Dear Chris Davis, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
Athlete's foot (Tinea pedis
) is a fungal infection
of feet & will not be cured by antibacterial cream. Do as follows:
1) Wash your feet daily during bat with soap & water, & apply an antifungal azole powder after drying
2) Wear cotton socks only & change them daily
3) Take an oral antihistamine for a few days for itching
4) Also consider consulting a dermatologist; he may prescribe a 2-week course of oral Terbinafine
which is very effective for long-term cure.
