    Don’t waste your time asking non medical posters.

    Go to your doctors who can examine your ankle and arrange an X-ray if necessary.

  • Snitch replied to the topic Have I broken my ankle? in the forum Footcare 1 month ago

    I would say definitely not broken if you’re running on it OK. I broke my foot and couldn’t press the clutch down on my car for about four/five weeks.

  • Gemma replied to the topic Have I broken my ankle? in the forum Footcare 1 month ago

    No bruising isn’t a good sign to me! Get yourself an xray, always best to get checked!

  • kate replied to the topic Have I broken my ankle? in the forum Footcare 1 month ago

    I’d get is xrayed just incase but suspect you probably have a sprain.

  • emme replied to the topic Have I broken my ankle? in the forum Footcare 1 month ago

    Hmm, no not have not been resting as i am very busy at work.
    It’s a dull ache at night, I don’t notice it the rest of the time that’s why I have ignored it.
    It has not bruised either- not sure if that’s a good or a bad sign?

  • Gemma replied to the topic Have I broken my ankle? in the forum Footcare 1 month ago

    General guidelines say:

    -within 2 weeks a minor sprain will start to feel better.
    -ankle breaks = constant dull ache
    -ankle sprains = sharp pain with certain movement

    Have you been resting it? Is there bruising? When did the bruising come out?

    I think it would be worth an x-ray (I have become a bit of an expert in ankle sprains/break over the…[Read more]

    So a quick question, could my ankle be broken?
    I managed to drop my foot ankle deep into a rabbit hole amongst rocks and twisted as I tried to remove it.
    This happened over 2 weeks ago, my ankle is still swollen-not hugely but it’s there, the area is tender but not painful. I can wear walking boots, run on it etc (I hurt my knee too and that’s…[Read more]

    The vinegar approach sounds like a really good one, in creating an environment it can’t tolerate.

  • dax replied to the topic Athlete's Foot! remedies? in the forum Footcare 1 month ago

    Good one, had a scrub with pumice stone tonight and the hot itchy feeling has gone, along with an amount of skin. Thanks.

  • dax replied to the topic Athlete's Foot! remedies? in the forum Footcare 1 month ago

    Yeah, binned the original shoes, now have two identical pairs of everyday shoes (walking shoes Karrimor type things) so they don’t get worn on consecutive days. In an interesting side note as I knew I was going to do this I bought cheapo shoes (own brand rather than Merrill) at half the price and have noticed 0 difference in performance! Well…[Read more]

  • kate replied to the topic Athlete's Foot! remedies? in the forum Footcare 1 month ago

    Are you still using the same shoes? If so then bin them.

  • kate replied to the topic Athlete's Foot! remedies? in the forum Footcare 1 month ago

    Doctors tend to work on a process of elimination so I’d perhaps go back and check if his/her original diagnosis still stands. My thinking is that it might be a different type of infection albeit still fungal.

  • Sam replied to the topic Athlete's Foot! remedies? in the forum Footcare 1 month ago

    Boiling water.

    Failing that dogshit and salt. (do not take orally).

  • peter replied to the topic Athlete's Foot! remedies? in the forum Footcare 1 month ago

    Wrap your infected toe (or even your whole foot if you wish to be thorough) in a heavy duty duct tape then remove the infected skin by simply peeling it all off. If that fails then you may wish to try an extra coarse grade sandpaper or even an industrial blow torch in extreme cases of infection… 😉

    Hope this helps!

  • Gemma replied to the topic Athlete's Foot! remedies? in the forum Footcare 1 month ago

    Carefully grind dead skin off with a pumice. Dead skin stops so much of the stuff (be it anti-fungal compounds, vinegar, brine or cobra piss) teaching the live, infected skin underneath it.

  • andy replied to the topic Athlete's Foot! remedies? in the forum Footcare 1 month ago

    The problem with that is that the Athletes Foot adapts to your own urine and mutates to become immune to it. By far better to use other peoples and/or other animals, etc. I am joking ofcourse!

  • peter replied to the topic Athlete's Foot! remedies? in the forum Footcare 1 month ago

    Regular bathing of feet in vinegar.

    Nah, its your own urine that you need to soak your feet in to get rid of athletes foot.

  • Feival replied to the topic Athlete's Foot! remedies? in the forum Footcare 1 month ago

    I get really bad athlete’s foot from my running shoes. Get yourself to the chemist and ask them for the strongest stuff you can have. Don’t bother with the standard supermarket brands such as Scholl which is useless!

  • kate replied to the topic Athlete's Foot! remedies? in the forum Footcare 1 month ago

    If you’re really badly infected, change socks every day

    Serious question. Do people not do this routinely?

  • emme replied to the topic Athlete's Foot! remedies? in the forum Footcare 1 month ago

    Buy a tube of Canestan but get the thrush variety as it has 2% clotrimazole rather than 1% in the athlete’s foot variety.

    If you’re really badly infected, change socks every day, wash them hot, spray the insides of all your shoes with an athlete’s foot spray to kill the fungus and wash and dry your feet every day and apply the cream twice daily.…[Read more]
