This unpleasant skin condition we all know as athlete’s foot is caused by a feet fungus that likes to grow in warm and moist places, such as in between our fingers. Although athlete’s foot is really contagious (you can get it by a simple touch), some are more predisposed on getting it than others, but as for all of the other skin infections out there, there is a home remedy for athlete’s foot we are about to share with you right here.
Horsetail Remedy for Athlete’s Foot
Horsetail is the best herb that fights athlete’s foot and other fungus caused skin infections and in the old times people used to use it with this purpose. You need to fix some warm horsetail cataplasms as follows.
- Boil the horsetail and then take it out and wrap it in a clean piece of gauze or other natural piece of fabric, but make sure that is a soft material.
- Wrap the cataplasm around your feet, wherever the fungus has attacked and then take on some wool socks on your feet.
- Make sure you keep the cataplasm on until the very next morning, so it will work overnight.
- When you take the cataplasm off, smear the feet with marigold made ointment (make sure you get a natural marigold made ointment) right away.
During the day you shall wear only 100% cotton socks on because these are the socks that allow the foot to breath and hence it helps the process of healing.
Also, during the day anoint the feet with Swedish bitter and make sure you let it dry on your skin and then again anoint the feet with marigold ointment.
Horsetail baths work wonders for your feet when you experience skin eruptions and a lot on itch, even if they have scabs on or pus.
For best results drink 3 cups of horsetail tea daily. Drink the teas with small sips throughout the day.
This home remedy for athlete’s foot has proved very efficient for those who have suffered from this unpleasant situation. Our saying is that men cannot win nature nor improve in any ways the miraculous effects of the plants that grow effortless on our beautiful planet.
