As soon as athlete’s foot starts bleeding, wash with hydrogen peroxide!!
The athlete’s foot fungus, tinea pedis, is beginning to chew away at the flesh, and this causes bleeding. Stop the bleeding by killing the tinea pedis. Only when the tinea pedis that is chewing away the flesh is killed will the bleeding actually stop.
Stop the bleeding by washing with hydrogen peroxide that kills the tinea pedis and then wear open toe sandals so that the remnant tinea pedis is not enclosed and is not given another chance to hide and chew deeper into the flesh.
