Athlete’s Foot

Athlete’s foot is a common fungal infection caused by fungi which thrive in the warm, moist areas between the toes, making it cracked, sore, and itchy with peeling areas. The infection can spread from the toes to the bottoms and sides of the feet. It is a contagious skin infection.

Home Remedies
  • Baking soda: Baking soda paste can be used between toes if the fungus is there. To make this paste, add a few drops of water to one tablespoon of baking soda. Rub it all over the irritated area, rinse off, and powder your feet with corn starch.
  • White vinegar: Soak feet in a very warm solution of one part of white vinegar to four part of water for 20-30 minutes twice a day.
  • Tea tree oil:If the toenail is infected, cut the nail as much as possible and apply pure tea tree oil. Tea tree oil has anti-fungal properties.
  • Garlic: Apply crushed raw garlic or garlic gel directly to the affected area 2 or 3 times a day for 1-2 weeks. Garlic act as a antiseptic, and anti-fungal.
  • Marigold: Apply an ointment with a 2 to 5% marigold to the affected area. Discontinue the use if there is any allergic reaction.
Do's
  • Clean and thoroughly dry your feet daily and expose them to the open air as much as possible.
  • Use cotton socks so that your feet can breath and change your socks everyday.
  • Wear well-ventilated shoes made from natural rather than synthetic materials; open-toed sandals are particularly good.
  • Use a separate towel just for drying feet, and wash the towel frequently.
  • Eat plenty of fresh vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains these food will support immune system and feed healthy bacteria.
  • Drink 8-10 glasses of water a day to assist in flushing out toxins.
  • Take vitamin C to enhance your immune system.
Don’ts
  • Avoid hot, fatty and greasy foods which can aggravate the condition.
  • Avoid fermented food and sugar.
  • Don’t share items such as towels and footwear of an infected person.
  • Don’t walk bare feet in public locker rooms.
See Doctor
  • Affected area becomes hot and red, or starts weeping.
  • Infection does not clear up after trying self-help treatment.
