I Heard That Listerine Baths Help With Skin Fungus Is It True
Dtr gets red itchy bumps on skin (esp. Feet) in weather warmer than 50 deg F. It is not a fungus or infection, only feels better with cold bath. Why?
Likely heat rash: Heat rashes are very common especially in moist places like the groin, arm pits, and feet. They can take many forms and can itch or not. Usually triggered by hotter temps that you describe but there are substantial individual differences in the level of heat and moisture required for triggering. If it is a huge problem for you, see a Dermatologist for suggested treatment. Read more
How do you completely get rid of toe fungus? I've been using listerine and soaking my feet in it for 20mins and it works. But will it work permanently
You: Can soak in listerine until ur foot turns blue and it will not help. I repeat it will never kill the fungus. The fungus lives under the nail in the bed and matrix. You must get a culture from a reliable lab that deals with tissue like bako. Labs like quest just don't have the know how. Then you can choose a real fda approved topical, oral or laser procedure. I do them all and they work. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What amount of water/listerine or vinegar should you use to soak your feet to treat toenail fungus?
Treat the cause 1st: Not the symptoms. If there's fungus present, this points to the person's immunity status being compromised or reduced. So that's the first thing that should be addressed, so that the fungus doesn't continue growing indefinitely. Soaking the foot in any type of solution is only a temporary measure that may not help long term. More important to treat the root cause first, not just the symptoms.

Will lavender or rosemary oil help treat nail fungus? Have already tried apple cider vinegar, listerine, coconut and tea tree oil
Not usually.: Toenail fungus is very common, and unfortunately very difficult to cure 100%. We can test the nail to see if it is a callused or traumatized nail or if it is indeed fungus, and from there you have several options: topical or oral antifungal medications, laser nail treatment, or removal of the nail in severe cases. See your doctor to talk about which treatment is right for you. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When I get up in the morning and lean my head back and gargle with listerine, I spit out a brownish flem, does this mean I'm infected.?
Coffee drinker?: It's fairly normal for a bit of mucous (phlegm) to accumulate deep in the throat during the night. If you're a coffee drinker and like to consume your morning cup of joe prior to your listerine, it can 'stain' that brown. The heat from the coffee can loosen it up making it easier to come up when you gargle, but it'll still be brown. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
So I've heard that listerine plus vinegar plus warm water on feet for 10 minutes can make dead skin off, but is there a bad thing that it could maybe do?
Not really: I did a search on web and didn't really find any testimonials as to the success of this mixture other than statements of it feeling good. I believe that it may vary from person to person, the source of the dead skin and the duration. If in doubt, I would check with a dr. Or a holistic practitioner. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Over the past 4 days I have noticed that the skin on the left side roof of my mouth is peeling. I have gargled with reg. Listerine. Should I worry?
Peeling in mouth: Did you burn or injure your mouth? This would cause the skin to peel. If not it should be checked by your dentist for signs of infection, thrush, leukoplakia or oral cancer. Any abnormal changes in your mouth should be checked by your dentist or an oral surgeon. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is it true that you may get even more pimples/skin problems if you take a full bath more than daily? I am asking this because the water is quite salty
No: This is just one more bit of folklore. Instead, i'd urge you to have your acne treated scientifically. If two weeks on benzoyl peroxide has not worked, or you have acne on your trunk, get with your physician. A topical or systemic antibiotic will usually clear you, or for severe / cystic acne, a dermatology consultation is in order. Read more
