Yeah, you read that headline right.

A TikTok user (food_over_rx) claims that stuffing potato slices into socks sucks the toxins out of your body and will cure influenza.

I never can tell if people are being serious or not on TikTok. I’m guessing, based on her content, food_over_rx believes in this but…it’s a potato. In a sock.

@food_over_rx Potato sock flu remedy. It works !! My daughter has been feeling so much better !!! #potato #potatosocks ♬ Spongebob Tomfoolery - Dante9k Remix - David Snell
