ebl333 saidI have tried all those creams, some works alright, others don't. But here's one that I think put the total stop to the athlete's foot.
Iodine - dilute 1 Ts to 1 gallon of water. and rinse your feet twice a day. don't wash it off after. At the time I use Lotrimin for weeks, it would go away and came back again. Later i use Iodine wash and it never came back.
What concentration iodine solution are you diluting 1 Ts to a gallon of water (e.g. Providone-Iodine 10%)?
I wasn't aware of this iodine-based approach. What worked for me was 1% clortrimazole cream. As I recall it was a little less than $10 for a 1 oz. tube at a drug store, and a few $ less at Costco. However, the local 99-cent store has the same (concentration) cream (1%) for--you guessed it--$0.99. And that's for 1.5 oz tube rather than 1 oz. It's sold under the "Pro-Ex" Antifungal Cream label.
