In brief: Infection from withi
You may need an oral antifungal medication to kill the infection from within.
In addition, you should get your feet examined to make sure you don't have a bacterial superinfection. Third, disinfect all shoes, slippers, footwear with an antifungal spray/vapor. Fourth, wash all socks in hot water. Either way, have your feet examined by a podiatrist.

possibly reinfected from shoes/socks/bathtub/shower/bathmat/slippers etc. Be sure to disinfect all those sources your feet come in contact with. Antifungal spray like Lysol is good for things that can't be washed in hot water. 10% bleach solution to sterilize tub/shower
