In brief: Shoe breathing

Athletes foot is a fungal infection.
Humidity, sweating, poorly ventilated feet and shoes are the main cause. Antifungals in combination with eliminating humidity from your shoes are key. Try to alternate pairs of shoes, heat them and vent them after using. Antifungals creams take 2-3 week to kill so keep applying regardless of how they look or feel before 2-3 weeks are over. It will come back...

In brief: OTC medications

There are a lot of medicines available at the pharmacy that do not need a prescription.
Use them how the label advises. To prevent a return: keep your feet clean and dry. Use medicated foot powder occaisionally.
