What are the treatments for the disease?
Athlete's foot is easy to treat at home using an over-the-counter antifungal cream. The creams may contain tolnaftate, miconazole, or other medicines.
If over-the-counter creams do not work, a prescription medicine will be needed. The healthcare provider may prescribe antifungal pills, such as itraconazole or fluconazole.
Once the infection has healed, a person should follow the prevention measures listed above. The best way to avoid problems is to check the feet often for signs of anything unusual.
