Use bleach on your feet in the shower. I use it straight.
Soak your your footwear in bleach where you can, i.e., sneakers, flip-flops, etc.
Use medicated powder in your shoes. Apply the OTC stuff to your feet two - three times a day.
Keep your feet dry.[/quote]
+1 I work in a power plant. It’s hot all year round and I have to wear work boots for 16 hours a day. Sweaty feet is non avoidable fact of life. The above is what I do.
One word of caution… DO NOT USE YOUR BATH TOWEL TO DRY YOUR FEET AND THEN DRY YOUR BODY!!! You have Tinea Pedis aka Athletes foot. That fungus can eat any skin so if you dry your foot, than dry yourself it can get a stronghold on other body parts… then you will have Tinea Corpus aka “ringworm” it can spread like wildfire and trust me when I say you don’t want it.
Let your feet air dry, then apply cream. Wear socks to bed otherwise that shit can get on your sheets and end up in places you don’t want. Bleach your shower / tub or it can spread to others OR wear cheap plip flops in the shower to keep that shit off the floor. [/quote]
I thuoght it was bad to wear socks to bed because you sweat too much?
A pair of socks should not make you sweat. The point is if your feet are itching in your sleep you will rub feet together to try to make it stop. If you sleep with someone and touch your foot on them you can give themm that stuff too. All you will do is unknowingly spread that shit. The socks will contain the fungus and let the cream kill it.
Also, make sure you bleach your socks. If not, you will have the fungus in the socks and it will take forever to get rid of. Or if you knock it out and grab a non bleached pair 3 weeks from now you can give yourself the AF again.
just tips from a guy who has battled this kind of crap for 25 years. [/quote]
Cool, thanks for the tips. Out of curiosity what kind of ointment do you use? I mostly use the desenex powder because Its less messy and i was told the dryer the better, but I did start using some tinactin cream, but it seems to sting my toes a bit. (not sure if thats normal.
