So, two years ago I had athlete’s foot, and now I have it again. Like last time, I must have gotten it an the BSA summer camp I attended with my troop. Last time it lasted for months. Probably from mid July till October.
Two weeks ago is when I really noticed it. I have been treating it with Lamisil, desenex powder, tinactin spray and white vinegar foot soaks.
This week I have gotten more strict with my treatments (at first I was hoping the Lamisil would take care of it without too much trouble.
Currently, when I wake up in the morning I wipe my feet with rubbing alcohol, then apply Lamisil cream (and remain bare foot). About 40 minuets later I apply desenex powder and put on my socks and boots and go to work. When I take my lunch break I change my socks and use the tinactin spray.
After I shower I dry my feet with paper towels and then use a hair dryer on them. About 30 minuets later I soak my feet in white vinegar (I was using it undiluted. I was thinking that was better. But starting today I am going to mix 1 part vinegar with 2 parts hot water (I am guessing the heat helps it to be absorbed into the skin)). Then before bed I wipe my feet with rubbing alcohol, and apply Lamisil again.
I spray generic Lysol in my boots (and put them on a boot dryer), and use it on my bath tub, and give my walkways in the kitchen a fast spray at night. I go bare foot as often as I can (I live alone). I wash and dry my socks on their own on the hottest setting. And for all my clothes wash them with some Pine-sol added along with my normal detergent, and I dry them on the hottest setting.
Should this work? Any other ideas?
