Propolis against athlete's foot
Athlete's foot is a very unpleasant skin disorder, usually triggered by so-called thread fungi. Athlete's foot usually affects the toes and soles of the feet, primarily in the spaces between the toes. For those affected, athlete's foot is associated with itching, peeling of the skin and, in severe cases, with blisters and oozing. If athlete's foot is left untreated, it can also affect the nails, but not only that. Athlete's foot can then even become chronic. In addition, bacteria can penetrate the open areas, which can cause severe inflammation. Athlete's foot must therefore be treated as immediately and consistently as possible
If athlete's foot is treated promptly and consistently, the disease can be brought under control and cured.
How can propolis help treat athlete's foot?
Bees have always used propolis to protect themselves from bacteria, viruses, germs and, of course, fungi. Due to its many ingredients, propolis has a very broad spectrum of activity and is therefore used in both naturopathy and human medicine. Propolis is said to have antibacterial, fungicidal, cell protecting, antiviral and wound healing properties.
Propolis is a completely natural product, the different forms of action of which have been confirmed in numerous studies.
It makes sense to use a cream, ointment or balm with propolis as a preventative measure. If you already have athlete's foot, propolis will help kill the fungal spores and produce new healthy skin cells. Propolis is a preventive protection against nail fungus if you use it in time.
Propolis against skin fungus - this is how it works:
Propolis tincture and propolis balm:
Apply the propolis tincture 2-3 times a day directly to the affected areas of the skin and let it soak in and dry. Only then put on stockings or socks.
It is also helpful if you dissolve some propolis tincture in a water bath (approx. 50 drops in 4-5 liters of water and wash your feet with it. Then dry well and apply a propolis cream or some propolis balm.
It is important that you keep your feet dry and care for them daily. Change your socks daily and the towels and bed linen more often than usual. It is best to cook the laundry. Otherwise, the fungal spores will remain in the laundry and can still be contagious.
What is propolis made of?
Propolis consists of over 250 identified ingredients. Even if you now know the ingredients very well, propolis is a mystery, because only natural propolis has a balance that no industrially manufactured product can have. The busy bees produce this “miracle cure” all by themselves in a natural process. Propolis consists of approx. 50% resin and approx. 25% essential oils, pollen, minerals and trace elements, as well as flavones and acids.
The main ingredients are:
• Wax components
• Vitamins A, B, C, E, H or B7 (better known as biotin, the active ingredient for skin and hair)
• Iron, chromium, copper, zinc, manganese, selenium, magnesium, silicon
• Amino acids

Intolerance to propolis
Approx. 1% of all people have an intolerance to propolis, presumably as an allergic reaction to a certain proportion of bee pollen. Anyone who is allergic to bee stings or bee products should refrain from using propolis - both externally and internally through ingestion or addition to food. How to test if you are allergic to propolis: Apply the product to the inside of an arm. If a reaction occurs in the next few hours, you should not use any propolis products.
Be careful when buying propolis
In general, if you want to achieve the best effect, you should only buy high quality propolis with the highest possible propolis content. In the case of inferior goods, the effect often leaves a lot to be desired. Do not save in the wrong place under any circumstances - a high-quality product cannot be found in the supermarket for a few euros. In addition, one should make sure that propolis is not contaminated.
