Recipes of soda baths for the treatment of soda fungus

In medicine, the treatment of fungus with soda is widely used as an auxiliary.


A unique property of conventional baking soda is the destruction of fungal spores on the skin and nails. Baths with a solution of soda soften the nail plates and layers of the dermis, which increases their permeability. This allows local drugs to penetrate deeper.

Soda also has a disinfectant property. Fungus rapidly develops in conditions of moisture and heat, so the drying effect of soda creates unfavorable conditions for its growth and reproduction.

How soda is applied against fungus depends on the nature of the course of the infection process, the depth of tissue damage and is determined by the doctor.

How to properly prepare a bath


To treat the fungus on the legs and nails, you need to prepare a soap-soda solution.

You will need:

  • capacity convenient for feet size;
  • baking soda;
  • not aromatized liquid or grated children's or household soap;
  • hot water.

Preparing soda, which helps to get rid of the fungus on the legs, is as follows:

  1. First of all, it is necessary to prepare a container into which the infected part of the body can freely immerse.
  2. The concentration of the solution in each case is determined by the attending physician. Most often, for every two liters of water, a tablespoon of soda is poured.
  3. The temperature of the bath with soda, if not separately specified by a doctor, should be about 400C.
  4. The components are mixed until dissolved.
  5. Soap is added in the ratio of one spoon to 20 liters of water.

The infected part of the body is immersed in the bath for 30 minutes. To ensure that during the procedure the temperature of the solution does not decrease, it is necessary to pour in a little bit of hot water from time to time.

At the end of the procedure, the body is washed with water and carefully wiped dry or, which takes more time, it is left to dry in the air. On the dried skin on the foci, a medicament is applied. We must wait until the drug is completely absorbed. After that, dry warm socks should be put on, heated, to avoid increased sweating, to body temperature.

The temperature of the air in the room in which the bath for the feet or nails is held should be comfortable. Such foot baths should be taken once in three days.

Also it is possible to make various combined soda trays for feet from a fungus:

  1. It is necessary to take 2 liters of water, add 2 tbsp. l. soda and a glass of decoction of marigold flowers
  2. In the water 50 g of soda, 100 g grated soap and a few drops of natural essential oil of mint, lemon, pine, juniper or other coniferous plant are mixed.
  3. In hot water, dissolve 50 g of soda and sea salt and add 15 drops of iodine. The duration of such a bath is 15 minutes.
  4. Also, with a fungus in the soda bath, you can add 3 tablespoons of ammonia or 50 ml of 3% hydrogen peroxide.

Paste for nails

With a fungus of nails can help paste based on soda.
Such a paste for legs with soda alkalizes the acidic environment of the affected surface, thereby creating unfavorable conditions for the life of the fungus, drying out lesions. Pasta also removes spores of the fungus from the nail plates and skin.

Before the procedure begins, it is necessary to cut the affected nails as much as possible.

For the preparation of soda paste at home, it is necessary to pour soda into a small container and gradually add water to the consistency of thick gruel. Immediately after preparation, this mass is applied using a medical spatula on the sick nails. Instead of a spatula, you can use a small disposable wooden manicure spatula. The duration of the procedure is up to 20 minutes.

On the superimposed paste, you can drip a little lemon juice. In this case, between the soda and sour juice will be a reaction that manifests itself in the formation of air bubbles. This reaction will further enhance the permeability of the nail to the drug after the procedure.

Soda from the fungus will also act more effectively if you add aloe juice to it.

After the procedure, you should wash your feet with water, wipe dry and apply a doctor's prescription or medical medical varnish onto your nails.

Also good soda kills the fungus and spores all over the body. Therefore, such a paste can be used for fungal skin folds.
