Warm water and a little bit of oregano oil will definitely help your very in this situation.

As for the boots/shoes you currently have, you might wanna just get rid of 'em and find some new ones.
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

Sandals are great, but work best if you're switching from say a well ventilated shoe. I've gone from wearing boots to sandals, the boots were not well ventilated, so my feet had issues with cracking skin due to drying out with having more air to them, so if you do have an issue like that I recommend carrying some Vitamin E lotion.

try to be barefoot as much as possible
Yep, can second that. I don't like boots, but of course in some situations they are the best footwear you can have (esp. in cold, wet weather, for support while walking long distances, protection, etc.)

Said that, if I wear boots I take them off as soon as I can and switch to flip flops (if I have any) or just stay shoeless.

So, except blisters (cause of wearing broken shoes) in the last years I never had any foot problems. :)

Yeah epson salt (magnesium sulfate) is amazing, not only does it contain magnesium as stated above but also contains sulfur which is an amazing fungicide!

Another option that could help is making a medicated oil with tea tree and eucalyptus oil in coconut oil (or any affordable oil as a carrier) and treating your feet with it - as well as goldbonds for putting in shoes/boots

Best of luck, fungal infections suck big time.

So I'm pretty sure I have pretty bad athletis/travler foot. My toe nail fell off not too long ago and the stench is uh...bad haha. Any natural/alt medicine cures to this?
tea tree oil for athlete's foot, youd wanna dilute tea tree oil in some carrier oil such as almond oil or coconut oil or vit e it's cheap and apply it to the affected areas. I recommended that you avoid taking this by mouth. Only on the feet themselves. No oral intake! Not fun.

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I feel uncomfortable with all of the transphobic micro-aggressions being thrown around here lately. I also feel uncomfortable standing up in defense of trans folk, me included, in fear of developing discourse without the consequence of proper accountability.
