Question: very smelly soggy feet
|girlfriend - Fri May 29, 2009 8:03 pm|
Hi... I am having the hardest time trying to cure my boyfriend's stink toe (as he lovingly calls it) syptoms: soggy, white, patchy, spots on the balls, heals, and toes.. and a weird ulcer-type rash that almost looks like something is literally eating perfectly round holes in his skin. After a day of work his feet smell like something dead and his socks are yellow where they oozed. I have tried bleach, hydrogen peroxide, tea tree oil, i have been giving him huge doses of probiotics cuz i was thinking it could be a yeast infection. The probiotics have definitely helped his cravings for massive amounts of sugar.. but his feet have not changed.. especially since its getting hotter. Strangely, he also has a patchy tongue which again spells yeast infection. Is there an oral medication for this? the dr he went to was a foot specialist and said he had never seen it before and prescribed a topical cream... hahahaha... ya rite!! Like a 24 year old mechanic is gonna be serious about that! Any help here i'd appreciate... thanx in advance

Hello,your boyfriend seems to have the basic problemof hyperhydrosis ie excessive sweating superadded by candidiasis ie yeast infection.The best remedy would be to apply antifungal powder to the feet often.Sure internal antifungals are there but this may not be an indication here.Bestwishes.
