Read the directions.: It is best to follow what the product directions say. First, it is important to wash the affected area and dry completely. Then apply the product as per the directions to the area. For athlete's foot {tinea pedis), it is especially important to take care of the area between the toes, and change shoes and socks daily.

Antifungual Cream: Tinea pedis commonly known as athlete's foot is treated with over the counter or prescribed antifungal cream. Patient's apply cream or lotion to affected areas of the feet twice a day but must wash and dry feet thoroughly with a clean towel or paper towel before applying the medication. I bring the patient back every 4 weeks until skin is healed. It can take up to 6 months and recurrence is high.
