In brief: Foot fungus

The best way to treat a foot fungus is to use it a topical anti-fungal cream. You may need a prescription anti-fungal cream depending on the severity of the fungal infection.

In brief: To start with...

The best otc medication (in my opinion) is lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra.
Socks should be a synthetic material (i know i'll take heat for this) like those manufactured by thorlo [http://www.Thorlo.Com/]. Dilute vinegar soaks are good as well. Dry the inside of your shoes by placing them up-side down over an air return vent at home overnight. If this doesn't make things better in a couple days, see a podiatrist.
