I have never had athletes foot this bad before. I change my socks everyday sometimes twice depending on how much my feet sweat. I go barefoot in the house. I use gold bond medicated foot powder in my boots. I have tried half the creams that walmart sells and the only luck I ever had is Tinacton spray. How ever even that isn't helping.


any suggestions before I rip the skin off the bottoms of my feet?

If Tinactin isn't doing it, you better go see the Doc,
You are dealing with a fungus. If it isn't getting better with over the counter, it's going to need a prescription anti fungal, Doc is the only one who can prescribe.
Also, best tell the family and wear socks... You don't want to spread it to the family by walking around without socks and they might want to bleach the shower too.

Yikes. The Dr! Had enough bad news from them lately. Hoof rot was only a joke! I have to wait until June for health insurance to kick in.


No one lives with me in this 3bedroom house. Haven't had any luck keeping any one here, I turn around and they run! (lucky them)

     I have had the same issues in the past, I usually don't get that bad but I do change my socks allot.  Sometimes three times a day and wash my feet every nite.

try soaking your feet in warm tea, 5-6 bags of tea to a quart of water for 10 min, dry well then take a few drops of tea tree oil and  olive, mix in your hand and massage into affected area, hope this helps, gave me pretty fast results and relief, hope this helps

Something may be reinfecting you each time you come in contact. Do a good disinfecting of floors, bathtub, shoes, slippers, and wash all your socks in bleach. Good Luck, Rick

Pee on your feet when you are in the shower. I was told that by an old WWII vet. He used it to keep the foot rot away when everybody else was being bothered by it. I tried it one time when I had a bad case of it and it cleared it up.

Well, I hadn't heard of the "Tea" or "pee" treatment, but it's worth a try LOL!!  One thing I heard of is to soak your feet every night in Listerine 50% mixed with water.

 

I also struggle with fungal infections--especially the toenails... I heartily agree with the recommendation that you sterilize everything you walk on with some bleach.

Laugh if you will, but cattle meds work great on people for many things.  You may try the stuff below available at most any animal med supply, TSC, or local coop.  I know it's cured ringworm my kids & I got from calves years ago.

"PEE" works great on foot fungus. The cattle salves have good results also.

I was going to suggest the blue chromium for horse hoof rot, takes care of my goats bad hooves. His feet would be blue for a while though, could call him "Beast" from X-men  LOL !

LOL!!! The hair on that set of feet would be in danger of getting braided into the weave of your socks... :rolling:

I got a bad case of festering boils years ago. Mom got out the can of Watkin's Petro-Carbo Salve that she doctored the horses with and applied it liberally. Worked like a champ.

 

HOWEVER, don't do like one man I heard of.  He had a bad case of the flu, but had to doctor his pigs with an anti-biotic... Had a flash of desperation and gave himself a shot of it as well... just about killed him as it wiped out all the "good bacteria" in his intestinal tract!!!!
