Topical antifungals: Are a good start, disinfecting your shoegear, washing feet daily. Preventing feet from sweating. Avoiding being barefoot in public places.

Lamisil (terbinafine): Lamisil (terbinafine) at is a good antifungal to treat athlete's feet. Use it as directed on the label and most get good results. If you do this and the problem persists, you may need to see a podiatrist or dermatologist. Keep in mind that because you cure an episode of athlete's foot you are not immune to reinfection. Keeping your feet clean and dry: using foot powders, rotating shoes, etc can reduce this.
