Podiatry Care: Keeping Your Feet Happy

Up until four months ago, I suffered from chronic foot and ankle pain. No matter what I did to ease my pain, my feet and ankles continued to hurt. Finally, I asked my primary doctor for a referral to a podiatrist. Although I love my primary doctor, they simply couldn't treat my foot and ankle pain successfully. I needed to see someone who could. My podiatrist examined my condition and determined that I had poor blood circulation and swelling in my feet and ankles. My podiatrist prescribed special cushions to wear in my shoes to help my blood circulate better and a change in my diet to reduce the fluids in my body. Now, my feet and ankles feel wonderful. If you have pain in your feet, ankles or legs, read my blog about podiatry care, treatments and much more. Thanks for reading.

Can't Get Rid Of Your Athlete's Foot? Try Apple Cider Vinegar

Athlete's foot can be an embarrassing and uncomfortable problem to have. It is caused by a fungus that gets into your skin, and it can leave you with feet that are itchy, dry, peeling, and burning. Getting rid of athlete's foot will take time and work, and there are many different remedies you could try, including apple cider vinegar. Here are several things you should know about using apple cider vinegar to eliminate your athlete's foot.

Choose the right type of apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is something you can purchase from grocery stores or natural health food stores, and there are differences with the types you can choose from. When you purchase this for treating any type of skin disorder, you will want to choose the right type. Here are several characteristics to look for when you purchase this product:

  • Look for raw, organic vinegar – The best type of apple cider vinegar to buy is raw, organic vinegar. This type is usually cloudy and may not look the best, but it will work the best. The type available in grocery stores is not usually raw and organic, so be prepared to shop around to find a type that is raw and organic.
  • Make sure it is non-pasteurized – Another important quality to find in apple cider vinegar is a brand that has not been pasteurized. When vinegar is pasteurized, a lot of the vitamins and minerals are removed.
  • Find a type that has the mother in it – The mother in apple cider vinegar refers to the floaty debris in this liquid. This is called mother, and it is made up of live bacteria.

After finding the right type of apple cider vinegar, you can begin using it to treat your athlete's foot.

How to use apple cider vinegar to treat athlete's foot

Apple cider vinegar has the ability to kill the bacteria and fungus causing your athlete's foot, but this product can be potent and harsh. The best way to use it is full-strength; however, this may cause too much irritation to your skin. If so, you can mix it equally with water. To use this product, place enough apple cider vinegar in a foot tub so you can place your infected feet completely in the solution. Soak them in this tub for 30 minutes and repeat two or three times each day. By doing this, you may be able to eliminate your athlete's foot within a couple weeks.  

If you cannot get rid of your athlete's foot with this method, you may want to call a podiatrist, like Klein Stanley Jay DPM. Podiatrists specialize in all types of issues relating to the feet, and this type of doctor may be able to help you find a different treatment option to try.
