Treatment of tinea pedis is not difficult. Oral itraconazole 100mg bd with topical ketoconazole cream will give a very good result. However, recurrence is inevitable if tinea unguium is left untreated as the fungi will go from the toenails to infect the skin of the feet again. It is very important to treat the infected toenails as well. The treatment of the toenails might need a few months’ oral antifungal plus topical nail lacquer.
