In brief: Which one?

The treatment for athletes foot and eczema are very different.
Both can be treated well with topical creams, but the medications are very different. You should see your doctor to confirm your diagnosis.

In brief: OTC creams

Tinea pedis or athlete's foot often involves the area between the toes.
Anti fungal creams are effective for tines pedis whereas Hydrocortisone cream would typically be effective for eczema. Most cases of eczema need moisturizing while tines pedis areas need to be kept dry.
