Dry inbetween the toes correctly so you don't get it in the first place, if already infected, one of the propriety powders or sprays do an admirable job of getting rid of it.
Use Vick's or any other brands of vapor rub on your feet up to 3 time a day to smother the fungus & soften your feet as well. Works wonders every time.
Believe it or not its garlic. Researchers just completed a study on the effects of garlic on fungus, including athletes foot, and was to be as effective as the prescription anti fungals. It was also found to be effecgtive on MRSA, when applied topically. I do not suggest using actual garlic on your feet, they have come out with a topical gel. If you use too much of the actual garlic, it can cause a burn, not a good idea. Garlic is also effective on corns and calluses as well. Keep the feet dry, wear cotton socks, and use a boot dryer for wet shoes. Fungus thrives in a wet environment, by keeping the feet dry, you eliminate the cause. http://artist101.hubpages.com/hub/Natur … -Psoriasis

As MickS says, dry well. But also wear sandals, or get your feet out in the air if it is feasible. The creams and ointments work very well if used consistently.
Tea tree oil is great for athlete's foot. Use a few drips in the area a few times each day until it clears up.
Tea tree oil can be helpful. What can also help is frequent foot baths in a mixture of 1 part vinegar and 2 parts water. Soak the feet daily for about 15 minutes and keep feet clean and wear socks of natural fibre. It is important to keep the feet clean and dry. Air the feet as often as possible so do not keep the feet locked up in shoes and socks all the time.

Why is it that sometimes you always get a blister in only one foot?I have a pair of sandals that when I wear will and walk a bit, I'd always get a blister in one foot but never the other - always the left, never the right. The left sandal is a mirror of the right so we can rule out design...
