It is a natural part of mankind's character to explore and experiment.
Part of that has led us to discover effective antifungals.
So go to the doctor or pharmacist and get one that is as much a product of nature as anything else is.

I have tebinafine and daktacort creams at home. I don’t need the remedies. I just thought it would be helpful to other viewers.

Hi, there are many over the counter remedies for athlete's foot available. I heard for that rubbing tea tree oil is good for reducing athlete foot's symptomps because of its antifungal and antibacterial properties (should be mixed with a carrier oil, like coconut oil, otherwise it will sting). For crusty foot I found generally sea salt bath good as remedies. But I would maybe inform myself more about this or consult a doctor before trying any of this.

Hello,
Thanks for that. I have tried doing these two things before and now, my athelete's foot is gone. The doctor gave me some creams but said I can do these things aswell. Thanks.

Glad someone is experiencing a success with both methods. I find the sea salt bath especially comforting for crusty feet. I even do it occassionally even after I stopped having athlete's foot. Your feet will feel smoother afterwards.
