Athlete's foot: Prevention is better than treatment. In public baths, use slippers to walk around and make sure to wash your feet very well. Do not wear somebody else's socks or tocuh somebody's toes/feet with the disease. There are many otc antifungals that are quite effective.
Dr. Alan Ettinger

Medication: Topicals work well. They are otc lamisil, (terbinafine) lotrimin.

Antifungal : Creams like Lamisil (terbinafine) or lotrimin would work well. Lamisil (terbinafine) cream, is over the counter, apply twice a day for one week and once a week thereafter if u are prone to athletes foot.

Topical Antifungal: Athlete's foot responds well to topical treatment, many of which can be procured over the counter. It is important that you apply the medication twice daily to clean and dry feet. Because you mention between the toe, apply a thin sparingly layer to these areas and allow them to dry well before putting on socks and shoes. Ask your pharmacist to direct you to the topical athlete's foot creams.
