footFortunately, foot fungus, while it can appear disgusting, is a very minor medical issue, and there are a number of home remedies that have been proven to work over the years.

Perhaps the most popular is simply to wash and dry your foot throughout the day. Most fungus problems occur because of an inability for the skin on the foot to respire properly. If you consistently engage in long, hard hours of work or exercise through which you sweat moderately to profusely, you may find that your fungus has occurred simply because your foot has not been properly cleaned throughout the day.

Warm, moist socks can enable the fungus to appear more readily. For this cure, all that’s necessary is for you to remove your shoes and socks and bathe your feet in soapy warm. After cleansing your foot, be sure to take care to vigorously dry the entire area of your foot, even in places where the fungus was not yet visible.

This simple action, in conjunction with changing your socks frequently if you’re engaged in long activity, can solve as much as 80-90% of foot fungus problems, as long as the act is performed early enough.

If the fungus is further developed, this may not be enough, in which case the best course of action is to apply a fungus cream.
