Today I soaked in hydrogen peroxide for about 20 minutes, because I remember my grandfather curing my athletes foot that way. The affected areas turned bright white and it hasn't itched now since I did that, albeit a bit raw feeling, or sensitive I guess you would say. I just wanted to know if this is an acceptable treatment along with using the lotramin ultra cream or if I need to see a physician
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
The word lotto in the initial question was supposed to read Lotramin Ultra

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
