understanding_athletes_foot_basicsMany years ago when I was training to become a professional wrestler,  a friend named Jamie Fair told me about an old trick that was sure to cure athlete’s foot.

I never put very much thought into it because I had never had athlete’s foot before.  Still, to this day, I have never had athlete’s foot.  But with the training schedule I keep now, it crossed my mind to find out if Jamie’s statement was in fact true… or was it just another old wise-tale?

After investigating the topic, I learned very quickly that my friend isn’t the only one who had heard of this cure.  All across the web, you’ll find numerous articles that go into great detail of all facts involving athlete’s foot.

The answer with the best & most understandable information came from Wiki Answers.

Can urine prevent or cure athlete’s foot?  Clinical studies have not proven such.

For all of you that make it a habit to aim at your feet while in the shower, nice try – but no cigar.  Your best bet is to have a physician examine the foot lesion and if necessary prescribe the correct therapeutic intervention (ie, cream, ointment, etc.).
