Different fungi exhibit different patterns and characteristics. As dr. Fowler suggested, try using an over-the-counter anti-fungal like lotrimin, Lamisil or tinactin, (tolnaftate) twice a day. If you don't see any improvement in a few days, see a podiatrist or dermatologist, as it might not be a fungus.
If you do see an improvement, keep using the cream twice a day for 30 days, since fungal spores live for 30 days. If you keep getting athlete's foot, you might want to keep using an anti-fungal cream once a day for life. There is also something called a steri-shoe, which is an ultraviolet light that will sterilize the insides of your shoes in 40 minutes. If you keep getting reinfected, you might want to invest in that. I've attached a link. ...Read more
