So, I know how to zap a verruca, how about athlete's foot?
I have loved the apple cider vinegar remedy for verrucas, but in our house we have a different problem - recurrent athlete's foot, specifically DH. He's used the usual cream/powder, but it just keeps coming back, driving him mad. He does all the clean socks/dry shoes, but can't get rid of it, and I wondered if anyone had any surefire methods of zapping it for good? TIA.
Try www.clevercultures.com they do a probiotic for athlete's foot. Works a treat, all natural and money back guarantee if it doesn't get rid of the fungus. If it's for kids, you can sprinkle the contents of the capsule on their food or in a drink. Just like turbo powered dried yoghurt! Here's a pic off their website. I trailed it for them. Honestly amazing results.
Maybe it's something to do with the acid in the wee? Either way, not sure I want DH peeing in the shower particularly... Off to Google Gentian Violet and I will check which Lamisil he's had. Thank you all.
The podiatrist told me to use tea tree. It hurt like hell but cleared after ten days. Prior to this I'd had Athletes foot for twenty years. At times it was agonising. I now use a tea tree spray every other day and it hasn't come back.
