Voet Fungus

My man het ' n voet probleem. ons was al by die dokter maar dit bly terug kom. Die simptome is soos athletes foot. dit verspreu na die bokant van sy tone en middel van sy voet. bestaan uit rooi blasie agtige (lyk soos miskietbyte) knoppies wat later begin sweet en sere raak. Die dokter het vanoggend vir hom A-por (Aspen) gegee om te gebruik. ek laat hom ook so gereeld moontlik met sy voete in sout water sit en maak dit dan self skoon en droog. hy dra net wol sokkies (wat ek gereeld vervang), maar moet elke dat steel cape skoene drae as gevolg van sy werk. Hy het wel 2 pare skoene en ek sorg dat hy nooit 2 dae na mekaar dieselfde paar drae nie. ek het karoo voetpoeier en die sprei blikkie vir hom gekoop. ons stort word gereeld geskrop en ek maak seker dat hy soveel as moontlik sonder skoene loop as hy by die huis is. is daar enige ander raad wat u my kan gee want ek en hy is al moedeloos.

Bais dankie vir U tyd.

Dear Chantal

It does seem that you have tried everything, I think that the real culprits are the safety boots. The toe cap will cause excessive sweating which in turn creates a perfect environment for fungal spores to flourish. I suggest you treat the boots. Get some formaldahyde from the pharmacist, put a couple of drops on two cotton balls and place one in each shoe. Now put the boots in a black plastic garbage bag, tie it closed and leave it overnight. This will effectively kill all spores in the boot. Make sure that you always use fresh socks and rotate the boots. Good luck!

Vergeet die sout water, Gebruik Dettol water.
Jy kan koerant in die skoene druk wat hy nie dra nie, sal dit droog maak. vat ' n bladsy en maak ' n bal. druk dit in die skoene totdat dit vol is.
Hy is nie alergies vir wol sokkies nie?
