Stubborn foot fungus: An oral antifungal may be warranted if you have tried over-the-counter antifungal creams (lotrimin, lamisil), prescription antifungal creams, followed preventive measures, and you have been properly diagnosed with athlete's foot (itch/rash/cracking b/t toes and bottoms of feet). If your athlete's foot has now involved your toenails then you will need to see your doctor for an oral antifungal.

MAKE SURE: Make sure it's fungal. Your doctor can test for it.
