Anyone has had or has the same but found a certain creme or other medication that really helps?
Keeping my feet dry is difficult as where I live, it's very humid and rains a lot.
I read that El Hospital de Solidaridad in La Victoria has a treatment by laser. Anyone has tried this out?
Sympathys euroman from a fellow sufferer. Not sure this will work in the selva being as you say more humid but I had a miraculous cure to this when I used to work in the highlands in Peru though I'm afraid I might upset people's stomach by recounting it.
I worked in a small village, three weeks at a time, where there was basically no water except that from a freezing standpipe. I used to wash every morning standing naked (sorry) with a bucket of water next to me but standing on a dusty concrete floor with my boots on. Hence I didn't wash my feet for three weeks. Miraculously after three weeks I would always have absolutely no hongos. It would only come back again after staying in Lima where I washed my feet during the week I was on my rest days.
So my advice is just try NOT washing your feet for a couple of weeks! Keep your feet dry by keeping them in waterproof shoes/boots. What have you got to lose but a few skeamish friends and that's only if you tell them!
