Hi,

Tinea pedis is af ungal infection caused by dermatophytes.

After the clearance of tinea pedis, there may be some factor which may be responsible for the relapse. You consult dermatologist for investigations to find out some internal disease. There may be deprived immunity. Immunoboosters may be taken to improve immunity. External factors like perspiration,soap bath,excessive bathing may be avoided. Improve hygine. Take bath with diluted dettol liquid. Improve nutrition. There is no vaccine developed yet to prevent the relapse of fungal infection. I hope you got my answer.

Thanks.
