Medication, hygeine: Firstly, wear absorbant socks and change often, . Let feet air out when ever possible. Dry thoroughly after bathing. A small amount of powder in shoes will help. Usually topical medication is the first line treatment. In severe cases oral medication may be necessary.

Topical antifungals: Lotrimin, Lamisil (terbinafine) are two good topical s. If you do not get relief see your doctor.

Dry: Fungus likes a dark, warm, moist environment like inside your shoes and between your toes. Make sure to dry very well after bathing, especially between your toes, and use a topical anti-fungal cream twice a day.
