How to Use Hydrogen Peroxide to Heal Athlete's Foot

Updated: Dec 1, 2022

35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide has an incredible number of healthful uses in the body and around the home!

This is one of the cheapest and most useful substances we have found for increasing health, so we want to tell you about it! 

  • Food grade means it is safe for ingestion as well as household use.

  • The high concentration is caustic at full strength. It must be handled with care - we suggest wearing gloves. It may cause chemical burns if you get it on your skin, but flush thoroughly with water and there will be no lasting damage.

  • The high concentration must be diluted for use, but this makes it a cost effective solution for a range of applications.

  • The brown bottle of hydrogen peroxide you find at drugstores has a concentration of 3%. While you can dilute it, you can't make it any stronger. It's great for topical uses, but is not safe to ingest as it contains stabilizers and other compounds. 

We're going to share just one amazing use for 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide in this post: HEAL ATHLETE'S FOOT!

Athlete's foot or tinea pedis is a contagious fungal infection that causes a scaly, red, and sometimes painful or itchy rash, blisters, or ulcers on the skin of the feet. It often begins between the toes. It often occurs in people who have been sweating a lot in tight fitting shoes, hence the name athlete's foot.  It is caused by a fungus very similar to ringworm.

Thankfully, it's very easy to treat with hydrogen peroxide!

Here's how to use 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide to heal athlete's foot:

  • Dilute 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide in a ratio of 1 and 1/4 cups hydrogen peroxide to 14 and 3/4 cups water to make 1 gallon.

  • Soak feet for 10-20 minutes.

  • Repeat nightly as needed until the condition clears.

  • Allow the feet to breathe regularly by removing shoes and changing socks after sweating. Walk barefoot on the Earth as much as possible! 

Cheers to your health and happiness!
