just keep em dry and clean and try to stay off them as much as possible (i know its basically impossible), as long as you dont get infected it outta go away in a week or so. if you notice soars or extreme swelling thats when you got a real problem, but otherwise its pretty managable.I never sleep with em on, I'm no Greene or oogle lol. It's been a surprise for me beCause I do try and be barefoot as much as possible.ive never had this problem before because I tend to take as much care of my feet as possible. One of those "it'll never happen to me" moments but yea, prevention I've been good at but I got it so now I need a cure lol
Thats a givin for anybody we bring home. Line em up for the shower. Also Spraying your feet down with hydrogen peroxide then a quick rinse nightly on the road always helped me from never getting boot rot.Hahaha oh man I deff stink, I hope you guys have a shower cuz I hardly ever take adventuage of one but uh... Yea I could probably use it
ide be most concerned about that no-nail getting infected. you might wanna take extra care of that particular toe, it sounds like yer getting housed up at least for a bit? keep that fucking no-toenail toe clean as you can (duh) and ide recomend possibly keeping it loosly wrapped so it doesnt get stuck to the inside of yer sock unless yer changing socks at least once a day. infection is way more serious then just regular boot rot so take care of that toe for sure. my ex lost a toe nail not to long ago not from boot rot...the second toe nail just decided it didnt want to be part of the family anymore and left town. im sure you already know but take care of them feet man!I kinda hate hippies but also do the hippie shit when it comes to meds, I hate hydrogen peroxide and the such. Tends to exacerbate the problem a lot of times. No swelling or sores yet just nail loss and uh like I said quite a rancid smell. The nail loss worried me most
epsom salt would be great but might sting like hell on that no-toe nail.Best suggestion I have to offer is to soak your feet in a epsom salt bath, it will help heal your feet as well as killing off the athletes foot fungal infection. You can also use Betadine which can be found OTC
huh i had no idea epsom salt was good like that, thanks for the info.Also if you want to keep the athletes foot away I recommend using baking powder put a good amount in each shoe and move it around to get everywhere, toss them into a bag, wake up the next morning and dump the powder out. Should smell fresh again and will absorb a bit of moisture.
EDIT: Not true to the post above mine "The main substance of Epsom salt is magnesium, which is helpful for woundhealing. In fact, this substance does not trigger stinging sensation on an open wound and instead, gives a soothing sensation. Hence, Epsom salt has been widely used for enhancing wound healing and inhibiting infection progress" http://woundcaresociety.org/epsom-salt-burn-open-wounds
Also I worked as a RNA back in 2011 for a couple years. Epsom salt or Betadine soak were the 2 main methods we would suggest for people with foot infections or athlete's foot.
