Athlete's Foot is a fungal infection that causes the skin on your feet, especially between the toes, to become sore and itchy. Keeping feet dry at all times and going barefoot as often as possible can prevent athlete's foot.
But if you've got athlete's foot, head for the kitchen. Any herb with anti-fungal properties can be used to treat Athlete's foot, but the most efficient treatment is garlic. Crush some garlic cloves and add them to a warm foot bath. Alternatively, steep crushed cloves of garlic in vegetable for 1-2 days. Apply the oil with a clean cloth to your feet.
