After reading through the remedies on this site, I soaked my foot twice per day in a mixture of salt (two tablespoons) white vinegar (one-half cup) plus enough hot water to cover my foot. Then I dried my foot thoroughly and used an OTC medication and baking soda or powder. The soaking got rid of the pain and itching and the OTC med got me on the road to healing. But some last lingering cracked spots just would not clear up, and I was worried about reinfection. I put some lip balm on those spots (Kiehl's Lip Balm #1) and they disappeared.
There is a company that sells an odor eliminator soap for hunters that I bought to help with foot odor. It not only stopped the odor but quickly cured my reoccurring athlete's foot in days. It worked great. It is called Scent Eraser Hair and Body Wash. I recommend it to everyone now.

Years ago, my grandmother fixed a solution of gullberry roots. She made the solution by boiling the roots until there was a tea mixture. Do not drink. I soaked everyday for a week and haven't had athlete's foot since. That was 1966.
Use a disposable emery board to file away any dead skin between your toes. Soak your feet in the sink in HOT water with LOTS of epsom salt. BLOW DRY your feet to get rid of every ounce of moisture. Apply Lamisil (require Rx) to toe cracks. Chan your socks daily and THROW THEM OUT EVERY DAY! Buy disposable foam inserts for your shoes and Tinactin (Over the counter) foot powder to put in your shoes until it clears and then once it is gone THROW THE SHOES OUT JUST IN CASE SO YOU DONT GET IT AGAIN - Better SAFE than SORRY!
soak your feet in warm water, and then file them to get as much hard skin off as you can. Cover you feet with a thin layer of oregano oil. It smmel bad but in 3 or 4 days it will be all gone! Plus oregano oil has so many other uses. Good luck
Ultra-violet light (aka tanning bed bulbs) and drying very thoroughly following bathing
A soak in hot epsom salts for 5-10 minutes, dry thoroughly, really thoroughly, and use Gold Bond Medicated powder all over (esp. between the toes). Don't use anything ointment or creme based as fungus thrives in moist areas! This might take several applications (in the same order) for a day or so but will work.
