I brought this up last year and it was a fairly popular suggestion, endorsed by some around here. Did anyone try it and have positive results ? My feet are still looking great, no fungus at all

Does urine prevent foot fungus ?

Can't hurt. Just make sure you're not standing at a urinal.

No, but it does get gullible people to piss on themselves.

I don't know about foot fungus, but it does wonders for scaring off the Jehovah's Witnesses from your front porch.

I've heard it takes the "Sting" out of foot contact with jellyfish as well.

But I'm not going to do a barefoot shuffle on a jellyfish just so I can piss on myself and confirm or deny the rumor.

The pressure of the stream knocked the little bits of rust out and it healed faster than any other cut I have ever had. The healing power of urine is underappreciated IMO.

I have done this too. Meat tenderizer works as well.

Protip with sea nettles (most common stingy type around Maryland): they cannot sting you through your feet and hands and you can carefully pick them up (skin is too thick).

Pulled out too soon? j/k

What's the story on that? Jellyfish sting while swimming in the ocean?
Link Posted: 3/6/2006 9:04:05 PM EDT
urine is sterile for one thing, and contains amonia for another thing. this can help counteract foot fungus, but i wouldnt trade in my tinactin for it.

and for the jellyfish: the amonia helps. if you are going to have a risk of comming into contact with jellyfish, bring a small bottle of amonia with you. that saves the embarassment of either pissing on yourself, or asking your friends to piss on you, because you will never live it down

I read that somewhere. Greeks, or Romans brushed their teeth with urine. Something about the ammonia... Hell, now with fluoridated water, it's probably even better.

Not that I would ever drink fluroidated water sine it's a communist plot to contaminate my precious bodily fluids.

P.O.E.

That is a fact from roman times. The chinese and other asians also use it in their holistic medicine practices. It is beneficial to open cuts as an antiseptic as well. Urine contains many nutrients and such, people have extended their lives by hours if not days in rubble and at sea by drinking their own urine, not bad things to know from a survivalist standpoint.

No, you are all missunderstood!!!!
To pee upon ones feet is holy matter. The church teaches us to let our bodily fluids flow upon our bodies whenever possible. It is told that the poor will pee upon thier feet.
Foot peeing therefore will be encouraged!!!!

About the urine/athlete's foot thing--this was answered on the Straight Dope column a long time ago. The opinion there was that while there might be some antifungal properties to human urine, there are a lot of other substances made for the purpose that do a much better job.
-----
The thing with urinating on jellyfish stings is not so much related to urine as it is related to moisture: most jellyfish cells will automatically sting if they are dried out and then re-wetted. Sometimes when a piece of a jellyfish touches a person, very few of the stingers may have gone off. So you are supposed to do whatever is necessary to keep the entire area wet until you can get medical help.

Years ago when I was doing competition rowing there was a story going around that pissing on the blisters on your hands helped them harden and develop into calluses faster.

Urine does not cure or prevent foot fungus.

Urine does; however, both prevent and cure halitosis.

Years ago, I had a left foot that was practically rotting off me.

Some old drunken Indian recommended the use of my first morning piss. Hell, I'd piss into an old rubber boot in the AM, soak the foot a while and then pour piss out of the boot.

It took about 6 weeks, but the foot cleared up.


The problem had been bothering me literally for YEARS.


I'm a believer.

Ever see the Madonna/David Letteran interview?..

David: What are you going to do now, what are you going to do after the show?

Madonna: Did you know that it's good if you pee in the shower?

David: I'm sorry.

Madonna: I'm serious.

Madonna: No seriously, peeing in the shower is really good, it, it fights um um athletes foot.

Madonna: I'm serious, no urine is like, is like, is like an antiseptic, it's all got to do with the enzymes in your body.

David: Don't, don't you know a good pharmacist?

[laughter]

Madonna: Uhm...

David: Get yourself some Desinex or whatever that stuff is.

Madonna: I wanted to share something that I knew with you.

David: Ok, well, thank very much and uh I'm going to try to wrap this up.
