What I did use was apple cider vinegar with water. It's very simple just get a large bowl so both of your feet will fit and soak for 20-30 minutes. I did this a couple times a day for a few days bye bye athlete's foot. I have an idea how it came about I start working out on a regular basis again and running in the morning. My feet would get sweaty and I didn't clean them as much as I should I guess. I also was running in these old cross training shoes and that could have contributed to the athlete's foot.
Another reason may have been I would swim at the gym and walk around the side of the pool and maybe that also had something to do with it. Now I wear sandals all the time when I'm out the pool. I don't take showers at the gym because I don't want to look at the old guys who frequent the gym often.
