Athlete's foot is a fungal infection. In addition to using over the counter treatments like creams and sprays, you want to make sure you create an environment that fungus will not want to come back to. This includes keeping your feet dry and disinfecting your shoes. Also, keep in mind, fungus is everywhere. Any disruption in the skin can attract the fungus - avoid too dry skin too.

I don't know what you mean by "home treatments," but there are many over-the-counter antifungal medications that can be used at home. In addition, it's important to keep the feet as dry as possible. Dry them well after showering and avoid polyester socks or shoes that don't breathe.
