I use tea tree oil to treat athlete’s foot

By | October 8, 2016

A few days ago, I found toes of my left foot were itchy. Firstly I thought it’s because of mosquito bites, but later I found all the 5 toes of left foot were itchy and peeling without red swollen points caused by mosquito bites. I guessed my toes were infected by fungus.

I searched the symptom online, and now I know it’s called “Athlete’s foot” because athletes often get it. The fungus grows on the damp, warm surfaces around pools, public showers, and locker rooms. Athletes often walk barefoot on these surfaces and easily get infected with fungus to suffer “Athlete’s foot”. So I got “Athlete’s foot” may because recently I walked barefoot in the grass field and my bath room.

But it’s not that difficult for me to handle these fungus, I have tea tree oil, a very strong natural antiseptic from Australia, that I ever used to handle toenail infection (paronychia) effectively. For this problem, I smeared the infected toes with tea tree oil for only one time, and next day the itch stopped!
