Athlete's foot is actually quite complicated to treat, especially in persistent cases. The fungal infecting organisms will survivie happily in your shoes, re-infecting you constantly. You also need to look at the surfaces in your home where you walk barefoot such as the bathroom etc. Anyone sharing your home with you needs to be checked to ensure they don't have it as well which will also re-infect you. A fungal nail infection can also re-infect your feet.
So, firstly check all your shoes, there are ways to fumigate shoes, check with a pharmacy. Fomaldehyde works well. Make sure you always wear a clean pair of socks every day. Make sure no one else that shares your space has foot infection. Clean your surfaces well, a mild Jik solution will get rid of fungas. Once you have done all these things, you should get good results with Lamisil Once. If you still get nowhere, consult a dermatologist for prescription strength treatment. Trying to treat the feet without paying attention to the other issues will be a waste of time.
