...Athlete's Foot...

Athlete's foot is caused by an organism that lives on the skin and breeds under warm, moist conditions. Can a couch potato get athlete's feet? You can bet your remote control. This fungus is an equal opportunity affliction. Male/female, athlete or not. Worse it can take 4 to 6 weeks to get rid of it.
The best tips I can offer are:

1. Baby your feet with soaking, rubs, and rest.
2. Salt your feet by soaking them in a salty water solution. 2 teaspoons of salt per pint of warm water. Do this at least twice a day. This is very unappealing to the fungus, and will also help antifungal medications penetrate deeper and act more effectively.
3. Air them out. No not your feet, your shoes. Remove the laces and prop them open. The air and sun outside will help kill the fungus germs. This even works for sandles as well.
