kill fungus spores in shoes?
I just got rid of toenail fungus. Now I want to kill the spores in my shoes—I use a disinfectant that kills staph virus–but it doesn’t kill fungus spores. Are there any home remedies? The only idea I came up with was to throw all my shoes in the dryer–try to understand. This is my 2nd time catching a toenail fungus(I am a competition swimmer)and had thrown all my shoes out and bought new one. I had been overseas and bought me very nice and warm boots there–so I don’t want to throw my shoes away, they all are no older than 1 1/2 year. I figured that if I can wash and dry my leather sneakers, I can try to put my leather shoes into the hot dryer—is there any other home remedy to kill fungus in shoes without gaining spots on the leather? Thanks you!!
somehow need to keep shoes in warm/hot place with light. sunlight kills fungus. not sure if medicine you used could be sprayed or wipe down inside of shoes. What a pain. I’ve had it too, but no problem with shoes, mine was from potent IV antibiotics. Bleach will kill it too, maybe there is that shoe spray, lamisal or other for athletes foot that you can spray inside shoes? hopefully, that won’t damage the leather, also, wearing socks or something to line inside of shoe?

How to treat that toenail fungus?
I noticed something under my nail and I tried to hit it good at the beginning stages to get rid of it. I was soaking my foot in a mixture of Apple Cider Vinegar and a mouthwash twice a day and using Vick’s Vapo Rub for the remaining time (day and night). It has been about two weeks now and the area is black and I can see the improvement. I could guess that I have killed most of it like that, but I am not 100% sure. I also use Lysol spray in my shoes.
On the top of that I cut out most of the nail that was over it to keep hitting it directly and I am wondering what would be the best thing to put on it (not on the nail, but directly on the infected skin). Would it be alcohol or some other thing. Something that would be best at killing it directly on the skin. Thanks.
Use an anti bacterial cream 3x a day very thin:then it will vanish in no time.
Why do shoes hurt my big toenails?
Since I have gained a lot of weight I stopped wearing closed shoes and stick with my flip-flops. So for about 4 years I have worn nothing but flip-flops. In those 4 years I have worn closed shoes on occasions, tennis shoes (biking, walking, and hiking) and dress shoes for interviews and more formal occasions.
My toe nails are not thick, I do not have fungus, or any ingrown nails. My nails are cut short and they are flat (they don’t curve up or down) so they stick strait out from my toe.
I have tried shoes that were a 1/2 size too big, some tight, some just right (even been fitted at a running shoe store). ANY kind of close toed shoes KILL my big toe nails. They never get black or blue, but they are tender for days after I wear the shoes.
Now I have taken up quad skating. I am only skating in 15 min intervals right now, so my toes are not tender, but I feel the pain starting already. The skates that I bought were professionally sized for me and fitted for me by a company that provides derby skaters their gear.
Why do my nails hurt? What can I do to make them not hurt???
After soaking your toe with the vinegar/listerine mixture, dry your toe, and apply Tea Tree Oil to your toenail. Keep your nail cut as short as possible and try to have the oil go behind the nail as well as over it. The brand I used was purchased at a health food store for approx. $20.00 for 4 ounces. It is from “NOW Foods”. I first used a cheap drugstore brand which didn’t work, but this oil really does the job. The label says to dilute with water, but I used it full strength. I applied it after soaking three times a day for six weeks to make sure I got it all. It took a few months for the nail to totally grow out. Dr. Weil recommended this Tea Tree Oil remedy on his website. I was surprised how simple it is.
Change your socks every day, avoid slippers, and avoid any shoes that you wore while suffering from the fungal infection. Always avoid moisture. If you are a runner like me, immediately remove your socks and running shoes after your run. Good luck!
