Peeing on your feet

Background:  You people come up with some interesting stuff!!!!

I have a stupid question for you. I've heard that if you pee on your feet in the shower if will help prevent or help get rid of Athlete's foot. Is this true or am I just warming my feet with no medicinal effects???

Info: Well someone on the net helped us out with this one...although it is true that urine contains a decent amount of ammonia in urine and ammonia does kill germs.  It isn't in enough of a concentration to be able to kill enough germs to get rid of or keep your feet from getting athletes foot.  Plus while in the shower the running water would dilute the ammonia.  So there you have it...although a couple of guys say they will do it anyhow cause it feels good.  I guess if it feels good go with it.
