Patient Comments: Athlete's Foot - Symptoms

How long did the symptoms of your athlete's foot last? Was there anything that helped with symptom relief?

I have used 3 different creams and they have not helped much. Keeping feet dry and washing in salt or vinegar every night has helped and I have worn thongs around the home and this has helped a lot. I have applied tea tree oil after washing feet and this has helped a great deal.

My son has had athletes foot since he was 13 years old and is now 35 years old. He's tried everything and it keeps coming back. He's sick of going to the doctor and not getting any lasting results.

I have athlete's foot under my arms. I have had this for two years now, and it is very hurtful and frustrating. Nothing seems to work. I hurt so much, and it is red and leaking!
