Athlete's Foot Cures

Athlete's foot is very curable and often can be gotten rid of by over-the-counter medications specifically targeting the fungal infection and you have the choice between ointments, lotions, powders or sprays.

Recommended is to visit your doctor right away when you have diabetes and think you may have Athlete's foot and when you tried several OTC meds and they don't do the job and/or the condition gets worse. He may prescribe you either one of the stronger topical options, or an oral medication.

When taking oral medications, you can experience some side-effects such as gastrointestinal discomforts, a rash, and abnormal liver function. Some drug-interaction can occur if you take medications for ulcer disease or gastro-esophageal reflux disease and Warfarin.

There are also some folk remedies which you can try and don't cost much. You can soak your feet once a day for 15 to 20 minutes in a solution of 1 part white vinegar and 2 parts water until the Athlete's foot clears up. Should any irritation occur, then cut down on the frequency or use more water then vinegar.

When your toenails are infected, you can apply straight vinegar directly onto the nails. It is said that this prevents the fungus from spreading and eventually promotes a healthy nail-growth. Do this until the entire affected nail has grown out.

Another remedy is rubbing a little dab of Vicks Vaporub into the nails. This is supposed to have the same effect as the white vinegar, but has a more pleasant smell to it. Sometimes, the best and simplest solutions are right before our eyes; we are just not aware of them or don't see them.

God is aware of all we do and say and never leaves us out of His caring and loving sight. He has and offers solutions for and to everything and those also are often right before our eyes! :-)

Proverbs 5:21
For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, And He ponders all his paths.
