In addition to topical anti fungal cream, you can try anti fungal foot powder. Keep your feet dry. Change socks daily. Make sure your shoes air out/dry out daily.

How to remove really bad athletes foot?

To start with...: The best otc medication (in my opinion) is lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra. Socks should be a synthetic material (i know i'll take heat for this) 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.

What is athlete's foot?

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 34 years experience
Tinea pedis rash: Tinea pedis, or athlete's foot, is caused by a fungus (often by t. Rubrum fungus) that can be on locker room floors or other people's footwear. If the fungus is able to take hold on the skin cells and start growing, one will get the athlete's foot rash. Tinea pedis should be treated to relieve symptoms and also to prevent it from spreading to the toenails.
