Wow I must be getting into shape. I think have athete's foot between my left pinky...itches like fury.

Anyone suffer and what treatment worked best for you as a swimmer? Funny, I haven't had Atheltes foot since the last time I swam for real when I was 12.

Contracting Ich, Dropsy or Fluke would be more understandable now with the time I spend in the water!

Aren't you supposed to urinate on your feet?

yuck!

Make sure you dry between your toes. Funky things love warm moist places.

green jell-o foot bath (allow it to set up)

flip flops year round (your co-workers will understand) might as well use that purple anti-nail fungus stuff also as a preemptive measure.

I thought that was for jelly fish stings?

That stuff that John Madden endorses (I can't remember the name....Tinactin..maybe...:confused: ) has worked for me in the past. Or go to the doctor and get some prescription cream.

But mostly what Lainey said, make sure you wash and dry your feet regularly.

Zeasorb-AF (Anti-Fungal) powder works when I have a flare-up. It's available without a prescription (like John Madden's Tinactin). I apply it directly to the affected area of the foot and rub it in good after carefully drying the feet.

Oh, and like they say in the service... keep your socks dry!
