I don't think : One is stronger they just work differently. Try one. You should see improvement in about two weeks. The thing is many people need maintenance therapy or the fungus will grow back. Also, the shoe gear need to be lean and may need "medication" or shoe spray as well.

To start with...: The best otc medication (in my opinion) is lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra. Socks should be a synthetic material like those manufactured by thorlo [http://www.Thorlo.Com/]. Dilute vinegar soaks are good as well. Dry the inside of your shoes by placing them up-side down over an air return vent at home overnight. If this doesn't make things better in a couple days, see a podiatrist.
