Ozzy Osbourne Used Cocaine To Cure His Athlete’s Foot
September 27, 2010
Rocker Ozzy Osbourne once poured cocaine on his toes in a bizarre attempt to cure his athlete’s foot.
The former Black Sabbath frontman occasionally suffers from the fungal infection and struggled to find a remedy while he was touring in the 1980s.
And when the rock wildman was told his stash of cocaine was cut with foot powder – he rubbed it on his itching toes to ease his discomfort.
In his health column for Britain’s Sunday Times Magazine, Osbourne writes, “Funnily enough, in the 1980s I used to cure athlete’s foot by pouring cocaine on my toes. They cut the stuff with so much foot powder back then; it was the best treatment you could find if you had an outbreak on the road. The only problem was the price, which was around £3,000 a toe.”
