Running On All Four Cylinders Again...Thanks to Uncle Vick!

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Well after a year of creams, vinegar, lotions, and a short but sweet prescription, I found a fascinating relief for my athlete's foot! I was surfing around WebMD (one of my go-tos) and a guy had commented on using Vick's VapoRub. I believe he said his dermatologist recommended it. He was told that it actually soaks into the skin to kill the fungus! Well, I bought a tub and the first day it was like having my feet back. I know this may not sound like a big deal, but when you are a runner, IT IS A HUGE DEAL. Especially if you use running as a treatment for anger and frustration and overall mental sanity!
It's been only three days and I can see my pink skin healing. There's scarce traces of rash and the itching has almost completely stopped! So here's my cliche of the year: it's a miracle!
I can walk from heel to toe FULLY again, run at my full stride, and CAN WALK PERIOD! This has done much for my energy both at work and home.
It feels sooooo good to be back!

    Make sure that you get new shoes since the fungus is also in your shoes now too. They will not die even if you bleach them. I saw a show on the History Channel that said that bleach is the worst thing that you can put on mold(fungus) and that it does not kill it but makes them white that you can't see them and that does make sense since you have to keep cleaning the same spot in the tub or show that the mold keeps coming back.
