ATHLETE’S FOOT Protection

ATHLETE’S FOOT Protection


Those hot, tired and sweaty feet! The average pair of those hard-working feet that carry us around so faithfully give off about 1\2 pint of perspiration daily.

Athlete’s foot fungus feeds from the dead skin cells and calluses of the feet, especially the skin between the toes.


  • Take a daily multiple vitamin B capsule. An individual who is lacking in these vitamin is more likely to get athlete’s foot
  • Wear shower shoes or foot covering in public places such as gyms or swimming pools.
  • Keep the feet clean and dry particularly between the toes. Do not share towels.
  • Change socks daily and wear only absorbent cotton ones. Wash all socks with white vinegar.
  • Air shoes after wearing and dust feet with garlic powder before putting on your socks.
  • At home expose the feet to air, wear sandals or some type of foot covering that provides ventilation as often as possible.
  • Squeeze the juice from 1 large onion and massage into the infected areas of the feet. Allow to dry and then rinse. Repeat morning and evening.
