What is a quick way to treat tinea pedis, or eczema..not sure what I have on my feet. I was given ointment.?

Anything else I can do besides the cream? I changed socks and shoes already.


Yes stress is the root cause of eczema in many cases.

I have been helping a friend get rid of his psoriasis’ on his skin, it covers about 2 square feet of his arms and hands.

He has been spraying on 2.5 PH water for about a month now, and it is working. He is also drinking 9.5 PH water. His wife has MS, and is also drinking the 9.5 PH alkaline water, and is doing much better.

You can get free alkaline water - place a wanted add on http://craigslist.com

Here is a demo video to watch for the eczema cure as seen in Japan. Sorry but the hospitals in the United States and Europe are not this advanced at this time.


Allergies to food include shellfish, garlic, and others. Stop eating things like cheese, then milk products, then anything brewed (beer, yogurt, breads made with yeast). When it goes away, then you have some idea of what you should stop eating.

Or use the process developed in Japan, and eat what you want to.

Exposure to UV light can also help many who have eczema. Yes walking out in the sunshine, without UV protecting sunblock on will expose your skin condition to UV light.

Good Luck !  (+ info)

Is it true that human urine is a cure for Tinea Pedis?

I belive Madonna aluded to this on the Lettreman show.

Proponents of urine therapy claim that urine is very effective at killing athlete's foot. Urea, the "active ingredient" in urine, is already used in many drugs and treatments made by pharmaceutical companies to treat athlete's foot. This controversial treatment method recommends urinating on the infected area once a day in the shower. According to supporters, urine therapy not only kills existing fungi, it prevents new fungi from growing in the infected area. However, at least one biochemist states that urea is only used to soften the outer layers of skin so that antifungal drugs can reach fungi below the surface, and that the urea must be concentrated and applied for a long period of time in order to be effective [1]. The existence of prescription creams such as Vanamide ® which are indicated for dry or rough skin and consist of up to 40% urea supports this claim. Thus, it is unlikely that urinating on one's feet in the shower will significantly improve a case of athlete's foot.  (+ info)

best cure for blistering tinea pedis?

My symptoms appear to be different from those I read on the web. I have blisters filled with pus. Have done oral Lamisil, all kinds of creams, soaking in Listerine. No itching or burning. Is this really tinea pedis?
Thanks Lakcia on the staph possibility. I've tried the OTC Lotriman. Am now on 4th tube of Ciclopirox Cream 0.77. Helps but no cure. Less blisters but occasional.
Any other help would be greatly appreciated.

does the causitive agent 'tinea pedis' in the disease athletes food produce spores?

Yes. Tinea Pedis is a parasitic fungal infection of the epidermis of the foot.

It develops when the foot gets infected with fungal spores in the outer layer of the skin. Usually these spores will not thrive on the skin, unless there is a favorable damp milieu like when one sweats while wearing tight footwear during sports or during the warm season. These conditions allow the fungal spores to thrive, divide and multiply, causing symptoms.  (+ info)

Is it tinea pedis?

I had skin peeling between my toes and also the bottom of my feet. It's not itchy but it feels dry. I applied medication for tinea pedis but it doesn't help? What can it be? Just dry skin? It's winter here in NZ.. I'm not sure which is which now.. Can someone advice please!! Thanks :-)

It most likely is tinea pedia (athletes foot). It is a fungal infection and now that it is winter in New Zealand you are likely wearing shoes and your feet are probably sweating which is a perfect environment for it to thrive. I would have a doctor have a look at it and tell you what it is for sure and see what they recommend for treating it.  (+ info)

Chronic athlete's foot (Tinea Pedis)?

I've tried all the drug store brands...even Lotrimin AF (which claims the killer cure) it seemed to work,but the condition came back even worse and was ineffective later on.I go barefoot after showering with fans blowing on my feet for hours to stop the fungus.I tried soaking in pure vinegar,Clorox bleach,hydrogen peroxide,rubbing alcohol.Then I read that WW2 soldiers who had trench foot would soak their feet in diesel fuel for an hour or so....this method worked by starving the fungi of oxygen.Any advise on the diesel fuel method?

This Is A Strange Cure! But It Works! If You Will Pee While In The Shower (Getting It Under Your Feet) That Will Go Away! If Vinegar Doesnt Do The Job This Will!  (+ info)
