All About Athlete's Foot

It's really itchy between your toes, it kind of stings and the skin's really tender, there's a good chance you've got athlete's foot or foot fungus.

And yes, you can get it even if the only athletic thing you do is play NFL Blitz on Playstation! Athlete's foot is an itchy rash between the toes. It makes your feet smell really bad and anyone can get it. It's caused when a nasty fungus starts growing between your toes - usually when your skin is warm and damp. This can happen if you don't change your socks regularly, or if you don't dry between your toes after having a shower.

If you've got athlete's foot - don't keep scratching where it hurts. Clean your feet, and when they're dry, put some anti-fungal cream on your toes. The fungus should clear up after a few days, but keep putting on the cream for a couple of weeks after. You can get these creams at any drug store, without a prescription.

So if you don't want itchy feet and don't want to make people puke everytime you take off your shoes, make sure you change your socks every day - maybe twice a day, if you exercise or play sports a lot. Make sure you dry between your toes after having a shower, and change the insoles on those stinky sneakers more than once a year. If you almost pass out from the smell of your shoes - it's probably time to do something!

I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated. It really does help to talk to someone (teacher, parent, counselor, or another trusted adult) about it. If you tell someone what you've written here I'm sure someone will help you.  As for the clubs, you really just gotta go for it. Things are always going to be scary at first but it will get better the more you get into it. And obviously being in a club should help make friends. I hope what I've said is even a little bit helpful! :)

YESSSSSS ! ! ! I love make up but I dont wear as much as ppl think I do. doing full make up takes too long but I wear concealer if I have a pimple or something to cover. I usually have my nails done but u dont have to do those every day, just touch em up unless u want to change the color. when I feel like more than that I do my lashes, lips an maybe eyeliner if I have time. having fun is more important than make up.
