Hot water is my best guess, it opens the pores

Luke warm works the best, helps open up the pores so they can drain and then heal. It's also a little more comfortable to soak in for an extended period of time.

yeah a while back my feet got pretty bad with athletes foot, but they mostly just itched.

I know your going cheap but you should consider new boots since you may reinfect with the current ones once you clear it up.

I do, and have never had a problem. i take them off and put shoes on when i leave work. i can tell you that i would rather wear my boot home, and everywhere, much more comfy than any shoes i have.

oh, get better socks...

Ive found that buying 2 pairs and switching on and off each day helps.. problem is the boots hold the moisture and take forever to dry out.. giving them a day off helps them dry out more.. again not cheap

do the red dye and wear a 2nd pair of socks, this will help remove the sweat from your feet and wick it away to the 2nd pair of socks. It keeps your feet dryer. I used the red dye once when I had some serious swamp foot from hunting a few years back. I stepped in a semi frozen river and my foot went through. I continued to hunt for the rest of the day. a few days later my foot was jacked up and I used that and within a few days it cleared it up.

Want to keep it from coming back?

1. SMARTWOOL socks.

2. Gold bond powder in your boots (easy on application if you get the blue (menthol) bottle - your feet will freeze!)

Boxer briefs. They come in different styles and lengths.

Actually, you should check out the briefs given your outdoor hobbies. The material makes motorcycling a lot more comfortable.
