Resistance: Topicals are the way to go in this area however when one agent is not working, switching to another agent is a good idea. Topical spray from CVS with tolnaftate a good start in addition to the paragon importance of good foot hygeine and applying your medication right after a shower/bath, changing footwear after sweaty activities. You should stop oral treatment.
