In brief: No.

Listerine is an antiseptic, won't penetrate the skin and kill the athlete's foot fungus.
Use a topical antifungal cream. Sometimes a prescription is needed.

In brief: Maybe

Listerine is known to have anti-fungal properties, but i don't think i would rely on it only.
Most literature has been on its use on toenails. If no itching or burning, it might not be tinea. You might want to try a moisturizing cream.
