You want to fix a fungal infection on your feet?
PISS ON 'EM!

The urea kills off just about anything, unless you have some form of kidney/urinary tract infection, urine is completely sterile.
Pissing on your feet in the shower is a good "preventative maintenance" I do it all the time.
For a serious fungal infection you might need to use a (washed) pair of old socks and put them on. Piss on your feet (and socks) then put them in garbage bags (so you can walk around without getting piss all over the place.
Take the liners out of your footwear and throw them in the washer when you do this though or you will just re-infect your feet.
About 1/2 hour to an hour later your feet will be baby soft, maybe wrinkly (mine weren't) and you will probably have to burn the socks.
I got a pretty bad case of foot rot when I was living on a deserted island for a few weeks, that humidity is killer.
Did this, made sure to wipe around my toes with a q-tip and get all of the sock fuzzies off before doing it and even in that climate it worked FAST!
No smell ever again, this was ~5 years ago.
2 of my friends had the same problem, one of them could have knocked a buzzard off a gut wagon. One hour later, no smell.
If you want a stronger treatment, drink less water

*edit* For some reason, every few years my feet will start to sweat. This is a PITA in a cold climate, the sock treatment works for this too. Make sure your daily wear socks have as little acrylic/nylon in them as possible as well, synthetics (even "anti-fungal") promote sweating. The additional moisture makes a happy home for little plants to grow on your metatarsals

*edit #2* I have found that a couple of aspirin, crushed up and mixed with a good quality hand lotion can fix a few different skin problems. Heals welding burns fast too, I never wear gloves so it is a handy thing to have in the med kit.

It's not what you intend on doing that gets you hurt. Eye protection is there to prevent accidental eye damage in case you, for example, accidentally press the on button while carrying the laser and it hits your eyes.

One time I was testing the power of a 445nm laser, when the beam hit a tiny scratch on the edge of the meter's metal which had scraped away some of the matte black surface, revealing the metal below. The beam reflected directly into one of my eyes. Fortunately, I was wearing goggles and it only appeared bright but not blindingly bright, and I was spared my vision. I was being really careful--and I was--but I certainly didn't expect the meter itself to be the source of reflections.

So if you're going to blast your toes with sufficient levels of light to cook the fungus, you really ought to buy some goggles to protect your eyes.

I wonder what a doctor would say if you asked, "What is more effective at treating foot fungus: Peeing on it, or aiming a laser pointer at it?"

Actually it was my doc that told me about it.
We were hanging out having a beer and I was asking what "non-sterile" urine meant.
He is full of bizarre stories man....
He is retired now but at the time he was my doctor, kind of crazy but in a good way ^_^

*edit* I don't usually post bull$#it, if I do I'll make it obvious that it is a joke!
This does in fact work and really, what would you lose by trying it?

I've actually read tests with rats.. somewhere
where blue lasers (405nm) with 300mW output with 5 seconds a day
maked the rats heal faster from their wounds (4x faster :P)

and the infrared lasers (980nm) with 300mW output with 5 seconds a day
maked the rats skin (tested with a machine) rupture with 35% more strength.

just my 2 cents :P

You know, I believe you, that this may very well work but I gotta say, nothing on this forum has quite made me say "man what." than this.

I can just imagine a situation... girlfriend/wife to guy:

Quote:
"Why do you have garbage bags on your feet?"

"Because I pissed on my socks."

"What?"

"It's good for you. I saw it on the internet."

Again, not doubting you, but man, what a



moment....

If you do that "Nbabinsky" please video tape it and post it for us. I'd love that reaction scene as well. That would be To much Fun to watch that.

No no not only pee on it but to pee onto your socks and seal them in a plastic bags so you can walk around your house sloshing in pee sock bags. Only to wip out your 500mW 405nm laser to scar your skin away.....

I'd rather have a drunken old doctor with a lot of the old medical knowledge than a lot of these new quacks that think they are little gods.
This guy is like most of the people on LPF, solid, intelligent, and has loads of real world experience.
Too many "upper class" med students wouldn't be able to twist a wrench or ride a horse if their life depended on it.
This guy, even retired would take on a 2 hour drive during a whiteout, 6 river crossings, and a three hour ride to help an outfitter with a broken leg. I know he could because he did.
The world won't be as good when this guy kicks off.

This guy is like most of the people on LPF, solid, intelligent, and has loads of real world experience.
Too many "upper class" med students wouldn't be able to twist a wrench or ride a horse if their life depended on it.
This guy, even retired would take on a 2 hour drive during a whiteout, 6 river crossings, and a three hour ride to help an outfitter with a broken leg. I know he could because he did.
The world won't be as good when this guy kicks off.
I agree with you my friend. And I'm sure it probably works (the pee thing not the laser). A lot of people would be surprised whats in the different things they take and use and what other things can be used to treat said issue. I have been put through a lot in my medical situation and have gone through a ton of doctors and have heard a lot of horror stories and been through some of my own my self.

I just found it amusing what he suggested and I'm sure you even think it's a funny situation when done as described.

I hope no offense was taken.

Oh, no I try to never take offense. Laughing about stuff is more fun
I was just trying to say that this guy is awesome, the new docs should be learning from the old ones, not the teachers that weren't good enough to be real doctors in the first place.
Thats one of the reasons I like LPF. If you started at the beginning, went to school to become an electrical engineer they will teach you everything they can regardless of if you will ever need that info.
It took about a month to learn what I needed to know from people that DO this stuff and it would have taken years to learn it in a university for a hundred grand.
Practical knowledge is being lost faster and faster all the time
I have been lucky with docs, my family physician is great. She is someone you can actually share ideas with instead of being "talked at", knows her stuff and is always learning more, but her hands are really frikken cold!
When I moved out of the city my rural doc (the one that retired) was never too busy and when I was learning all I could about medicine (I go off on tangents and learn different subjects for no reason) I'd go in and just ask him any question imaginable. I managed to stump him a couple of times but he would find out and call with the answer in a day or two.
Old school attitude, I respect that.

Thats because people used to do what there passion was for the most part. And now everyone knows more about how to get some electronic gadget to do something rather than how to do it them self. And $$ is why people work now, it costs more to live and pay for all the electronics that pamper them.

Greed is the new culture. Cheap Fast and keep Buying.
