Fungal infection

Hello,

Well, for starters, thank you for taking the time to read my posting.

A few weeks ago I noticed that the soles of my feet were dry & that the skin was cracking (as if the bare foot had been dragged across a rough surface...which was not the case). I bought moisturizer so as to soften the skin, yet the rough skin exterior persisted. Then came the itching & burning sensation (feet).

I checked online & found out I had Athlete's Foot  (something I nerver had before & I am baffled as to how I got it in the first place...I read a list as to how it can be gotten, yet none of the scenarios applied to me).

Is the Lamisil AT spray (for the bottom of my feet) a good option? Mycocide (for under the nails of the big toes...infection site is small at this point...far less then 1/3 of the size of a dime...very front of toe nails, right & left, where they come in contact with the flesh of the toes)?

I could kick myself for not realizing the significance of this problem sooner, yet I also have never had to deal with a fungal infection either (ergo my naivity). Well, needless to say I wish I did not have this at all or, at least, realized what it was sooner.

I thank you in advance for all of your help and understanding.

Ben

Its ok man everyone gets it at sometime. Yes lamisil is made for fungal things such as foots and jockitch. Put antibitoic cream on the infection then lamisil all around where needed.

Dear DeadLast,

"Its ok man everyone gets it at sometime. Yes lamisil is made for fungal things such as foots and jockitch. Put antibitoic cream on the infection then lamisil all around where needed."

I (somehow) managed to avoid this very condition for almost three decades (this really is a bad time to have it...where I live its hot & humid).

I started with the Lamasil AT spray tonight, yet its a tiny bottle that was already empty after just one application (bottom of both feet). The Mycocide (for under the toe nails) was out-off-stock, hence I'll have to send my serfs out Saturday to fetch me some.

Thanks for responding & I would enjoy hearing from others as well (treatments for/experiance with Athlete's Foot).
