Something that works very well for athletes' foot, is Tea Tree oil. It also has a number of other uses, bug repellent, sunburns, and a host of other things. Worth checking out.

I had Herpes Virus for over 11 years and over all these years was my worst experience in my life but all that changed when I came online and saw a lot of people talking about this great Dr IGUDIA on his YouTube channel who has the cure to Herpes virus infection. After ordering his herbal medication that was indeed the total end of my Herpes virus
