In brief: Prescription

Your doctor can give you a prescription for an oral medication that treats the infection from the inside.

Over-the-counter topicals also work well for athlete's foot and don't have any liver toxicity (which can be a potential problem in the drugs used). Wearing sandals can help (closed shoes promote fungal growth, especially sneakers). Also, mixing coconut oil with tea tree oil and rubbing inbetween toes at night can help (both have anti-fungal properties: lauric acid in coconut oil).

In brief: Antifungals

If you have tried otc antifungals then you may need a prescription for a topical antifungal or even a prescription for an antifungal in pill form.
