We all know that during the hot summer days, our feet sweat more. This increases the chances of developing infections in the toe area. So, that’s why many medical experts highly recommend that we all should walk barefoot as much as possible. It’s extremely important for you and your health to take care of your feet during the hot summer days. You should avoid using nylon socks and most definitely avoid shoes with synthetic insoles. But, if you already have problems with fungal infections, we are going to show you some extremely efficient and natural homemade treatments. All you have to do is soak your feet in these liquids:
The yogurt contains the live bacteria – acidophilus. This is why it’s an extremely efficient remedy for any type of foot infections that usually develop in the area between the nails and toes. It also contains the friendly type of microorganisms, which are destroying fungal infections very efficiently. You can soak your feet in yogurt, or you can just rub yogurt all over your feet and leave it dry. When it’s dried, wash your feet with cold water.
First, make a cold water and sodium bicarbonate combo. You need to keep in mind this ratio 1:3 when you are making this combination. Then, apply this “deadly” combination to your shoes and allow it to air-dry. This “deadly” combo will destroy all the potential bacteria in your shoes.
This ingredient is “lethal” for all the bacteria and fungi on your feet, just like the sodium bicarbonate-water combo. All you have to do is soak your feet in a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and cold water. With this natural method, you will kill all unpleasant fungal infections and prevent them from spreading. Here’s how to make this mixture. You need to add 100 ml of 3% pharmaceutical grade hydrogen peroxide in 1 liter of distilled water and soak your feet for 20 minutes. You need to repeat this method every morning until you get rid of the fungal infections.
Using starch as an ingredient in different types of pastes and mixtures that prevent the unpleasant bacteria and fungi is great. This is because starch is an amazing absorbent. It absorbs the moisture extremely efficiently. Here’s what you need to do. Just mix ½ tsp. of corn starch with a little bit of warm water. Then, set the oven to 220° and keep the mixture in the oven until it goes dark. Wash and dry your feet before you apply this mixture on them. When you rub this mixture, leave it for 1 minute and then wash is off with warm water.
