on any longer than you have to.

If your feet tend to sweat a lot during the day, or if you are particularly active, take a fresh pair of organic cotton socks with you and change them partway through the day (cotton is more absorbent than synthetic materials and better for your feet), and don’t wear the same shoes the following day – give them time to completely dry and air out. If you can sleep barefoot with your feet out of the covers this will also help to keep them dry and make them less hospitable to the fungus.

Tea

Prepare tea by boiling four tablespoons of tea leaves in the four cups of water. Once the water begins to boil allow heating for 5 minutes and then remove from flame. Let the tea steep for 20 minutes and then strain it.

Put the tea in a small basin and soak your foot in the tea water for 15 minutes. Tea leaves contain the chemical tannin which is very efficient in the killing the infection causing fungus. Tannin is also drying up the skin of the foot thus removing the breeding environment for the fungus.
