Treat foot diseases with these 3 unusual methods
When we're bothered by corns, foot fungus or nail fungus, we either look for a pharmacy or run straight to the doctor. But if your problem is not that serious you could first try a few unconventional methods at home. They aren't difficult — but might be amusing at first glance.
1. Nail Fungus Killer
- 17 fl oz mouthwash
- 17 fl oz vinegar
- 13 fl oz water
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl that is large enough for you to use as a footbath. Then you can simply soak your feet in it. The mixture acts as a disinfectant and kills bacteria as well as germs underneath your toenails.
2. Removing corns
- 1 onion, chopped in half
- 8.5 fl oz vinegar
- 1 elasticated bandage
For this trick, you actually have to spend a night with an onion taped to your foot. You do this as follows: shortly before you go to bed, cut an onion in half and let it soak in vinegar for 30 minutes. Then fix it in place over your corn with the help of the bandage. For an even better hold and less of bad smell, it's best if you can pull a sock on your foot over the whole thing. This procedure will cause any corns to soften and fall off.
3. Fighting Foot Fungus
This is the least complicated, but perhaps the stickiest trick: you should spread the honey on the affected places. It prevents inflammation and has an antimicrobial effect.
Hopefully, this has given you some inspiration if your feet aren't doing too well. And you can always fall back on these tips in the future. Unfortunately, these sorts of problems can always come back. At least now you have some ideas!
