Paper, get some Lotrimin AF. It should work in a few days to a couple of weeks. Also keep your feet dry and clean. Dry and clean socks are important. Change them often. Wear slippers in the shower and dont share shoes or socks with other. Now, imagine a worse case scenario. Imagine if that itch was on your crotch!

Jock itch and Athletes foot are VERY close to being the same thing. They are different, but very close. Lamisil AT, which will wipe-out jock itch in about 3 days, does WONDERS for athletes foot. Lotrimin will take a little longer.

Lotrimin or Lamisil (usually the later) is what we suggest as OTC stuff. Both work fairly well. Keep your feet clean and dry to help prevent reoccurance. You sure it is just one small patch--that is fairly unusual, unless it is between the toes. If you have it anywhere else, it might be worth checking out to be sure it is not more significant (contact dermatitis, etc.). AFARR

Lotrimin Ultra (butenafine hydrochloride 1%) works for me. I used Tinactin for years and have found Lotrimin to be superior. Slippers in the shower is the key, especially at the gym and places like that. Actually, there used to be this stuff can Absorbine Jr., which was basically the active ingredient in Tinactin added to a bunch of plant extracts and oils. This is the stuff you save for bad cases that keep you up scratching at night. It's like pepper spray for the feet. It burns your toes so bad, you forget that they itch and you can sleep. Great stuff.

Had it all of last summer. Still have scars. Try some OTC spray but I actually passed out from the pain. The worst summer of my life! Keving67

Anyone ever get it so bad that you have them tiny little pustule/blister things? I've had it that bad and it's a nightmare.
