In brief: Ususally

Topical antifungals such as Lamisil (terbinafine) and lotrimin are usually successful if use as directed.
The fungus that causes athlete's foot is common and reinfection is typical. Have the topical handy and use if signs of fungus appear. Dr l.

In brief: Several things

Keep the area dry, change your socks part way thru the day.
Make sure you keep the area clean. Use the lotromin for 2 weeks if not reaponding see a podiatrist for a possible prescription.
