In brief: You can

Spray the rug with any of the antifungal sprays or powders found in the drugstore for your feet.
(you might want to test a hidden area first to make sure this would not ruin your carpet.).

In brief: Difficult

Rugs can harbour the fungus.
Try spraying with lysol and then using a dry carpet cleaning process so that you don't add moisture to the carpet.
