Patient Comments: Athlete's Foot - Treatment

What was the cure for your athlete's foot?

Comment from: Kim, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: September 07

During the day, I use the Equate brand at Walmart for Athlete's Foot. It is the clotrimazole usp 1%. At night I use Vick's vapor rub. It has cleared up, but it took a couple of months.

Special cedarsoles made from cedarwood cured my athlete's foot. The natural wood binds moisture and reduces nail fungus within a few weeks.
