In brief: Impractical

Fungi causing athlete's are ubiquitous and it is possible to get re-infected after eliminating the infection with medication.
You may need to repeat treatment and keep your environment as free of fungi as possible.

In brief: No guarantee

There are things you can do to make it less likely to recur, like keeping your feet dry as much as possible, letting shoes dry out for at least a day before wearing them again, use an antifungal powder and/or cream, and using an antiperspirant, like prescription drysol, to reduce sweating.
