The fungus that makes up what is commonly referred to as athlete's foot causes itching, burning rashes on the feet and in between the toes. Apple cider vinegar can help reduce pain and kill the fungus. Soak your infected foot in a bowl of vinegar for 10 to 30 minutes. If it burns, take your foot out and add a bit of water to dilute it. Then try again.
