In brief: Not so simple

Ventillate feet.
Get air & light on feet. Do not worry about public places! do not wear sox in bed. Otc antifungal cream for a long time & expect to use again. Maybe use forever. Look for generics to save money: miconazole, clotrimazole, ketoconazole, terbinafine are usually found easily. If you fail to see a dramatic improvement after a week, see a dermatologist.

In brief: Antifungal cream

If feet sweat, control sweating, decontaminate shoes, avoid public baths, showers when barefoot.
