Fungus: It due to a fungus and many otc products work like lotromin besides that make sure feet are dry, don't wear same shoes every day and change socks daily. If that fails see a podiatrist.

SURE!!!: 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 in your home overnight. A new spray called "clean sweep" can be used to sterilize the inside of your shoes too.

Several: Soak feet in dilute tea solution. Soak in a very dilute bleach solution. Go to the pharmacy and buy some antifungal cream.
