Start with the skin. The skin needs to be treated with a topical antifungal cream. Keep you feet dry with the use of powders, socks which wick perspiration away from the skin. Shoes shouldn't be worn two days in a row and should be allowed to dry out between uses. There are sprays and even a shoe tree that uses uv light to kill fungus.
Several things. If you have been wearing shoes without sock and you have athletes foot it would be best to spray your shoes with an antifungal and let them dry overnight. You need good hygeine for your feet and need to use an antifungal on your skin to help rid of the fungus and prevent return.
How can I get rid of my chronic athletes foot? I always wear socks and wash my shoes regularly, but it seems particularly bad in my work flats
Change shoes and tx. Get rid of problematic footwear - otherwise wash all laces, soles and footwear in bleach - color safe - if it survives the wash, great - if it doesn't, sorry. Use Lamisil (terbinafine) cream twice daily for two weeks and repeat the wash also sun dry it after the dryer for a few hours.
Medication. You have taken the proper steps with good hygeine. You should use a daily antifungal spray or powder, but an oral antifungul for a short period my be the answer.
Exam. It's hard to know. I'd recommend you see a dermatologist or podiatrist to determine what the pustules are from. It may be something other than a fungal infection.
Seek advice. If you have a fungal infection it may. See your podiatrist to be evaluated.
There are many. I prefer otc lamisi.
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.
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.
No. I am not aware of any home remedies but there are a multitude of over the counter medicines to use, creams and spray powders.
No quick way. Good hygeine combined with topical medication. But it will take several weeks.
Lamisil (terbinafine) Lamisil (terbinafine) at is a good antifungal to treat athlete's feet. Use it as directed on the label and most get good results. If you do this and the problem persists, you may need to see a podiatrist or dermatologist. Keep in mind that because you cure an episode of athlete's foot you are not immune to reinfection. Keeping your feet clean and dry: using foot powders, rotating shoes, etc can reduce this.
Anti fungal meds. Use a topical anti fungal medication such as lamisil (terbinafine). I would start your son on it.
Topical antifungal. Creams. Otc can work, but prescription naftin (naftifine) 2% works best. Otherwise, you must change the environment in which the feet reside. Keeping feet clean and dry is paramount. Powders. Change shoes daily. Treat shoes with an antifungal spray.
Athletes fungus. Athletes foot is usually caused by a fungus which can be transmitted from human to human. If your athletes foot returns when your son is at home, perhaps he is the transmitter of the fungus. You will need a topical anti fungal that you can get at a pharmacy. If the over the counter cream doesn't help, then you would see a physician or podiatrist for a prescription medication.
