In brief: The thing with
athlete's foot is fungal spores live 30 days, so you must treat it for at least that long, even if it clears up in a few days.
Also, there is a genetic predisposition to some fungi. If you're one of those people, you should be applying a cream daily FOREVER. Lotrimin, Lamisil and Tinactin (tolnaftate) are my personal favorites (in that order). Use the cream, not the gel or powder or spray, and use a tiny am

Over the counter medications can work, but they need to be used long enough. In addition, the feet must be kept clean and dry. Use powders; clean moisture wicking socks and change shoes daily. My personal favorite topical medication is Naftin, available only by prescription. It works well, faster and stays in the skin for a bit even after you stop using it.

In brief: Variety of products
Most topical antifungals will work on athlete's foot if use properly.
My favorite is a product that contains Lamisil (terbinafine). The problem with athelete's foot is that it usually returns. Use topical as needed. Keep it handy for reoccurrence.
