For patients looking to avoid the possible side effects of prescription drugs treating Athlete’s foot, natural remedies can easily be used as successful alternatives. Boil neem leaves in water for ten minutes and use the cooled water as a solution to wash the feet in twice a day. To create another solution, grind garlic into a fine paste and mix into a tub of water. Use this to soak your feet for fifteen minutes. One part white vinegar can be mixed with two parts warm water to create another fifteen-minute soak for the feet. For a treatment that requires less preparation, apply apple cider vinegar or tea tree oil directly onto areas affected by Athlete’s foot.

Natural remedies like the ones listed above are great substitutes for prescription drugs treating Athlete’s foot. For information about other cures for Athlete’s foot, consult with Dr. Henry Slomowitz of Paramus and Paterson. Dr. Slomowitz will answer any of your foot and ankle questions.

Athlete’s Foot: The Sole Story

If you suffer from itching, burning, dry, and flaking feet, this may be a sign of athlete's foot. Athlete's foot, also known as tinea pedis, can be extremely contagious, and it often infects shower floors, gyms, socks and shoes, and anywhere else feet may come in contact with. It is commonly found in public changing areas and bathrooms, dormitory style living quarters, around locker rooms and public swimming pools.

Solutions to Combat Athlete’s Foot

- Hydrate your feet by using lotion
- Exfoliate
- Buff off nails
- Use of anti-fungal product
- Examine feet and visit your doctor if any suspicious blisters or cuts are present.

What is Tinea?

- Athlete’s foot is often caused by the same fungus that causes ringworm (tinea).
- Tinea can invade other parts of the body as well, if the proper thriving conditions for it are met.
- Tinea thrives in mostly dark, warm and moist environments.
- Although many people never experience athlete’s foot, around 70% of the population may suffer from tinea at some point.

athlete's footAthlete’s foot is a trouble and not a pleasant thing to bear. According to Angie Ferguson an exercise physiologist from Fort Myers, if you are a local of a warm setting like Florida, California, or Arizona to name a few, you might be more disposed to athlete’s foot more frequently than that of someone living in a somewhat cooler location.

Once you develop athlete’s foot, the fungus tends to travel from the third toe to the fourth and fifth one. Athlete’s foot is most commonly contracted on bare floors such as locker rooms, pool decks, public showers, or any sort of changing rooms. If you do become infected with the condition, it can easily be treated with over the counter medication.

Anyone is susceptible in attaining Athlete’s foot, but can be easily avoided following the right preventative care and treatment. A podiatrist like Dr. Henry Slomowitz of New Jersey will be able to determine your condition and follow the appropriate treatment options for foot care needs.
