Home Remedy for Jungle Rot & Print it

Grandma: I cannot get my computer to print your pages. Is there a trick? Or do you have to give your permission?


Also I've been plauged with jungle rot (kinda like athaletes foot fungus only worse) since I was in nam. The VA does not have any medicane that will cure it. Do you have anything in your bag of tricks? I am going to try the vinegar soak/with listerine too see what happens.

cured my jungle rot
by: Popeye49

When I got back from Nam I had a bad case of the rot, I tried everything to cure it. My feet smelled like rotting meat, and I had holes eaten into them between my toes down to the meat. I came home and took off my boots (the jungle boots I had it Nam) and the stink was awful so I decided to take some drastic action. I got a large pail of the hottest water I could stand and added about 3 cups of chlorine bleach and soaked my feet till the water cooled. IT WORKED till I wore the boots again....more hot water and bleach and the boots went in the dumpster. Still good after all those years. Good luck my brothers (sisters too)

Jungle Rot & Suggestions
by: Grandma

Hi,

I'm so sorry to read about the suffering you must be experiencing from the jungle rot. I'm really surprised that the VA don't have a medication available for something like this, goodness, I'm sure there are many more veterans suffering from this.

The first thing I would suggest is to try the vinegar and listerine soak, which you said you would try. I'd also suggest you try adding turmeric to you diet. It's a spice that has been proven to really help with those suffering with psoriasis, another skin disorder. Just add it to any dishes you can tolerate some spice, as often as you can. Vitamin E is also great for skin disorders. I'd be sure to start taking it every day to see if you can get some relief. You might also want to try applying Witch Hazel after you shower. I'd just dab a small area at first to test it, it's worth a try, if you notice some progress in that area and no skin irritation I'd start applying it wherever you are affected.

I'm not sure why you can't print my pages out. You don't need my permission to do this. Maybe it's the pictures that is causing your printer to not respond. Try copy and pasting what you want to print into your word processor and see if you can print it out that way.
