Athletes Foot: Not every foot rash is af, but it is the most common. It can cause rash, blisters, burning, itching, and crusting. Start by using an otc antifungal cream such as clotrimazole, otc cortisone cream for the itch, breathable /wicking shoes and socks. Keep feet clean and dry, especially between toes. Powders are good to dust toes and in shoes. If no improvement after a week or two, see a doctor.

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.
