In brief: Same Thing...

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. A new product called "clean sweep" can be used to sterilize the inside of your shoes too. (http://thetetracorp.Com/products/clean-sweep/) see a podiatrist for more options.
